Uh oh! Bebe Rexha shared an angry text message from her father on February 25, and to say it was a little harsh would be, well, an understatement.
If you missed the since-deleted screenshot, the pop star‘s dad texted the “Meant to Be” singer to let her know how embarrassed he is of her racy photographs. In fact, he went as far as to say that he’s humiliated to go out in public.
After demanding that she stops posting risqué photos online, her dad said, “You make me sick I can’t take this anymore embarrassed to go in public.”
He also added, “I’m very upset with you I can’t believe it.”
Clearly upset by her father’s comments, Bebe reposted the text on her Instagram Stories, writing, “My dad hates me.”
NGL, we were pretty heartbroken by the whole thing, and of course, Bebe’s diehard fans came to her defense and slammed her father, which was something she never wanted to happen. In fact, the “I’m a Mess” songstress later insisted that she posted the text in a sarcastic way and that she didn’t intend to showcase her father in a negative light.
After deleting the post from her Instagram Stories, the singer tweeted, “Don’t say mean things about my dad please he is an amazing father.”
In a separate tweet, the 29-year-old added, “My dad is not a bad guy. I should of never have posted that screenshot. Im disappointed in myself. I was being sarcastic. I understand where he is coming as a father and that’s why the text was a bit harsh. I am upset that he still isn’t speaking to me, but he is still my father.”
Bebe has since deleted both tweets, but clearly, she was very upset about all the backlash aimed at her father. Still, his message seemed very harsh — especially since he has so much to be proud of. Now, after airing out their family drama so publicly, we just hope they work things out and are able to move past this.
