The mother of Maddy Jackson, who appeared on ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ dressed as Dolly Parton, is being accused of sexually exploiting her daughter! Read on for the shocking details.

Maddy Jackson, 5, has been appearing in beauty pageants since she was 13 months old, but she outraged viewers last year when she appeared on Toddlers & Tiaras sporting controversial fake breasts and a Dolly Parton costume!

On TLC’s hit reality show, Maddy’s mom Lindsay Jackson was shown putting fake breasts in the dress, and now Maddy’s estranged father Bill Verst wants custody.

But Lindsay is fighting back hard to keep her daughter.

“Maddy has been doing pageants since she was a baby and this is the first time Bill has ever said I’m a bad mother,” she told Radar Online, according to the Daily Mail.

“‘He never made an argument about it until the show aired and now he’s trying to say that she’s sexualized and that I’m trying to exploit her and I’m not!”

However, Maddy’s dad doesn’t exactly have a clean record. According to Lindsay, Bill is a convicted felon on probation for a DUI and endangerment, which she says the judge and the court-appointed psychologist are ignoring.

The pageant mom also fears she is fighting a losing battle, thanks to her estranged husband’s wealthy family.

What do YOU think of Maddy’s participation in beauty pageants HollyMoms? Should her dad get custody?

I think most of these mom’s should lose their children. I think the show should be charged with aiding in this these crimes. But, mostly I think the Children Services should have every employees caseload reviewed. Obviously they acted in this case because of public opinion and not in the best interest of the child. This trash has been going on forever and needs to stop. Makeup, fake eyelashes, tans, wigs, hairspray, and even fake teeth all packaged in expensive clothes. If you want to judge a child’s talent or beauty then do in as the child is naturally. They have them dress like living adult dolls and pretend it’s for the children.

This show is disgusting, make up and sexy dresses were never meant for babies, no wonder there are so many pedhophiles running loose while these irresponsible parents keep showcasing their children to them. I guess we learned nothing from the JoanBenet Ramsey tragedy, this happened because of her parents obsession with these stupid sick pageants.
If you use your children to get fame and fortune then you do not deserve to be a parent, get a real job.

COME ON …………….It is a costume just like a kid would wear on Halloween Night having fun. Dolly Parton has Big Boobs and a Big But, where does anyone else see her any different from that. It is a fact.
If you look at all the other beautiful little girls in this pagent you will also see every one of them posing, blinking there eyes at you, pointing at you the judges in a flirty way…….but being cute. They’re beautiful and planning for what they want later on in their future, BEING IN FRIGGEN PAGENTS AND BIENG A QUEEN.

What is the problem with this, keep all your kids home on Halloween from now on and just Ban that holiday.

Robin, you just don’t get it. It’s wrong for children to dress provocatively at anytime and Halloween is no exception. Wrong is wrong all of the time.

You sound like a little kid yourself. You sound immature. If the mothers are let off too lightly they will only continue with inappropriate behavior. Your point is not proven in the least.

@ Melanie …That is a horrible thing to wish on someone. As parents we make mistakes daily. That why we are here in this world…to constantly strive to be better. Do i think she made a mistake absolutely. Does her mom need a wake up call definately. but, to say that her mother should never see her daughter again is crazy. you sound as crazy if not crazier than her.

Who said that she would never see her daughter again if taken away. Obviously the child won’t be a child forever so that would not be so. They might charge her with something and make her stop with the contests. If they don’t put some fear in the mothers they will keep on with their very poor judgment.
