A mother who dressed her daughter as Dolly Parton during a pageant featured on Toddlers & Tiaras could lose custody of the child.
During an episode of the controversial TLC show, Lindsay Jackson dressed her daughter Maddy in a padded bra, butt pads, a blond wig and a slinky gown. Now the girl’s father, Bill Verst, is fighting for full custody of the girl, claiming the mother sexually exploited the then 5-year-old girl.
A judge put a gag order on Lindsay and blocked her from entering Maddy in any pageants until the proceedings are over.
According to RadarOnline, Bill is a convicted felon, on probation for DUI. So who deciding is the better parent could get pretty messy.
This is just the latest in a series of controversies around child beauty pageants and Toddlers & Tiaras. Do you think children should not be exploited in shows like Toddlers & Tiaras and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo?
