Who Is Jamie Lynn Spears' Ex, Casey Aldridge?

In the wake of the statement Britney Spears gave to a judge in Los Angeles, detailing the horrific conditions she's been subjected to under her 13-year-old conservatorship, the entire Spears family has been under scrutiny. Britney singled out her father, but said, per Variety, "My whole family did nothing." Jamie Lynn Spears, who had been mostly removed from the scandal, was now bashed by fans for not standing up for her sister.

Jamie Lynn eventually broke her silence via an Instagram story. "I don't care if she wants to run away to the rainforest and have a zillion babies in the middle of nowhere," she wrote. "I can assure you that I've supported my sister long before there was a hashtag. And I'll support her long after." However, Britney's ex-husband Jason Alexander called Jamie Lynn out. He released an exclusive statement to the Free Britney Twitter (via Radar Online) account in support of Britney and said, "Jamie Lynn also hasn't had a conversation with Brit in almost a year so I don't know what that brat was spoutin off about yesterday."
