Jamie Lynn Divorced Her Parents Following Heartbreaking Demand: Is That True?
Last year, Jamie Lynn published her memoir- “Things I Should Have Said.” In that book, she opened up about one of her brutal decisions in life – to get her parents divorced.
Yes, you read that right. Jamie Lynn tried to do so. What was the reason? The All That actress wanted to take back control of her life.
Talking more about the matter, Jamie Spears and Lynne Spears were aware of their daughter’s pregnancy at the age of 16. Just like everyone, they wanted her to opt for abortion. Jamie Lynn also shared that she used to get followed by “20 paparazzi”. Because of that, she moved to Mississippi, hiding from the unnecessary chaos and attention that she was not looking for.
In short, everyone, including her parents, wanted her to think that having a baby at that point was a terrible idea. She wrote, “Everyone was certain that termination would be the best course of action. Everyone around me just wanted to make this ‘issue’ disappear.”
What did Jamie Lynn do at the end? Naturally, she didn’t listen to anyone and gave birth to the child. She is named- Maddie, and raised her as a single mom. So proud of her!
It was in 1976 that Jamie Spears and Lynne Spears tied the knot. Besides their daughter trying to get them divorced in the past, their marriage already had its downfalls and issues. It was turbulent enough, in short.
In 1980, Lynne took the initiative and filed for a divorce. No, Jamie Lynn was not born at that time. But the divorce didn’t take place, and they reconciled. Later, Britney was born. After a decade or so, they welcomed Jamie.
In 2002, Jamie Lynn’s parents got divorced. But we all know true love has a way of coming back. After several years, more precisely in 2010, the pair rekindled and served their marriage again.
Discussing the parents, before Britney’s birth, her mother, Lynne, used to work as a teacher and also ran a daycare. Understandably, she has always been a hardworking woman. Because of some financial issues, this year, she started teaching again.
Now, Jamie Lynn herself has her husband- Jamie Watson, by her side. Also, she is very happy about the fact that her parents have reconciled. Well, every child would like to see their parents happy together.
