As I was writing a post about Britney Spears the other day, I couldn’t help but wonder what was new with her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, and that cute little baby she had some time ago. It seems that Jamie Lynn has definitely faded into the background and become known only as “Britney Spears’ sister”, despite my attempts to prevent that from happening. But, there seems to be a lot that’s new with Britney’s lil sis. She’s dumped her baby daddy, Casey Aldridge, and hooked up with someone quite a bit older than her. His name is James Watson and he’s everything Jamie Lynn needs. He’s ten years older than she is, she can see a future with him, and he’s got money. Sounds like a match made in heaven, doesn’t it? From Bump Shack,
“Britney Spears’ little sister Jamie Lynn Spears has reportedly broken up with her baby daddy Casey Aldridge and she has already found a new love, a 28 year-old local businessman by the name of James Watson.
The mother of the 19-month old Maddie Briann and James, who owns a company called Advanced Multimedia Partners, started dating last December and they are apparently really happy together. James is more mature, ambitious and a big spender, which is something that Jamie enjoys in a man.
“He installs communications equipment and high-definition TVs for large corporations,” the source says. “James enjoys making money — and enjoys spending it too.”
“They started dating last December,” a source tells Star. “I don’t think James cares at all about who she is; they really seem to like each other.”
Jamie could not imagine a future with Casey since he is young, immature and not exactly career oriented. The 18 year-old mom only stayed with her baby’s daddy for good publicity. “Even when she was pregnant, she didn’t really see a future with him,” a friend tells Star. “She only gave the impression of staying with him so long because it looked better in the eyes of the public.”
Okay firstly, I’m not buying the whole bit about how Jamie Lynn stayed with Casey because it looked good in the eyes of the public. Since when did either of the Spears’ girls what looked good to us? And good on them for it! Not to mention the fact that Jamie Lynn has been out of the eye of the public for quite some time. So, if this whole thing with her and Casey just went down recently, I highly doubt she was staying with him for appearances’ sake.
It does disappoint me that Jamie Lynn is so eager to be with someone because they have money. And I don’t know that an 18-year-old dating a 28-year-old is such a good idea either. But since when did Jamie Lynn Spears ever make good decisions? Sadly, it’s easy to see why she did only become known as Britney Spears’ sister.
