Rebecca Black has been forced to leave high school and have lessons at home after suffering bullying from her classmates.
According to ABC News, the singer, who became a worldwide star when her single ‘Friday’ became a viral hit, has revealed that her classmates would persistently sing the lyrics to ‘Friday’ to her whenever she walked by and even had the cheek to ask her what day it was.
She said of the ‘bullying’:
When I walk by they’ll start singing ‘Friday’ in a really nasally voice. Or, you know, they’ll be like, ‘Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?’
Black‘s mother has also said that home schooling will give her daughter more time to focus on her career and that the family have also hired a bodyguard to protect her safety.
The singer also said she had always wanted to famous, admitting, “I was one of those little girls who practiced signing autographs since I was five years old.”
