After calling Jennette a “sly, evil… liar,” Debbie went on to write, “You look chubby too. Obviously you are eating your guilt. Thinking about you with his ding dong inside makes me nauseous. sick! I raised you better than this.”

Debbie asked where her ‘good little girl’ had gone and added: ‘Where has she gone and who is this monster that replaced her? You’re an ugly monster now. I told your brothers about you, and they all said they rejected you, just like me. We don’t want anything to do with you.”

“Grief for me towards my mother used to be very complicated,” the singer said on Good Morning America last month, explaining that writing the book played a huge part in her “healing” journey.

“I felt like she didn’t deserve my tears and my grief since she was abusive, but it simplified in a very relieving way and now I feel like I can just miss her,” she said.
