There's more baby drama for pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears - if you believe Life & Style Weekly, anyway. We're not entirely sure you should. Just remember the whole In Touch Weekly J.R. Rotem-Britney Spears pregnancy lie.

Anyway, a day after news broke that 16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant, a Spears family insider (and, apparently a huge sellout) tells Life & Style that she and Casey Aldridge, the father of her unborn baby, are broken up!

A probably bogus source claims Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge broke up. Which is entirely feasible, we just don't trust the magazine that's reporting it.

"Jamie Lynn and Casey are NOT together. They've broken up numerous times, but he was her first and she kept taking him back," says the insider.

"They are not dating now. He's really got nothing to offer this baby. He is only a kid himself. They have no plans to get married."

"At this point, Jamie Lynn has asked her mom (Lynne Spears) â€" and not Casey Aldridge â€" to be in the delivery room with her."

A rep for Jamie Lynn Spears was not available for comment on the matter. No comment from Britney Spears either. But that nutcase is just out to lunch.

The Hills are alive ... with the sound of cash registers going cha-ching. Lauren Conrad has debuted her own fashion and bag lines! Take that, Heidi!

"I'm serious about my lines and I do them as a designer and not as someone on a reality show. I wanted to create a brand that will last much longer than my TV series," says Lauren Conrad calling from her home in (where else) the Hills.

The Hills star's custom goods will be available online - only at lpcollection.com and shoplaurenconrad.com. The Chicago Sun-Times talked to Lauren Conrad a little bit this week about her clothing line and her future career plans...

CST: Was designing clothes and bags a dream of yours for a long time?

LC: I've always wanted to design clothes and then the bags came to me as another opportunity. I've always loved Linea bags so it was a great fit and they allowed me to do my own twist on it. As for the bags, I like purses with a more simple design. Now there are a lot of bags with tons of hardware on them. Mine have a simple chain. I wanted the bags to be classic because when I spend money on a bag I want to use it for as many seasons as possible.

Lauren Conrad makes a pretty designer. Er, makes pretty designs!

CST: Your bags aren't as expensive as some of the lines out there.

LC: The biggest criticism I got at first was that I wasn't making my line affordable to fans. That's one of my goals.

CST: Lauren, love the tote bag because it gives you a lot of room.

LC: When I designed a tote bag I wanted it big enough to fit magazines into it. I'm always traveling, plus I'm a student. You need a lot of room in those bags. Plus my bag has a clip so you can make it look smaller."

CST: Define your own style when you're not filming The Hills.

LC: I like to be comfortable in my clothes. I love the empire cut when it comes to shirts and dresses. It's also something that's great to wear if you don't have a perfect body. Who needs tight stuff? I think most women are happy with a little give in their clothes. What I wear depends on my mood. I do love wearing dresses. They're just easier. I love, love, love 3.1.

A day after calling out Jessica Simpson for showing up and distracting Tony Romo during the Dallas Cowboys' loss to Philadelphia, star receiver Terrell Owens is now saying he was kidding and didn't mean to cause trouble.

"I tried to get [Tony Romo] to call her so I can explain to her that she doesn't really know me and that I can be funny," Terrell Owens, a.k.a. T.O., told the Dallas Morning News. "Everything I say, the media will take it and run with it. It's not a big deal. I will try to rectify the situation between her and I."

We can only imagine the hilarity that would ensue if said phone conversation were to actually take place. Probably something along the lines of this ...

Terrell Owens: Jessica, it's TO. I want to rectify this situation.
Jessica Simpson: I don't rectify on the first phone call.
TO: What if I hung up and called back?
JS: [pauses] Well, that would make it our third phone call; let's do it.

[TO hangs up and calls again]

JS: Hello?
TO: So, can we rectify this?
JS: Who is this?
TO: Jessica, it's TO. We just spoke.
JS: A consonant and a vowel on the same line? Now I've heard everything!
TO: The media has taken what I said about you and printed it. I didn't realize they could do that, and I certainly had no idea you could read. So you see theNice Rack situation I'm in. I want to rectify this.
JS: I don't rectify on the first phone call.
TO: [mutters incoherently and hangs up]

[TO calls back, Crazy Joe Simpson answers this time]

Joe Simpson: Joe Simpson.
TO: Um, this is Terrell Owens. I, uh, I was...
Joe Simpson: Are you threatening one of my employees?
TO: Look man, I-
Joe Simpson: No YOU look, man. I run the show around here, y'understand? I have a lot invested in Jessica, and I sure as hell don't need your-
TO: I'm just trying to rectify...
Joe Simpson: You can rectify my foot up your ass, boy. And quit complainin' you don't get the ball enough. Tony is doin' his best out there. But... out of curiosity, are you single?
TO: Um... I'm often double-covered these days because I'm an exceptional talent. One for the ages, really. But I'm not dating anyone, if that's what you mean. But Tony and Jessica are going out, so...
Joe Simpson: So what?!? She can date you both. Twice the exposure, right? We can make a movie about it. Jessica Simpson Does Dallas Cowboys. I'll produce it.
TO: Isn't that a bit awkward, I mean...
Joe Simpson: And I have another daughter named Ashlee. Can she play running back for you guys?
TO: Julius Jones and Marion Barber do a fine job already. Can you just tell Jessica we're all good? No hard feelings?
Joe Simpson: Know who was hard a lot? That Nick Lachey guy. Because he got to see my hot daughter naked.
Jessica (in the background): Dad! I need help with this bra!
Joe: Coming, dear! [hangs up]

Despite Terrell Owens' best efforts to rectify the situation between Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson... pimp/father Joe Simpson just confused him thoroughly.

At least 12 weeks pregnant, Jamie Lynn Spears isn't showing any visible signs of carrying the love child of Casey Aldridge. But just you wait.

This begs the question, of course, of how a high-profile 16-year-old ought to dress for the inevitable "bump watch" that is to come?

"She's a young girl, so I would want to keep [her look] innocent," a top maternity designer, Liz Lange, told People at the Great Debaters premiere in New York.

"I think little cute dresses and jeans with tight-fitting tee shirts... [Jamie Lynn Spears] is only 16, and I'd like to see her look her age."

Jamie Lynn Spears can take comfort in the fashion advice of Liz Lange.

As for how her style should differ from her big sister, Britney Spears, who frequented Liz Lange's L.A. boutique during her two pregnancies, Lange says:

"Britney was into cowboy boots with little dresses. That was her style. I'd like to see Jamie Lynn go a little plainer. [No] belly baring for her!"

Any deviation from Britney Spears' life decisions can only be a good thing.

"I hope she's ready for this. It's definitely a big step," Liz Lange added, stating the obvious. "I know that as a mother myself. But if this is what she wants and what their family wants, then mazel tov."

The news never stops when 16-year-olds get knocked up. Here are more excerpts from Jamie Lynn Spears' $1 million interview with OK! about her pregnancy...

On the sex of the baby: I want to find out as soon as I can because I'm impatient. I just want a healthy, happy baby, so the whether it's a boy or a girl really doesn't matter that much to me.

A Jamie Lynn Pic!

On names: I haven't thought about names yet. I have to hear some options!

On morning sickness: I definitely had morning sickness, but it's getting better. It was at its worst a few weeks ago.

On not having cravings: I haven't really got much of an appetite right now. I mean, I eat, but I'm not going crazy or anything.

On believing she'll be a good mom: I love babies, and I have two nephews (Sean Preston and Jayden James) that I love. I have a great mother and she has raised three kids, so if I take lessons from her, I think I'll be great.

Casey Aldridge got Jamie Lynn Spears pregnant. Way to go man!

On marriage: Right now, [Casey Aldridge and I] are focusing on the baby and making sure we do all we can to have a healthy baby. We're trying just to think about that right now, so we haven't really talked about that.

On Casey Aldridge as a father: He's always been good with babies. He's like a big teddy bear, especially around babies, so I know he'll make a good dad.

On her hopes for 2008: Just to have a healthy baby and a healthy pregnancy and for everything to fall in place and to become a stronger person from here.

Plenty of fans are angry at Jessica Simpson for her perceived jinxing of Tony Romo last weekend. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens among them.

The 27-year-old "singer-actress" has sparked rage among Dallas Cowboys fans, angry at Simpson's appearance at Sunday's game and the abysmal showing by Tony Romo, their quarterback and her new boyfriend. Dallas lost, 10-6.

Asked about the Jessica Simpson situation, Terrell Owens - the team's star wide receiver and a frequent controversy magnet himself - chimed in: "Right now, Jessica Simpson is not a fan favorite ... in this locker room or in Texas Stadium."

Rah Rah Romo

Terrell Owens would just as soon not see this #9 show up next week.

Tony Romo had what was statistically the worst game of his career as Dallas lost to the Philadelphia Eagles... all while Simpson sat in a luxury box wearing a pink Tony Romo #9 jersey she proudly showed off for television cameras.

Her pimp and father, Joe Simpson, was also on hand.

Still in the minds of Cowboy fans is the fact that Tony Romo's previous worst game came last December at home - also against the Eagles - when another famous girlfriend, Carrie Underwood, was in attendance.

"With everything that happened, the way Tony played and the comparison between her and Carrie Underwood, I think a lot of people feel like she's kind of taken his focus away," Owens said. "Other than that, she was hot on my list until last week.

And the receiver isn't done if Jessica Simpson dares show her face again.

"Oh, I got a message for her when we make the playoffs," he added. "Just stay tuned."

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards is lagging behind both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in the polls. A potential love child scandal, as claimed by the National Enquirer after a "blockbuster investigation," certainly can't help.

The Enquirer has learned that Rielle Hunter, a woman linked to John Edwards in a cheating scandal earlier this year, is more than six months pregnant â€" and she's told a close confidant that Edwards is the father of her baby!

Man. Who would've guessed that John Edwards and Jamie Lynn Spears' baby daddy, Casey Aldridge, had so much in common!? The National Enquirer even (falsely) reported a story involving a pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears back in July!

This political bombshell comes just weeks after Edwards emphatically denied having an affair with Rielle Hunter, who once worked on his campaign and told a friend she was romantically involved with the married ex-senator.

Well, the Enquirer says it is now confirming that Rielle is expecting, and that she's gone into hiding with the help of a former aide to John Edwards.

Rumors of an affair between Rielle Hunter and presidential hopeful John Edwards have persisted for months - and now there's an unexpected pregnancy twist.

The visibly pregnant blonde relocated from New York to Chapel Hill, N.C., where she's living in an upscale gated community near political operative Andrew Young, who's been extremely close to John Edwards for years.

And, in a bizarre twist, Andrew Young â€" a 41-year-old married man with young children himself â€" now claims HE is the father of Rielle's baby!

Others are skeptical, wondering if Young's paternity claim over Rielle Hunter's alleged offspring is a cover-up to protect John Edwards.

Daddy-to-be Casey Aldridge has been close to the Spears family for some time, as both a hometown boy dating the youngest Spears daughter, and acting as a buffer between the teenage actress and the pressures of Hollywood.

"He took amazing care of Jamie Lynn," a source close to the Spears family tells People. "Anything ever went wrong, he always comforted her. He took care of her."

Jamie Lynn Spears and her mother, Lynne Spears, say that Casey Aldridge is the father of the baby the 16-year-old announced she is pregnant with.

Casey Aldridge is believed to be either 18 or 19 and has stayed out of the Hollywood spotlight, only occasionally accompanying Jamie Lynn to events.

He grew up in Liberty, Miss., about 30 miles from the Spears family home base in Kentwood, La., and played high school baseball and football (Aldridge is listed in a sports directory as a lean six-foot-one, and 165 pounds).

Recently, he has been living in Southern California and was a fixture at the condo where Jamie Lynn was staying while filming her Nickelodeon series Zoey 101.

Jamie Lynn Spears' parents love Casey Aldridge, even though he got her pregnant.

In California, Casey Aldridge drove her to the set every day and stayed while she worked, impressing both Lynne Spears and Jamie Lynn's father, Jaime Spears.

"Jaime always talks about how he really likes Casey because he's a great guy," the Spears family source says. "Lynne really likes him, too. He's a good kid, cares a lot about Jamie Lynn. They both adore Casey."

The pregnancy, a source close to Casey Aldridge says, was a surprise.

"I'm sure it was a shock to him," the source says. "He has all sorts of plans for his future. He wants to start his own business, maybe get a degree and make something of himself."

Casey Aldridge will also take responsibility for his actions.

"He's a stand-up guy, and he will take care of the baby," the source says. "He is not the type to let her deal with it on her own. He will be there in any way he can for Jamie Lynn... I know a baby wasn't in his plans for right now, but he'll do what he has to do, and he'll be a good father. He really will."

Sources report that the pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears was not paid for this week's OK! Magazine interview ... yet. The money - $1 million of it - is going to change hands later on down the road, after her baby with Casey Aldridge is born.

How did the deal go down? It started when Britney melted down at an OK! Magazine photo shoot this summer (one of so many great Britney moments of '07).

Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears

Britney Spears and Jamie Lynn's mother, Lynne Spears, then read the disastrous account in the article and called OK! to thank them "for handling it so well."

She stayed in touch with OK!, and called them after she learned that boyfriend Casey Aldridge got Jamie Lynn Spears pregnant. Lynne's only requirement? Keep Britney out of it. This is about Jamie Lynn alone, Lynne told them.

"She trusted them to do it in a way that would be sympathetic to her daughter," a source tells the venerable celebrity news website TMZ.

Lynne Spears brokered an OK! deal for a pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears.

Jamie and mom did not want money up front, but OK! agreed to pay $1 million to Jamie Lynn Spears for a photo shoot after the child is born. That should help her statutory rapist / baby-daddy Casey Aldridge with his legal bills, at least.

Why the figure of $1 million and not higher?

Because the 16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears is not an international star, the celebrity gossip magazine knows it can't sell the pics overseas, and thus, doesn't want to shell out multiple millions of dollars for them. Good thinking, OK!

Interesting side note: Buzz is circulating that Jamie Lynn is a bit further along in the pregnancy than the 12 weeks she says in the article. Spring baby, anyone?

Also, it appears that the OK! servers crashed because of the site's huge traffic in the past 24 hours - not unlike The Hollywood Gossip's server when the Vanessa Hudgens nude photo scandal broke back in September. We feel for you, guys.
