Paramore attack parent profiting from band’s fame

Hayley Williams warns fans about ex-stepdad

Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams has spoken out about her ex-stepfather selling stuff from when she was a kid online.

The singer says that he is insane and told fans his eBay membership number – although it seems he has cancelled it now.

Williams said: “I saw that post someone made about the ‘handwritten book’ on eBay. Yes, it’s mine. Hahah. I don’t remember being a sad child but I definitely loved horror films at a really young age. I guess that was reflected in this particular assignment.”

The item he was selling, some of her old schoolwork, now seems to have been removed from the site.

Williams continued on the band’s blog: “Anyway, that’s not exactly what I’m posting about. I’m actually posting about the seller of this item. It happens to be my ex-stepfather. who is… well… insane, hence the reason he is my EX-stepfather.”

Williams said although she found it amusing, she was angry enough to think about posting his real name.

She said: “So, while I can laugh at the fact that a bit of my past has surfaced, I have to admit I felt like throwin’ shit when I saw the username. To be honest, I’d love to post his full name. Where he works. Possibly a phone number??? Then all of you could show him what it feels like when your personal life is out there for everyone to put their hands on.”

The singer then joked at the end of the post: “Fortunately for him… living with him for seven years wasn’t quite enough to make me turn out just like him… or was it? Don’t buy it. I’m gonna buy it. Hahaha.”
