She claims Hill was upset because she was getting “attacked by the media” while trying to deal with issues in her relationship. “She was also going through her own shit. She had five kids with a man that—they didn’t really get to know each other, so they were always arguing, always fighting. So I didn’t really see much peace at all.”
She doesn’t fault her mother, but admits that she suffered longterm trauma. “I don’t think she realizes how much that shit affected me ’cause that’s all I know. All I know is physical.”
However, she said her mother is no longer like that. “My mom changed. She’s not like that anymore. I’m actually very proud of her. I’m very, very proud of her,” said Selah.
Her father’s absence made it even harder growing up. “I came to the conclusion of how much of my life I’ve fu**ed up and how much of me is fu**ed up simply because my dad just wasn’t around. And there’s just a void where there should be a person. And it’s honestly really hard.”
After her initial comments received widespread attention, Selah followed up with a clarification while calling out the media for highlighting only a portion of her two-hour livestream. “Why did y’all take the worst part of my video? Did you guys understand that I was tryna come from a place of healing?” she asked. “These motherfu**ers took the worst aspect of everything.”
She said that she deleted the video at the request of her father. “Don’t take it and vilify my mother. Don’t take it and vilify my father,” she added. “I have a lot of empathy for my parents.”
