Drama, drama, drama.
Papa, don't reach!
Between her BRILLIANT acting and her charming talk show appearances (gurl can rap!), Millie Bobby Brown is on her way to becoming a huge star.
That is if her father doesn't mess all that up…
Robert Brown is taking advantage of his daughter's newfound popularity by making some crazy demands of potential new representation!
According to the highly credible Hollywood Reporter, sources at FIVE separate Hollywood agencies have revealed Papa's unprecedented ask — $100,000 cash up front!
Generally, agents get you jobs and for that service they get 10% of your pay. Though agencies have been known to occasionally offer to take a smaller commission in order to attract hot new talents, NO ONE pays performers — or their pops — huge cash signing bonuses.
A rep for the Brown family confirmed the request but said it was "ill advice from someone outside the industry that was said in jest."
Robert is said to have close ties to several sports agents in the U.K.; apparently this is a more common practice there. We also hear Millie's manager, Melanie Greene, had no idea about the move.
We just hope this Papa learns from his mistake. We'd hate for Eleven to become another Thora Birch…
