Here’s a list of celebrities who have had public beefs with their parents.
Brandy Norwood and Sonja Norwood
Being a teenager is a very difficult time in your life, but the experience is probably even more intense when you’re famous. Award winning singer and actress, Brandy, charmed her way into our hearts, acting in multiple mediums. There was a time when she was highly marketable. Not wanting her daughter to be taken advantage of, Sonja became her manager, and this was a source of tension between the two.
In a 2002 interview in Oprah’s O magazine, Brandy, who was dealing with wanting to be rebellious and a people-pleaser would clash with her mom-ager because she felt like her mother occasionally saw her as just a commodity.
