TheBeast would not just talk of her family as being poor, but she’d talk of her Basketball mom lepoard shirt life as being this abusive and horrible place with parents who ignored her at best and beat her at worst. Now maybe there had been abuse. Maybe she was beat on a regular basis and forced to live outside when it rained. I just don’t have those answers. I can only speak for mine and the experiences I’ve heard and seen from others. I’ve formed my viewpoint on TheBeast in this regard because there’s usually a pattern with children who are victims of abusive homes. Now obviously there are exceptions and everything really depends on the kind of abuse and intensity and no one individual fits into the same demographic on “childhood abuse cases.” But TheBeast’s mannerisms and actions did not, in my opinion, point to a home life of parents who beat and starved her on a regular basis, as she claimed.
