Gloria Estefan’s daughter recalls her mother’s terrible reaction to her coming out
On the latest episode of Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk: The Estefans, Gloria Estefan‘s queer daughter, Emily, did not hold back when talking about coming out to her family and her mother’s negative response.
Gloria, of course, is known for being a longtime LGBTQ ally who has often credited gay clubs and DJs for helping to bring her music into the mainstream early in her career.
But when her own daughter said she was in love with another woman, the singer didn’t take the news well.
Recalled Emily, “I was like, ‘Hey, I’m in love with this girl.’ The first thing you said was, ‘If you tell your grandma and she dies, her blood is on your hands.’ I just wasn’t ready for that.”
