‘It doesn’t stop. So, both of my children, and Trey as well – Trey had stayed out of it a little more than Willow and Jaden – but even for him and all of them, from their different perspectives, they’ve had to acquire a certain level of maturity.
‘And that’s one of the downfalls of living in the spotlight as a child.’
