Days after Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter called her a pot-smoking phony, Rosie took to Twitter with a cryptic quote:
“I will grow, I will grow, I will grow. I will grow without you. I will feel the sun on my face and I will thrive.”
She also posted a picture of her kids playing in her home’s arts and crafts room.
Her adopted daughter, Chelsea O’Donnell, 18, who now lives with her birth mother was considered a runaway briefly this summer–but she revealed that she actually kicked out of the house by the famous comedian when she turned 18.
“Rosie said that I was almost 18, and she got all this crap from work, and she didn’t want to have to deal with that at home too,” Chelsea explained.
She went on to tell the press that Rosie was, basically, a horrible person behind the scenes.
“I find her not genuine a lot of the time,” Chelsea said. “When we’d go out, she was a completely different person in public than at home and I had a hard time with that. It’s like two different people.”
“She has this public persona; she will put this big smile on her face and try to be funny. She would always go up to people and want to hold their babies in public. She had this happy, friendly side to her.”
“Whereas when we were home, even if it was on the same day, she would either just be in her room, not engaging with us, or watching documentaries. And if we didn’t want to do what she wanted to do, it would cause a big issue.”
“She would drink beer when we were growing up but after her heart attack she couldn’t. Now I think she drinks wine. I mean, she smokes weed – not around us – but the whole house smells like it.”
Rosie’s spokesperson simply said, in a statement to Us Magazine, that the situation is “heartbreaking on every level.”
