Christie was under fire for the up and down relationship she had with her oldest daughter and the incident where he was injured at daycare.

Ta’Kari set up a GoFundMe for people to help cover the medical expenses and Christie allegedly didn’t help.


According to The Jasmine Brand , Ta’Kari is ready to speak out in her new book and latest interview.

Ta’Kari said about the book, “Originally, the whole goal and the intention in the very beginning had been like I said – my heart is pure – I had good intentions when writing the book. I wanted it to be something that my mother and me could have worked on together; you know they have publishing companies. It is a story of growth, of anything else – that is what it is.”

She believes her mother will try to block the book and didn’t want it published under her company.

Ta’Kari said, “I do not know what my mom thinks – that I want to say. I have asked her, “well do you think you did something wrong? Are you guilty of something? Do you feel like you want to say something? Is their something in you that makes you against the project? We both know the story, as soon as I said something about my story it is, “Oh that is extortion or that is slander.” I kind of have gotten accustomed to it.”

She has also stated that Christie hasn’t helped her much besides give her $100 from time to time. The book will be out soon and will reveal some things, but we will keep you posted on anything else that happens.
