She’s a mega-star who started young and seemed to not be affected by the child star curse. Seemed to be. But eventually, that sh-t will find you, even on a delay.
It’s the mother. Though the were previously thought to be harmless... the mother now appears to be going full Dina Lohan. The mother has been hitting her up for cash for a while now, the better part of a year. To support her own projects, resurrect her own failed dreams, and her new relationship -- so essentially she’s bankrolling her ma’s midlife crisis. The daughter can afford it, certainly, and if it was just the money, it wouldn’t be getting out, but now she’s being asked by her mother to leverage her own fame and influence for industry contacts and connections. Since she can’t get a meeting on her own, she’s been namechecking her daughter to get in the door, and when that doesn’t work, she’s been pressuring her daughter to step in on her behalf, jeopardising her daughter’s reputation. No matter how hot you are, you don’t want to be known as the girl with That Mother. It’s becoming a concern for the daughter’s management team, as they worry that her ma’s increasingly aggressive famewhoring will undo their own moves in advancing the young star’s career. As you can imagine, it’s a delicate, uncomfortable situation. She is loyal and protective to and of her family. But she cannot deny that her mother may be compromising her professionally and is torn about whether or not to indulge her mother’s demands or look out for herself instead. She’s stressed, and while that doesn’t excuse her mistakes, it does provide some insight about some of her behaviour.
By the way, her boyfriend has been very supportive through all of this, certainly her most reliable source of strength.
This is a spin-off from a small riddle in her shout-out section from yesterday, 3/12:
And for Veronique from your sister Justine -- Happy Birthday...with a blind? A young mega-star’s mother is turning into somewhat of a Dina Lohan, hitting her up not only for cash but for contacts. Mom has been begging her daughter to set up meetings for her -- industry connections to finance her upcoming projects. Her famous child is becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the struggle, especially since her management team has vehemently against it. Some of her handlers are worried mom’s issues might present challenges for her own career.
