Bebe Rexha has defended her father in a since-deleted tweet, after she shared a screenshot of a message he sent her.
The singer shared the message on her Instagram Story in which her father wrote: “You better stop posting stupid pornography because you make me sick.”
“I can’t take this anymore. Embarrassed to go in public everywhere I can go. I’m very upset with you, I can’t believe it.”
Bebe jokingly captioned the message “My dad hates me”, but her followers did not seem to find it funny and slammed her father online.

After Bebe’s fans slated her father, she defended him in a since-deleted tweet and wrote: “My dad is not a bad guy. I should of never have posted that screenshot. Im (sic) disappointed in myself. I was being sarcastic.”
“I understand where he is coming as a father and that’s why the text was a bit harsh. I am upset that he still isn’t speaking to me, but he is still my father.”
The 29-year-old praised her father and added: “Don’t say mean things about my dad please he is an amazing father.”
While Bebe didn’t explain exactly what her father’s message was referring to, she recently responded to mixed reactions about her latest music video, as it was flagged as ‘sensitive’ on YouTube.
I am woman who is living unapologetically. I’m not gonna be made to feel bad about making ART. And yes art to me is my beautiful ass out, boys kissing boys, girls kissing girls, crosses on my body. IF A MALE RAPPER PUT OUT THAT VIDEO OUT IT WOULD BE FINE.
