Can you believe these teen parents aren’t together anymore?
Jamie Lynn Spears, 18, is moving on with her life after splitting from Casey Aldridge, the father of her 19-month-old daughter Maddie, People is reporting. And it sounds like she’s found new love in the arms of 28-year-old businessman James Watson! “She did a lot of growing up but [Casey] didn’t,” a source close to the family says. “I think she put up with more than she cared to put up with. She just got enough of it and was tired of the situation.” Jamie Lynn reportedly moved out of the house she and Casey shared in Liberty, Miss., six weeks ago and has since moved back in with mom Lynne Spears.
Jamie Lynn and Casey had originally planned to get married when Jamie Lynn first found out she was pregnant in 2007, but their plan hit a series of bumps along the way. Their situation seemed hopeful after an April 2009 car accident changed Casey’s attitude, forcing him to think more seriously about his life plans, but they didn’t end up getting married.
“She’s going through a lot of changes,” a family friend tells People. “It has been painful. She’s a young mother and struggling in a lot of areas.”
