Including Justin Bieber And Selena Gomez: 7 Celebrity Parents Who Threw Shade At Their Famous Offspring
Parents. Who'd have them?
Families are difficult at the best of times - and having one member of the group who just so happens to be a globally recognisable name often means that things are a lot more tense at home than usual.
Justin Bieber’s mum, Pattie Mallette
Fans are convinced that Pattie has been making her true feelings on Justin’s engagement to Hailey Baldwin known through social-media. They’ve noted that she’s removed the bio from her Twitter that used to read: "Yes, Justin Bieber is my son. I have many other great qualities besides being his mom haha! No really. #LoveWins #LOVEARMY."
Not to mention the fact that she’s liked a super shady tweet about people who rush into marriage too quickly.
Selena Gomez’s mum, Mandy Teefey
It’s no secret that Selena’s mum wasn’t the number one Jelena shipper in the world, having thrown a bit of shade at her daughter in an interview with GossipCon: “She is 25 years old and knows what is at stake with her health. I do not control her the way it has been portrayed. Selena is an adult and can make her own choices,” she said.
Oh, and let’s not forget the time she publicly admonished her about working with Woody Allen.
Ariel Winter’s mum, Crystal Workman
Back in October 2012, a then fourteen-year-old Ariel filed a restraining order against her mum citing physical and verbal abuse. Fast forward to 2017 and Crystal made some rude comments about how she wished her daughter would “dress with class” for the paparazzi.
Beyonce’s dad, Matthew Knowles
Beyonce has had a notoriously difficult relationship with father and former manager, Matthew Knowles. He came in for some critcism when he suggested that part of Bey’s success could be put down to her being “light-skinned,” although many pointed out that he was making a wider remark about race in the music industry.
The Kardashian-Jenner’s dad, Caitlyn Jenner
When Khloe told the Howard Stern Show that she felt “betrayed” about certain “business people” learning of Caitlyn’s transition before she did, the 68-year-old responded on KUWTK: “She can tell me to f*** off all she wants. I don't have a relationship with her. I'm done."
Oliver and Kate Hudson’s dad, Bill Hudson
After Oliver Hudson posted a message on Father’s Day reading: "Happy abandonment day," Bill told the Daily Mail that he was disowning his children: “I would ask them to stop using the Hudson name. They are no longer a part of my life.
“Oliver’s Instagram post was a malicious, vicious, premeditated attack. He is dead to me now. As is Kate. I am mourning their loss even though they are still walking this earth."
Meghan Markle’s dad, Thomas Markle
While he hasn’t thrown any direct shade at his daughter, his comments to the press about Meghan not having a genuine smile haven’t gone down massively well online: “I think she is terrified,” he told The Sun.
“I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile. I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now. This one isn’t even a stage smile ― this is a pained smile.”
Crikey. It turns out families are exactly the same in every walk of life.
