NEW YORK - Lynne Spears' book about parenting has been delayed indefinitely, her publisher said Wednesday.
Lindsey Nobles, a spokeswoman for Christian book publisher Thomas Nelson Inc., said Wednesday that the memoir by the mother of Britney Spears was put on hold last week. She declined to comment on whether the delay was connected to the revelation that Spears' 16-year-old daughter, Jamie Lynn, is pregnant.
"I can tell you that we are standing behind Lynne and supporting her decision to be with her family at this time," Nobles told The Associated Press.
"Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World" was initially scheduled for release May 11, Mother's Day. Spears, the mother of three children with ex-husband Jamie Spears, had been working with a Michigan-based freelancer since March on the memoir chronicling Spears' experiences raising a family in the public eye.
Jamie Lynn Spears, star of Nickelodeon's "Zoey 101" and sister of Britney, told OK! magazine in its new issue that she's expecting her first child and the father is boyfriend Casey Aldridge.
Nobles and representatives for Britney Spears said they did not know how Lynne Spears could be reached for comment about the status of her book.

The good news is Lynne was just named spokesperson for ‘We B Trailers!’ in Little Rock!
If Nickelodeon keeps her on that show I will be disappointed beyond words.
She probably has to rewrite a bit of her book after the recent news, or else add another chapter.
Is it really a “parenting book” ? That would be rich...
Maybe she could write a book for kids called “Bi-Curious George and the Curfew Clown Make Friends”.
She’ll probably be Time magazine’s Woman of the Year.
Have no idea why anyone would think she is a good role model for motherhood.
‘Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World” was initially scheduled for release May 11, Mother’s Day.’
My wife has a suggestion for a new title that would allow the scheduled release with minimum hassle.
‘Pop Culture Mom; A Real Story of Raising Your Grandchildren in a Tabloid World’.
(I married up, as you can tell)
You’d think so?
Parenting advice from Brit and Jamie’s parent....
I’d prefer driving lessons from Stevie Wonder or Rosie O Donnell’s book on dieting and class.
The really pathetic part is that Thomas Nelson Books was supposed to publish this trash. I would have thought that they’d be a little bit more discerning than to offer a contract to the mother of a human train wreck and what looks like to be a really serious human car accident
Nope, I hear ya tho.
Lynne Spears’ parenting book title “Don’t Make the Same Mistakes I Made. Dos and and Don’ts for stage parents....
I have heard that asked a few times since the announcement.
I am just going to forbid my kids from watching it.
Man, she was so cute — I was so hoping she received half an ounce of brains and wouldn’t go the same way as her sister.
Two words for Lynn Spears and her dysfunctional family.....
Nickelodeon firing her would be a dumb move, leaves them open to a HUGE lawsuit. Most likely she will get a very large payment from Nickelodeon in exchange for he agreement not to sue for wrongful termination. I’m not sure what California laws are on maternity leave, but I assume they are rather nice for expectant mothers compared to other states.
16 is the age of consent in many states. Plus he’s only 19, and it’s unusual for a 3 year age difference to be considered staturory rape
I said it before....
Her writing a parenting book is like me writing a book of housekeeping hints.
Ok, I have a few, but they are a bit unorthodox.
“How to Become a Grandmother in 17 Years”
“How to Gravy Train Off Your Junkie Daughter’s Career”
Just looking for the silver lining in this whole disturbing mess, but at least Jamie Lynne is not killing the child. It would have been very easy to get rid of this problem, at least she’s doing the right thing, not the easy thing.
Co-authored by Dina Lohan.
If nothing else, the girl has class and good taste. She was knocked up by a guy she met in Church! Praise the Lord!
That’s what I was thinking; this probably happens more often than is reported, but a quick application of the suck-o-matic keeps it all on the down-low.
I am honestly disappointed. It would have been the comedy hit of the winter season.
Oh darn. I was so looking forward to it.
I cannot believe they would have Spears mom write a book on parenting. A dysfunctional family. Britney is not my idea of a wonderful daughter and not the kind of a women I would like my son to bring home.
Don’t give these people any ideas...
Just because I oppose abortion doesnât mean I have to look on the bright side when a high-profile sixteen year old gets pregnant and sells her story to OK magazine. Jamie Lynn Spearsâs very young age and celebrity status will lead to imitators whose pregnancies will end in out-of-wedlock pregnancies AND abortions. In light of this, I find no consolation in the fact that JLS did not choose abortion.
Will this be the third grandchild in that family who has a mom who is not interested in being a MOM? These girls have been sexualized since childhood and being sexy seems to be the only skill their mother has taught them. Who needs instructions from this
“Grandmother?” There obviously hasn’t been any training on how to be a respectable, decent, honorable, caring, and nuturing woman who can raise a child in an environment of love.
I can see your lips are moving, but all I hear is "blah, blah, blah".
I disagree, age difference has everything to do with it. Would you charge a 17 year old with staruatory rape for having sex with a 16 year old?
***I cannot believe they would have Spears mom write a book on parenting.***
Maybe the Spears mom and the Lohan mom could collaborate.
That picture is the reason men fawn all over her for sure
In Oregon all sex under age 18 is ILLEGAL. Adults having sex with girls under 18 is statutory rape. Not sure about California, probably more liberal.
Some prosecutor could get real famous real fast. Might not be a bad idea as far as his political career goes.
So this is what Britney looks like when the makeup artists are not around and the photo is not airbrushed.
I may be wrong, but I sex most likely occurred in Louisiana, I think that’s where they met (at church no less). So they’d have to prove which state it occurred in on top of everything.
The one thing I think everyone is missing is the fact she could have “had it taken care of” but she didn’t. She did not have an abortion, but chose instead to keep it, despite the fact that this will damage her career IMMENSELY, and likely cost her millions of dollars. She was dumb, yes, but at least she has owned up to it. I suspect that a number of teen actresses, when confronted with this same situation, have chosen to kill the baby.
