Spears Family Friend Says Lynne Uses Daughters as "Piggy Bank"

Merry Christmas, Lynne Spears. Your train wreck famliy is featured on the new cover of Us Weekly and the mag says they have you to blame! What are you going to do now?

Unlike the Ok! cover, where Lynne and Jamie Lynn Spears announced the 16-year-olds pregnancy, Us Weekly doesn't care what Britney's mom and sis have to say. The mag has actually talked to others who have witnessed Lynne's parenting first hand -- and say she may not always be looking out for her girls' best interest. "Jamie wanted something different for her life, and her mom put her in situations she didn't want to be in," Alexa Nikolas, J-L's Zoey 101 costar tells the mag. A different family friend concurs that Jamie Lynn wasn't really looking to go to Hollywood and be a star like Britney. "She never cared about celebrity -- she preferred Kentwood [Louisiana]."

Still not convinced? Another source goes as far to say that Lynne "treats her girls like a piggy bank." That's rough -- but believable, considering Lynne is the one that convinced Jamie Lynn to sell the story of her teen pregnancy to Ok!. "Lynne knew OK! would pay the most," a source said. "It was her decision." Which is why Jamie Lynn's dad was said to be furious, and why Britney was not told of the news until later -- they wanted to keep the deal quiet and in place. Lynne, who reportedly has earned a nice percentage of both of her daughter's business deals in the past, is said to be doing just fine. "Lynne got all her money through those girls and loved it when it started rolling in," a source told Us. "She's the only one with a Land Rover in Kentwood." I wonder what Dr. Phil has to say about that?
