In December of last year, rumor had it that Casey Aldridge cheated on his then-pregnant, bride-to-be Jamie Lynn Spears, and now a 28-year-old woman has come forward claiming she was the teen’s other woman.
Kelli Dawson told In Touch magazine she dated the 19-year-old, but insists he started the affair. "He totally instigated it and pursued me,” she said.
Though Casey has yet to comment on the allegation, Kelli isn’t the only one willing to go on record about their relationship. Fellow Louisiana native Jason Alexander, who was married to Jamie Lynn’s big sis, Britney, for all of 55 hours back in 2004, says he knew about it, too.
“Kelli and Casey have been a couple on and off for a few years,” Jason revealed. “They were a really tight couple, but I think it was hard for Kelli, having Jamie Lynn in the picture.”
Though Kelli assures she’s no longer sexually intimate with Casey, she told the magazine things were still hot and heavy between them just a few months before Jamie Lynn gave birth to baby Maddie in June.
“(Casey) had to deal with the baby coming, and it had to stop,” Kelli said. But “even after we stopped having sex, we would still kiss occasionally.”
According to Kelli, she’s still on good terms with Jamie Lynn’s man. “I see him all the time, at least once a week,” she added.
Madonna to adopt again Despite earlier reports to the contrary, it looks like Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie will adopt another Malawian orphan. The Sun spoke with an adoption minister from the African nation who confirmed the queen of pop wants to add a little girl named Mercy to their growing brood.
“Madonna’s representatives have been visiting the girl,” said Penstone Kilembe. “The adoption is now advanced — all the government is waiting for is Madonna to forward the petition of adoption formalities. Then Mercy will be able to leave the country for a new life.”
While Madonna’s friends say the happy news signals that the singer and Guy have put their marital woes behind them, the stress of another drawn-out adoption could cause more problems for them. And The Sun reports the adoption may not go smoothly, as Mercy’s relatives are against it.
“Twice I have told the adoption people that I do not want Mercy to go outside the country,” the child’s grandmother said. “But they keep on at us. Now they say that Mercy will be leaving us, but can return at age 18. Yet I might not be alive then.”
Dish on the flyMove over, Michael Phelps! Sean “Diddy” Combs is sure he could rack some gold medals of his own, if the Olympic committee would only add a new competition to the games. “Who could have sex the longest,” Diddy suggested to New York Magazine. “I think that's an event I can do well in.” He claimed that was just a joke before adding, “Even though I am serious.” … The high-pressure life of a teen queen is taking its toll on Miley Cyrus. According to the National Enquirer, the “Hannah Montana” star is sick and tired of all the autograph requests and phoned-in favors movie execs want from her, and she recently said she’s had enough. “Send them all a pre-printed picture of me and stamp my autograph on it…I’m done!” an insider overheard the 15-year-old yell. “I’m tired and I need some time to myself!” … Get ready for the return of the Batusi! Television’s Batman, Adam West, may be joining the league of soft-shoe wannabes on the next season of “Dancing With the Stars.” “Adam is in outstanding shape,” an insider told the New York Post. While a rep for the 79-year-old actor said, it’s “not definite yet,” he is said to be “one of the people they are seriously looking at.”
