The National Enquirer is not a celebrity news source that can always be taken at face value, or trusted every time a new issue hits the supermarket aisle.
Don't get us wrong. That pic of Sanjaya Malakar's mom with a bong? That was pretty tight. And another story of theirs that we thought was baloney - Isaiah Washington going ballistic on the Grey's Anatomy set - turned out to have some merit as well.
The venerable celebrity gossip rag's newest claim, though, seems a bit far-fetched to our staff members: that Jamie-Lynn Spears is pregnant.
Granted, this wouldn't altogether shock the staff of The Hollywood Gossip dot com. After all, she's got Lynn Spears for a mother and the biggest train wreck around for a big sis.
But Jamie-Lynn Spears is only 16 years old. That's a year younger than Heroesâ€˜ Hayden Panettiere, and there's no way that cutie would ever get knocked up. Think about it.
Still, the Enquirer claims that some as-yet-unnamed guy has put a bun in the oven of Britney Spearsâ€˜ little sister - and may be looking at an 18-month jail sentence if it's true.
Well, unless he's also 16, in which case, holla at ya boy! We'll have more on this latest hot celebrity gossip rumor as more details become available.
UPDATE: Who knew the Enquirer was so prescient? While this story you are reading here proved to be bull$h!t ... sources confirmed on December 18 that boyfriend Casey Aldridge really did get Jamie Lynn Spears pregnant!
