According to a new report, Emily and her in-laws are at war, as she plans to move to LA with Ricki for the sake of her career. Read on for all the details.
Emily Maynard is currently engaged in a bitter war with her in-laws, as a new report suggests that she is planning to move to LA to pursue a career in showbiz, and she is taking her daughter Ricki Hendrick with her. And the parents of Emily’s late fiance Ricky Hendrick are not happy about it, as they feel Emily is “putting her own thirst for fame” ahead of Ricki’s well being.
Seven-year-old Ricki’s grandparents Rick and Linda Hendrick are horrified at the possibility that Emily might move their beloved granddaughter Ricki out of Charlotte N.C., to the bright lights of LA. Ricki’s father Ricky was killed in plane accident in 2004, and she is all they have left of him. A source tells Radar Online:
“Rick and Linda were horrified by the news that Emily wants to move to California. They can’t bear the thought of Ricki being that far away from them, she is the one thing that makes the pain of losing their son tolerable. They see so much of Ricky in their granddaughter, they love her to pieces and have become incredibly close to her — she keeps the memory of Ricky alive.”
“Both Rick and Linda are concerned that Emily is putting her own thirst for fame before the best interests of her daughter, and that as Ricki isn’t able to have her father in her life, it is even more important for her to be surrounded by close family, and that obviously wouldn’t be the case if she was moved from North Carolina to California.”
Ricki’s granddparents never wanted Emily to star in The Bachelorette in the first place, and they simply want Ricki to have a normal upbringing.
“Rick, Linda and Emily do not speak at all now, aside from having to make arrangements regarding Ricki. They are majorly feuding. It’s pretty much the general consensus back home that fame has drastically changed Emily, it’s gone to her head, and Rick and Linda are concerned over how that is affecting their granddaughter. Emily appears more concerned with making it big than being a mom.”
Yikes! Emily seems a totally and utterly devoted mom to us, but uprooting Ricki to LA would be a drastic change for such a young girl.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Emily more concerned about fame than her daughter?
