The mother of “Toddlers & Tiaras” star Maddy Verst, who dressed her up as Dolly Parton, complete with a padded bra and sculpting underwear, faces losing custody of her daughter.

The father of the child, Bill Verst, claims that his young daughter is being sexually exploited by her mother for allowing her to dress so provocatively and he has asked a Kentucky court to grant him sole custody of his daughter, who is now 6.

During a court proceeding Saturday, a judge threw reporters out of the courtroom, closed the hearing and placed a gag order on mother Lindsay Jackson. The judge also imposed a ban on any pageant activity for Maddy or her mother for the duration of the trial.

A court-appointed psychologist has sided with Maddy’s father, condemning the Parton costume and recommending that a judge make Verst the girl’s sole custodial parent.

Jackson dressed her daughter herself in the Dolly Parton costume, telling the TLC show’s cameras, “When she wears the fake boobs and the fake butt, it’s just like an added extra bonus and it’s really funny when she comes out on stage and everybody thinks it’s hysterical.”

Is this another case of a mother going too far in her pursuit to elevate her daughter to fame?
