One of the stars of the incredible and hugely popular Stranger Things is Millie Bobby Brown. Not only has she gained more fame, but she has also eclipsed her targets of fame. She made her debut in Eleven and has seen stocks rise since then. As a Gen-Z actress, she has utilized her popularity among the generation in the skin-care business. Rumors surfaced that Millie Bobby Brown parents abandoned her, and we want to clarify that. One thing we know about rumors is that if they get wings, they can reach a broader reach. So, are the allegations true, or is it just someone concorting rumors?
It may come to many as a surprise that Millie is only still a teenager despite the fame she has. However, we won’t be talking about her if not for the sacrifices Millie Bobby Brown parents made so that she could have the career she is having now. Despite the rumors about Millie’s parents, the fact remains that they did everything to make sure that she has the great career she was.
Who Are Millie Bobby Brown Parents?
Millie Bobby Brown was born to Robert and Kelly Brown. The couple noticed early that their daughter had excellent acting skills, even as a child. They had other kids, but while the other kids would sit with cartoons and the kids’ shows, Millie would rather watch musicals, and it was here she honed her performance as a young actress. Knowing that staying in England may not benefit Millie, Robert sold his properties and moved his family to Hollywood. But, it didn’t start to glitter when they got to Hollywood. Millie struggled to get a role as the competition was too much. It was so bad that the family got broke to continue living in Hollywood. Millie’s older sister left the family as she could not stand the poverty slowly creeping in. Unfortunately, they had to move back to the UK. Remember, they didn’t have a place, so they had to settle to live with Millie’s aunt. It was a rollercoaster for Millie, who had seen her share of rejections.
Millie Bobby Brown Landed Stranger Things Role
If there was something about Millie, it was her never-say-die attitude. Her parents encouraged her to keep going for it, which eventually paid off. She auditioned for a role on Stranger Things and was selected, and she had to fly down to the United States to feature in what would become a hit series.
An interesting incident happened when Millie’s father demanded money for any agency to sign her up. In a report by Hollywood Reporter, Robert offered her daughter to be signed for around $100,000. No one told Robert that the actors usually pay agents and not the other way round.
Millie Bobby Brown Parents Disciplined Her
Despite her fame, Millie’s parents were on the ground to ensure that Millie didn’t become a stray. The norm has been that many child actors become quite wayward, and some do not fulfill their potential. As a result, they fall off after a while. But Millie must be grateful that her parents were on the ground to help and chastise her where necessary. They ensured that she felt and behaved like a child while she was all famous.
Why Are Fans Saying Brown Parents Neglected Her?
A TikToker, Hunter Echo, posted videos of him saying that he groomed Millie. According to Hunter, Millie’s parents allowed her to live with him for eight months. For some fans, it was a no-no. They just couldn’t come to terms that Millie’s parents allowed her to stay with a 20-year-old. Although Millie’s reps have come out to debunk Hunter’s claim, citing that they were “irresponsible, offensive, and hateful,” Teen Vogue reports. Though, Millie and her parents have declined to reply to Hunter. Hunter has deleted the TikTok video and apologized for his comments. He said: “I’m not proud of it at all, or how I spoke. It sounded very immature, and looked horrible. I am sorry for doing that live stream. I should have ended it, but I chose not to. [It] looked horrible on my family, it looked horrible on me, it looked horrible on my friends.”
Today, thanks to Millie Bobby Brown parents, Millie is doing great, and with her insane acting talents, we are yet to see the best of her.
