Whoever imagined Jordan Miller, who started a Britney Spears fan site while a high school sophomore in 2004, would one day receive half a million visits a day?

Whoever imagined Miller, now a typical college student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, would be threatened with legal action by her dad, Jamie Spears?

Miller's world was turned upside-down last fall after he received an angry phone call from the pop star's father-guardian, accusing him of copyright violations.

"I'm working my ass off to report on this girl," Miller said.

In February 2008, after Britney Spears was forced into a treatment program for bipolar disorder, Jamie Spears was awarded conservatorship, giving him the authority to make legal, financial and medical decisions on behalf of his daughter.

Miller posted several blogs begging for Britney to be "freed."

Baby-Faced Britney

One fan site creator's opinions on Britney and posting of stories about Jamie Lynn Spears apparently have not gone over well with the stars' father and chief handler.

He also posted about a magazine story that suggested Britney's younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, was expecting her second child. Then his cell phone rang.

Miller said Jamie Spears told him, "I am going to destroy your ass."

"I was really freaking out for a good three or four weeks," Miller said. "Lately, I've been doing my own thing. I just kind of want to keep it going."

Each day, Miller scans the Internet for stories about Britney Spears, posts them on his site, BreatheHeavy.com, and adds his own comments. He encourages her fans to send him Circus tour photos or updates regarding her.

Miller said the site keeps him busy, but it is not as demanding now as it was when the troubled, out-of-control singer was shaving her head, bashing vehicles with an umbrella, being photographed without no underwear, and so on.

Federal and local authorities are on the hunt for someone peddling 12 pics of Britney Spears, Jamie Lynn Spears, daughter Maddie Briann Aldridge and baby daddy / fiance Casey Aldridge. And you won't believe the reason why.

One of the pictures shows Jamie Lynn Spears breast-feeding Maddie Briann - and Jamie Lynn's left breast is exposed. She is 17 years old. Got it?

Possibly Free Soon

The photos were taken on Casey Alridrge's digital camera. He took the camera to a local local Wal-Mart in Louisiana for copies. Law enforcement officials believe someone at the Wal-Mart made extra copies, then tried selling them.

Because Jamie Lynn Spears is a minor, selling the pics - or buying them - likely constitutes a violation of federal laws prohibiting pornography.

NOTE: Why Casey Aldridge feels the need to photograph this is another unanswered question, but whatever floats your boat. It's his business.

Life used to be much simpler for teen lovers Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge.

Peddling celebrity pictures of a minor's breasts - even if the intent is not for sexual purposes - could land both the seller and the buyer in federal prison if said pics are marketed across state lines for the purpose of being lurid.

Furthermore, anyone purchasing the lewd pictures could end up being prosecuted for the crime of receiving stolen property.

Other yoinked photos include Britney Spears holding Maddie; Jamie Lynn, Britney and Bryan Spears; Lynne and Jamie Spears around Jamie Lynn's hospital bed; Maddie by herself; Jamie Lynn Spears in a (hot!) negligee with the baby.

Authorities are trying to find the man attempting to sell the photos. In addition, Britney's lawyers are considering going after Wal-Mart for the security breach.

The Spears family policy towards paparazzi: If you can't avoid 'em, date 'em (right, Adnan?), and if you can't date 'em... hate 'em arrested!

Edwin Merino of Los Angeles, Calif., was arrested on Tuesday on charges of stalking pregnant teenage mother-to-be Jamie Lynn Spears.

Authorities in Liberty, La., say Edwin Merino wouldn't leave 17-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge (her fiance and baby-daddy) alone.

Who on earth would stalk this adorable, domestic couple?

The celebrity picture-taker was in the middle of a four-day visit to the small town in Mississippi where the two just bought a house.

Merino denies the charge, saying that he was some 200 feet away from the couple, using a long lens, at the time he was arrested.

"I think since I was the only [celebrity photographer] there, it was just easier for them to single me out," he told authorities.

According to sources, Merino spent some time in jail before posting $1,143 in blood money bail and being released. Good riddance.

OK! Magazine, the now-infamous celebrity news and gossip source, could not possibly have purchased all the attention it enjoyed last month after it got the scoop that Jamie Lynn Spears is three months pregnant.

Or could it?

It is widely assumed within the publishing industry that OK! paid Jamie Lynn Spears' family for the exclusive rights to Jamie Lynn Spears pregnancy news.

Us Weekly, another celebrity news magazine, cited sources who said that Jamie Lynn's mother, Lynne Spears, sold them the pregnancy story for $1 million, an assertion that enraged her ex-husband and Jamie Lynn's dad, Jamie Spears.

Checkbook journalism is no secret in the celebrity gossip world.

The gossip publications often pay for photos of weddings and babies, perhaps most famously in June 2006 when People won a fierce bidding war for the first photos of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's daughter, Shiloh Nouvel.

Although People said that the widely reported $4.1 million price tag was not accurate, it did not offer an alternative figure; editors say that disclosing prices paid would work against efforts to keep the costs down.

  • A Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears
  • Destroyed By Lynne Spears

But purchasing news of a pregnancy is as unusual as it is controversial. After OK! broke the story of a pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears, rival celebrity news tabloid Us Weekly boasted in its subsequent issue that OK! paid Lynne Spears $1M for it.

The two-year-old American edition of OK! Magazine, like its 14-year-old British counterpart, acknowledges paying for "relationships" with celebrities, but Sarah Ivens, the U.S. edition's editor, declined to discuss specific deals or figures.

"If there's something out there, there will be a bidding war," Ivens told The New York Times. "We're not bidding against ourselves."

When asked why she was less hesitant than some competitors to acknowledge purchase of celebrity photos, Ivens said: "I'm not very good at lying."

The interview with Jamie Lynn Spears, 16, drew copious attention to OK!, which sells far fewer copies than competitors like People, and provoked speculation about a relationship between OK! and Lynn Spears - a relationship strained by a disastrous photo shoot with Jamie Lynn's sister, Britney Spears, months ago.
