The Net Worth of Maddie Briann Aldridge
As of early-2020, Maddie Briann Aldridge’s individual net worth is unknown, as she hasn’t started a career yet, so is presumably supported by her mother Jamie Lynn, whose net worth is estimated to be over $5 million thanks to working in Hollywood.
Her stepfather Jamie Watson is also an actor, and acting coach, and no doubt his wealth has helped the family as well.
Mother’s Early Career
Maddie Briann’s mother Jamie gained a lot of attention during her youth, being the younger sister of singer Britney Spears, who at the time was gaining worldwide attention for her music, and capitalized on the fame and attention that she got. While some thought that she would pursue a music career like her sister, she instead turned to an acting career.
She made her debut in the film “Crossroads” in 2002, following which she became a performer for the Nickelodeon comedy sketch series “All That”, which led to a much larger long-term contract with the company. In 2004, she signed a deal that would see her become the protagonist of a new original series – “Zoey 101” – with Lynn portraying the titular character. The show was a success, providing one of the highest ratings Nickelodeon ever achieved during the decade, and running for around four seasons until 2008, when Jamie announced that she was pregnant at 16 years of age.
Parents On and Off Relationship
Maddie’s father is Casey Aldridge who at the time of her mother’s pregnancy was just two years older than her at 18. Jamie took full responsibility for the pregnancy and Nickelodeon made a statement that they were supporting her decision, primarily looking out for her well-being in this period. However, “Zoey 101” quietly ended without any word from the network or its main star. This led a lot of people to believe that the show was canceled as the pregnancy was the exact opposite of what the character Zoey would do, as she was depicted as a good girl in the show.
This also led to a lot of criticism towards Jamie for supposedly setting a bad example; the media was not helping as they seem to glamorize her pregnancy and teenage pregnancy as a whole. Following Maddie’s birth, the couple moved to Liberty, Mississippi and became engaged. They bought a house and stayed together for a year before calling off the engagement, and year later Jamie moved out of the house. The couple attempted a reconciliation, however that was short-lived, ending in late-2010.
There was a lot of attention surrounding Maddie Briann’s mother during her early years, as the paparazzi followed her extensively trying to document her teenage motherhood, and even led to the Spears family filing a complaint against a paparazzo who was relentlessly stalking her. After the dust settled between her parents, she mainly lived a life away from the public. Her mother also lay low for a while, focused on raising her child.
In 2011 Jamie tried to enter the music industry, consulting with music producers in Nashville so that she could release a country album.
She gained a bit of success for her single “How Could I Want More” leading to the extended play (EP) “The Journey”, which reached fifth spot on the Heatseekers Albums Chart of Billboard. She then began a relationship with businessman Jamie Watson who is also the owner of the communications company Advanced Media Partners. They dated for two years before becoming engaged in 2013, and marrying a year later in New Orleans. The couple has a child together, Jamie’s second daughter and Maddie’s half-sibling – it isn’t known if she maintains a connection to her biological father.
Jamie Lynn’s Recent Projects
In 2019, Maddie’s mother started to make her comeback to acting, when the company Netflix announced that she would be cast as a series regular in “Sweet Magnolias”. Based on the Sherryl Woods novel of the same name, it tells the story of three friends from South Carolina who navigate life together. She will be playing the character Noreen Fitzgibbons, a nurse trying to rebuild her life.
Around the same time, she reconnected with Nickelodeon, and was cast in a new series as reported by “Teen Vogue”, reprising her “All That” character Thelma Stump, and joining cast members from both “All That” as well as her iconic show “Zoey 101”. Jamie is adamant that “Zoey 101” was not canceled because of her pregnancy. She has made online statements several times, claiming that the show’s contract had ended which is why no further seasons were made. The coincidence of her pregnancy, however, has led many to be unconvinced by her statements.
All of the songs on The Journey hold such a special place in my ❤ and were my way of sharing my truth with the world. Trust me, y'all are going to want to hear these. Listen to the Story Behind The Journey on @pandoramusic at https://t.co/loxt4T43h6 pic.twitter.com/18U6W4PYiL

It does seem that she’s maintained a good relationship with Nickelodeon.
Maddie Briann is still young and busy with school, being raised away from the spotlight. It is not known if she will follow the footsteps of her mother as she has not been exposed to the same fame Jamie has had in the past. There is also a possibility that she could follow her stepfather’s footsteps in business, or take another path entirely.
