Tiffany Who Hate Their Parents
At the height of her fame, 80′s poptart Tiffany found herself fighting for control of her career and money against her own mother, Janie Williams. Williams divorced Tiffany’s father when Tiffany was very young, and Williams’ second marriage ended when teenaged Tiffany accused her stepfather of “peeping” at her. Tiffany was only 16 when her song “I Think We’re Alone Now” went to number one. Her mother, as legal guardian, regretted the deal she’d signed with Tiffany’s manager, which she felt exploited her daughter. On Mar. 8, 1988, Tiffany left home for a recording session and didn’t return. Tiffany’s mother filed a missing person report. She did not know that Tiffany was off doing some filing of her own — with Los Angeles Juvenile Court for legal emancipation. Williams refused to budge, and the suit was eventually dropped. Tiffany moved in with her grandmother.
