Sounds like Rosie isn’t going to win ‘Mother of The Year’… EVER.
Chelsea, the 19-year old adopted daughter of Rosie O’Donnell, has spilled all in an interview with the Daily Mail. Chelsea believes that the estrangement is irreparable.
She cites a particular incident in May 2015 that caused Chelsea to leave home for good.
Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter is haunted by an episode with her ‘drunk’ mother during which the actress locked the teen in her bedroom, tried to pull off her clothes to see her tattoo, threatened to hit her with an empty wine bottle and told her she could ‘kill her’.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Chelsea O’Donnell says the May 2015 attack was the beginning of two years of ups and downs with her mother which has culminated in an estrangement she now feels is irreparable.
Chelsea also revealed that she and boyfriend Nick Alliegro, 31, secretly got married last July after she found out she was pregnant.
But the newlyweds suffered a devastating blow weeks later when Chelsea had a miscarriage.
‘I told Rosie about the miscarriage but she never seemed to care or even asked any questions, like it didn’t matter to her,’ Nick told DailyMail.com.
Chelsea, who was adopted by O’Donnell when she was a baby, says problems with her mother began shortly before her 18th birthday in August 2015. Three months earlier, she had the word ‘Breathe’ tattooed on her side. O’Donnell was incensed…
…‘She called me into her room and asked me about the tattoo. I denied it.
‘She asked me to take off my clothes – she didn’t know where it was – to show her and I refused.
‘She picked up a wine bottle and started chasing me, trying to take off my clothes.
‘She told me if I didn’t show her, if I tried to leave, that she would hit me with the wine bottle, call the police and tell them that I had attacked her.
‘She was holding it above her head and coming after me in her room. She kept trying to run after me and saying that if she really wanted to she could kill me, she’s that strong.
Chelsea said that the wine bottle was in O’Donnell’s room ‘because she was drinking as she did frequently’.
The TV star, 55, didn’t hit her but ‘she came really close,’ Chelsea said. The teen didn’t go to the hospital with injuries nor did she contact the police.
‘I felt it was her word against mine and why wouldn’t they believe her over me?’ Chelsea said.
‘I didn’t go to the police because of who she is. She would have tried to say I was crazy and they just wouldn’t believe me.’
Chelsea’s younger brother and sister, Blake and Vivienne, were next door while it was going on. ‘They were in their rooms but they heard it,’ she said…
…‘She does things that are going to make her look good. She lied about kicking me out by saying that I’m missing and making everyone all worried,’ Chelsea said.
‘She tries to make people think I’m just crazy and she’s this great mother that’s trying to save her daughter when none of that’s really true.
‘I feel like she’s been very dishonest and done things that have really hurt me and my life. I want to clear things up and get the truth out.’
Chelsea referred to the August 2015 incident which became a national news story and put her at the center of a police rescue operation.
She has long maintained that – contrary to reports she ran away from home and was in danger – O’Donnell kicked her out of the family home in Nyack, New York and knew where she was the entire time.
Watch Chelsea and her husband, Nick Allegro discuss the rocky relationship with Rosie:
Nick encouraged Chelsea to attempt to reconcile with Rosie so she could have her family in her life.
She did try.
But she kept the marriage quiet.
When she went to the hospital last summer, it was reported that she had overdosed, in actuality, she had lost her baby.
After being devastated by having a miscarriage, she was plagued with headaches and diagnosed with a brain lesion.
It was because she had patched things up with Rosie that the lesion was caught — Rosie had insisted on a second opinion and assisted with the medical costs, but there were strings attached.
Chelsea said: ‘In September, I had MRIs and nothing came up in those tests. My headaches kept getting worse and I didn’t know what was wrong.
‘Rosie had me get a different brain scan at a hospital in Connecticut in January. That’s when they found a lesion on my brain which they are now trying to fix.
‘I take medication that they think might fix it but [the doctors] aren’t sure.’
Nick said that O’Donnell blamed him for missing Chelsea’s illness.
She was cursing me out, saying that I was a piece of s*** because I didn’t see what was going on with Chelsea.’
The couple said they were grateful that O’Donnell stepped in to help with medical expenses – but even these came with a caveat.
‘I wanted Chelsea to get the best medical care and Rosie refused to pay for it if we didn’t agree to get a divorce,’ Nick said.
‘As much as it killed me, we had to lie to her and convince her we would get a divorce so Rosie would continue to pay for Chelsea’s medical expenses so we could figure out what is wrong with her.
‘We told her that we were getting a divorce just so she would help with her medical.’
The relationship with O’Donnell broke down in January.
‘It was because of how she was treating Nick, being really cruel and blaming him for things that were not his fault,’ Chelsea said.
