Finding a decent manager in Hollywood isn’t easy. The challenge is finding someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf in LA. These celebrities thought it would be best to hire someone who knew them best, their parents! However, in some instances this didn’t turn out to be the best decision. Here’s a list of 7 celebrities who fired their parents.
1. Katherine Heigl and Nancy Heigl
Mother of actress Katherine Heigl, Nancy is perhaps even more infamous than her daughter. In her capacity as a celebrity family manager, the older Heigl attracted lots of negative attention by complaining in abusive language about every service she made use of. As one source noted, working with her was equivalent to being insulted and criticized on a daily basis. Time to take her off the payroll.
2. Lindsay Lohan and Dina Lohan
Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan had her mother as her manager since the start of her career, and the lady has made quite a few bucks off her daughter’s earnings by rendering this service. Unfortunately, Dina Lohan behaves more like a friend than a manager, taking Lindsay out to parties, even when the poor girl was in recovery. Talk of bad parenting and bad managing rolled into one. She’s been axed, but apparently Lindsay is having doubts about her subsequent manager, Evan Hainey, too, blaming him for her stalled career. She also fired her sobriety coach. Maybe that has more to do with her stalled career than her manager.
