Jackie Christie Speaks Out After Being Scorched On Twitter For Not Paying Grandson’s Medical Bills
Basketball Wives star Jackie Christie and her estranged daughter, TaKari Lee, are in a full-out war all over Jackie’s ill grandson, Jaxson.
Last month, a friend of the family set up a GoFundMe page in efforts to raise money for Jaxson, who, according to the site, was “badly burned on his head, neck, and chest while being cared for at a local daycare earlier this week.”
The description claims that, “Due to the extent of his injuries he has to go at least once a week to Harborview M.C. to meet with the children’s burn unit. His mother cannot go to work and doesn’t have enough vacation time to cover the extended leave she will need to provide around the clock care for Jaxson.”
Fans recently got wind of the money-raising efforts and slammed Jackie and her husband, Doug Christie, for not helping out with medical expenses. After being berated on Twitter, the reality star and a woman seemingly defending her daughter got into a heated exchange.
Based on the Twitter conversation, it appears as though Jackie is taking legal action. “Extortionist tweeters add the hash tag #blamejackie to your thousands of hate tweets k so o can get it trending #FBI,” she wrote.
In response, a woman that goes by the name of Christina, tweeted, “@JackieChristie but we do see you are rattled cuz you are turning to the law lol!!! Check on your grandchild’s health!!”
It’s unclear why Jackie and her daughter are estranged, but TaKari reportedly claims it’s because she’s “darker skinned and heavier” than Jackie’s other daughter, Chantel.
