Maddy Jackson’s part in “Toddlers & Tiaras” isn’t putting a smile on everyone’s faces.

The girl’s mother, Lindsay Jackson, has been handed a gag order and told by a judge that she cannot put her daughter into any more child beauty pageants due to Lindsay’s child custody battle with her ex, Bill Verst.

Verst is seeking sole custody of Maddy, claiming that her participation in pageants and being forced to wear fake boobs and outlandish costumes is unhealthy for the girl.

According to RadarOnline.com, Verst is on probation for a DUI and is a convicted felon, in addition he has never had custody of their six-year-old daughter. Although Lindsay previously claimed that he has supported their daughter being in pageants, he is now hitting the courtroom to prevent her participation in the future.

Lindsay received criticism for once dressing her daughter up like Dolly Parton, complete with fake boobs and a fake butt for a pageant.

The next hearing in the case is set for August 31, and until then a judge ruled that Maddy isn’t allowed to participate in any child beauty pageants.
