While Maddy Jackson’s parents were locked in a bitter custody battle for months, she was banned from competing in pageants. But her mom Lindsay Jackson won her fight — and Maddy is back on the pageant circuit!
Maddy Jackson, 5, star of TLC’s Toddlers & Tiaras, came under fire after posing in a Dolly Parton costume complete with fake breasts — and her dad Bill Verst accused his ex-wife Lindsay Jackson of overly sexualizing their daughter!
But a Kentucky judge ruled that Lindsay was not exploiting their daughter — and awarded her primary residential custody, with both parents having joint legal custody, according to RadarOnline.com.
As for the pageant ban that was placed for the 5-year-old, the court said she is free to enter the pageant circuit again.
“The ban against Maddy participating in pageants has been lifted,” a judge told RadarOnline.com. “She can participate in them, but there has to be a written agreement by both parents. The agreement does not have to be submitted to the court. This will still be an ongoing case since the parents disagree about the pageant participation.”
We’ll keep an eye out for Maddy in pageants — we just hope she stays away from the risque costumes!
