Gabby’s Family Reportedly Fighting Over Her Millions Already
The parents of Olympic champion Gabby Douglas are now in the middle of the battle of a lifetime over Gabby’s endorsement deals. Of course the National Enquirier is saying this, so you have to take it with a grain of salt. But it’s not hard to imagine that there would be fighting over money after your child makes this kind of loot.
Insiders have allegedly told the Enquirer that Gabby stands to earn $100 million in her lifetime as a result of her performance at this year’s Olympic games. Both of Gabby’s parents, Timothy Douglas and Natalie Hawkins, are apparently debating over how this money should be split between the two.
According to Natalie, Timothy rarely paid child support, but from what we understand, it’s very difficult for a military man to avoid paying child support to his family.
Sources are saying that “both sides of Gabby’s family are jockeying to be in good standing with the goose that laid the golden egg. Meanwhile, poor Gabby is caught in the middle.”
Gabby’s grandmother, May Douglas, told the Enquirer: “We don’t know how many tickets were given, and how they were given, we only know they were not given to us.”
May is speaking in reference to the fact that Gabby’s father says that he was not invited to see Gabby perform at the Olympic games.
According to one source, it appears that Timothy and his family feel that Natalie cut them out of the process when they wanted to see Gabby perform:
“Timothy and his family suspect Natalie had everything to do with them not being able to gain access to Gabby’s competitions, and they’re furious about being cut out!”
There are mixed assessments of the depth of the role that Timothy played in his daughter’s life. It also appears that this drama is far from over. All it takes to ruin a lot of relationships is a little bit of money. We hope they can see the forest from the trees and do what’s right for Gabby.
