Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter has broken her silence on the pair’s troubled relationship — and it’s not particularly flattering to the star.
Chelsea O’Donnell told the Daily Mail that despite claims she had run away, Rosie actually kicked her out of the house — and threw her out a second time after the police brought her home.
“She told me to leave and take my dog,” Chelsea said. “Rosie knew I was planning to leave, that’s why I think she kicked me out. She asked me to talk about what was going on and I didn’t want to. So she asked for my phone and my computer. This was hours before she told me to leave. I gave them to her. A few hours later, she told me to leave. I wasn’t planning to go until I turned 18 on the 24th.
“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.”
After the police found her at the home of her much older boyfriend, they returned her to the O’Donnell family home in Nyack, New York — only to have her mom turn around and kick her right back out again.
“She had two of my bags packed with clothes. Literally ten minutes after the police had dropped me off at the house, I got in a car and went to a friend’s house.”
She also painted Rosie as an emotionally detached mother who would rather work on arts and crafts while stoned than spend time with her children.
“I mean, she smokes weed — not around us — but the whole house smells like it,” Chelsea revealed. “She has some speakers set up and she blasts Madonna, she’s obsessed with her. But she also likes to play Eminem and Chris Brown.
“She would watch documentaries and draw all day long, in her bedroom or in her arts and crafts house,” Chelsea said.
Rosie’s rep responded to Chelsea’s allegations, telling E! News the interview is “heartbreaking on every level.”
