Whether it is the overload of estrogen causing emotional chaos, or a case of unhealthy competition, mother-daughter relationships can be especially contentious. There have been countless stories in the media involving stars that claim their mothers betrayed them by pilfering their riches, or selling intimate stories to the tabloids.
Other feuds stem from alleged childhood mistreatment and neglect, like the estrangement of actress Drew Barrymore and her mother Jaid. Drew famously won legal emancipation from her parents at age 15. In the February 2014 issue of ‘Marie Claire’, Drew reveled that she still has no communication with her mother. The 1978 publication of the book ‘Mommie Dearest’, written by film star Joan Crawford’s adopted daughter Christina, was one of the earliest books of its kind. In it, Christina depicted her life with the Hollywood icon, which she described as an alcoholic that was promiscuous, controlling and violent. Though Joan disputed her daughter’s allegations before the book was published, the tell-all became a best seller and was later adapted into a film. Not to be outdone, even in death, Joan reportedly cut her daughter out of her will. Today, Hollywood’s mother-daughter feuds are also played out in the media using reality television, radio, blogs, tabloids, magazines and social media. This type of public interplay no doubt only adds to the conflict by creating even more bitterness, discouraging a quick reconciliation. Here is a look at other famous mother-daughter feuds:
