“I love my Daughters, but I will not allow my children to disrespect me in my home. Contrary to what I have been accused of, I would never beat my children….”
He continued on, inferring that his children are spoiled and stated that they have an “inflated sense of entitlement.”
“Unfortunately, they have taken me, and the privileged life I have given them, completely for granted….Instead of being appreciative and realizing how fortunate they are, my children have an inflated sense of entitlement and expectation without having to work or earn their way.”
In closing he told TMZ, that not only was he a “hip” dad but he had references to prove it. According to him “everyone” who knows him knows he’s a great dad……Uhhhh sure.
“I am not an uptight Dad, I am as hip as they come but I will not tolerate being taken advantage of or disrespected, especially in my home…….”
“I’m asking everyone to let this one go… I’m only being a good parent. I’m a great father and everyone who knows me, knows this is true. “
Teddy, Teddy, Teddy. I was with you until you said you didn’t beat your daughter. I’m sorry, but that girl didn’t do this to her face herself.
I’m just saying….
