I read that she did it herself, after she fired Paves/he left.Originally Posted by Nemeses;2571561;
Brooke Shields had an incredibly pushy and demanding stage mother and she turned out just fine. I think all this is a combination of the type of person the child star is, just how far the parents are willing to pimp out their kids (Shield's mom had no problem with underage nudity), and what the child-turned-adult star is willing to do to claim back his/her life.
From the quotes I read from Britney's mother when Brit-Brit was a teen star on the rise, she didn't sound that different from Dina Lohan. Anytime Britney was criticized, she was there to rationalize why it was OK that Britney was doing what she was doing. When she was criticized for her striptease act on MTV (what was she, 17 or 18 then?), her mother said that in Louisiana it was so hot that everyone ran around in itty bitty clothes.
Drew Barrymore's mother Jade basically used Drew as her human ticket to get into all the chic clubs and restaurants. Who lets a 10 year old party into the wee hours at Studio 54? I actually thought she was going to crash and burn, and am so pleasantly surprised at how level headed she (Drew) seems to be as a young woman.
