Then I found out I was pregnant [by then- boyfriend Casey Aldridge]. But this was my situation, and I did the best I could.
But I was judged for something that probably most everyone does. I had to make a decision that I could sleep with every night. It was my choice to play them the way I played them.  I was already upset about having to tell my parents and Casey's parents.

The younger sister of recording artist Britney Spears, she is known for her role as Zoey Brooks on the Nickelodeon teen sitcom Zoey 101, on which she starred from 2005 to 2008.
Spears became the subject of significant media attention and controversy in 2007, when she announced she was pregnant at age 16, effectively sending her career into hiatus.
Controversy surfaced because Spears was two years below the California age of consent, raising questions about her and Aldridge's age difference, and whether Aldridge could or would be charged with statutory rape (although Spears was neither from California nor living there).
It was later confirmed that Aldridge was just under two years older than Spears, which meant that he could be charged only with a misdemeanor under California law, since the crime is only charged as a felony if the two people having sex are at least three years apart in age.
The film is the third and final installment of the Unstable Fables trilogy.
Nickelodeon issued a statement shortly after the announcement of her being pregnant at the age of 16 stating that the network respected Spears's decision to take responsibility and noting that its primary concern was for her well-being.
In August 2004, Spears signed a development deal with Nickelodeon in which she would star as the protagonist in her own scripted television series that would air on the network. Spears portrayed the role of Zoey Brooks and centered on Zoey and her friends who attend a fictional boarding school, Pacific Coast Academy (PCA).
Spears recorded the series theme song, titled "Follow Me", which was written by her sister Britney Spears.
Spears's performance received positive reviews from critics with many complimenting her comedic timing and being a highlight of the show.
