Daughter's Fairy Tale Wedding

Brat and Jessica had a fairy tale wedding on a reality show named Brat Loves Judy

Brat revealed that Jessica wanted a fairy tale wedding, so they looked for castles and carriages for months. 

They did all that in nine days. 

They also talked about their wedding dress and appreciated the designer as their dresses matched their personality. 

Brat was born and raised in a very conservative family and society. 

She broke all the rules, and now she is married to the love of her life. 

She said that she felt like she could conquer anything. 

She said that her partner motivates her to do better and is blessed to have her as she truly understands and cares about her. 

Brat Was Scared Of Coming Out

Brat gave an interview with Tamron Hall Show where she talked about her being lesbian. 

Brat hid her sexuality for a long time. She became very popular because of her music, and although she has been in the limelight for so long, she never talked about her relationship.

She kept her personal life very private, and because of that, no one knew about her being lesbian until she came out herself.

Brat came out as lesbian when she was 45 years old, and she was really nervous giving this interview as it was her first time speaking about herself after coming out. 

She had never talked about this stuff before, and when she heard the intro of the interview, she got nervous, realizing that she was about to speak about something that she kept secret for so many years. 

Brat opened up that she grew up in a religious family. Her grandmother was very religious, and because of that, her whole family kept faith in god. 

She used to visit church daily, where they had to take bible classes, prayer meetings, choir, and many other things. 

She was raised very strictly as she was not allowed to wear short skirts, use makeup, heels, or cut hair. 

Coming from such a generation, she knew that it wouldn’t be good for her if she told the world that she was lesbian. 

Back then, it was very different as people were disgusted by gay and lesbian people, and she knew that if she came out, she would have to face the judgment and everything, so she decided not to tell the truth. 

She was living happily, and she didn’t want to destroy it, so she kept it secret. 

She was scared because she knew the consequences. But now the world has evolved so much, and it’s not anything like the past, she decided to come out.


David was 52 years old at the time of his death.

But they are not giving up.
