salad burgers with our moms. Sometimes life gets messy and the relationships we hold dearest get strained the most. These celebs get real about their problems dealing with the women who gave them life.
Richie, raised by her adoptive father Lionel Richie, does know her biological mother, but does not have any kind of relationship with her. When she announced her first pregnancy in 2007, however, she reunited with her biological parents. "When I found out that I was pregnant, there was just something inside of me that felt a responsibility to mend any issues that I've had with my parents in the past, because listen, I have put them through a lot," she told Access Hollywood.
Tension stirred in 2014 when Miranda Kerr reportedly told her mother to stop interfering with the raising of her now five-year-old son Flynn, with ex-husband Orlando Bloom. Miranda's mother, Therese Kerr, and father John Kerr, aired their dirty laundry publicly on Australian TV, begging Miranda to heal the rift, to which she responded, "My dad and my brother work for me, and my mum has her own organic line now, and I think the media spun that on them—they weren't really trying to do anything, they're just a little naive, unfortunately," she told another Australian TV show.
