Christopher Pearman, Raven's father and former manager, wrote on his Facebook page some thoughts about his daughter's comments this week, and dad didn't hold back at ALL!!!
Ch-ch-check out the open letter in its entirety (below):
To My Dear Friends,
There has been much talk today about my daughters comments on her show The View. People have been hitting me up all night questioning me about her remarks. Let me say this……I haven't managed Ravens career in over 10 years. This woman is grown, has her own management team, has her own opinions, right or wrong, and is responsible for her own words and actions. A woman wrote to me tonight and said she couldn't support my book because of the words of my daughter. What she fails to realize is that my book is about teaching your child to believe and achieve. Raven has achieved incredible success, and this cannot be denied!
Children grow up and become influenced by many things, situations and people. I certainly don't agree with what she said….but she is damn near thirty years old. She's a grown ass woman making grown ass mistakes. We all have been guilty of this.
I did my best as her father, mentor and career manager. I believe I did a Wonderful job. Aside from this inexcusable gaffe, her 29 years in the entertainment industry has been quite successful, for there have been only an Elite Few Child Stars to last this long and have little to no controversy. For this, I am Very Proud!
Raven is a really Beautiful, Sweethearted, Human Being.I should know. Her Mother and I Love her Very much and will always support her and have her back. Even if sometimes……….she says some dumb S#%T!
Hey, credit to Pearman, he told it like it was and he was pretty well-balanced in his assessment of Raven's recent TV career!
What do U think of dad calling out daughter publicly on Facebook?? Appropriate in this case, or should family issues always be left in private?
Did Raven's Dad Go Too Far With His Comments??
- Yes! Always keep it private within the family. (14%)
- No! She deserves to be called out, and maybe she will listen to him. (86%)
