Allison Holker praises daughter Weslie for ‘using her voice’ after naysayer criticized her fashion

Published

on

Allison Holker couldn’t be more prouder of her 12-year-old daughter for standing up to social media trolls.

The Dancing With The Stars alum, 32, shared a clip of her first born, Weslie Fowler, who hit back at a naysayer who criticized her for dressing like a boy in her TikTok video. 

‘Patriarchy is dead,’ the pre-teen responded, in reference to the idea that men hold the power in society and women are largely excluded from it.

‘Just because I don’t wear dresses and bright pink doesn’t mean I’m dressing like a boy.’

‘This is my style and I necessarily wear comfy clothes and darker colors, and just because I dress like that, doesn’t mean I’m dressing like a boy,’ Weslie explained with the confidence of a mature adult.

‘And it doesn’t mean that boys or girls are defined to wear certain things because of their gender. It doesn’t mean anything. Just because you can’t open your eyes, doesn’t mean I’m about to change.’ 

The So You Think You Can Dance all-star applauded her daughter by sharing the clip with her 1.9 million Instagram followers, along with some encouraging words. 

‘Proud of my daughter for standing up for herself and using her voice,’ Allison captioned the video.

‘We need to stop trying to tear each other down … instead we should stand together understanding our uniqueness is beautiful! Love you.’ 

Mature: Weslie got straight to the point in a TikTock video that her mother shared on Instagram: Just because I don't wear dresses and bright pink doesn't mean I'm dressing like a boy,' she began

The response to the American dancer’s post in the comments section has been overwhelmingly positive.

One person wrote, ‘Atta girl,’ while a slew of other men and women just wrote ‘yes’ in solidarity with Weslie.

A particular lady couldn’t hold back her sheer emotion and wrote: ‘I feel like a proud mom and she’s not even mine… yes girl!’

And yet another supporter declared: ‘She’s gonna change the world.’

Katie Price has called Princess, 13, ‘the perfect duckling that has turned into a swan’ in a sweet tribute in celebration of her recent birthday.

In a new interview, the former glamour model, 41, defended calling her daughter ‘ugly’ as a child and branded her ‘a complete mini-me’.

The media personality also hinted the teen, who she shares with former husband Peter Andre, has a boyfriend, admitting: ‘I know more than I let on.’

In 2017, the reality star faced backlash for saying she and Princess agree her eldest daughter was ‘ugly’ in her younger years. 

Katie has stood by her comments as she insisted she’s ‘grown into herself’ and claimed ‘not many babies are beautiful.’

The mother-of-five said in this week’s OK! magazine: ‘I don’t regret saying it. Even Princess says it! She’s the perfect ugly duckling that has turned into a swan – I love that story, it’s so empowering.’ 

Katie, who also shares Harvey, 18, with his estranged father Dwight Yorke, Junior, 15, with singer Peter, 47, and Jett, six and Bunny, five, with ex-stripper Kieran Hayler, 33, later revealed Princess has ruled out plastic surgery in the future after witnessing ‘all the pain I’ve gone through’.

When asked whether she has a boyfriend, the TV star said: ‘What girl doesn’t at that age? It’s part of growing up. She doesn’t ask me for advice on boys, but I hear her on the phone to her mates. I know more than I let on, but that’s just part of being a mum.’

Elsewhere in the interview, the ex-Page 3 model revealed Princess’ famous dad – who Katie was married to from September 2005 until May 2009 – ‘wasn’t too pleased’ with her setting up an Instagram account for her recent birthday.

She told the publication: ‘Junior didn’t have Instagram until he was 14, but I explained that was a couple of years ago and I am looking after her account. Pete is alright about it now. We get on fine and we’re so proud of Princess and Junior.’

Taking to the social media platform shortly after confirming their romance, Katie shared a shot of herself locked in an affectionate embrace with the former Love Island star – her first boyfriend since moving on from ex fiancé Kris Boyson.

Captioning the image, in which they both address the camera, she wrote: ‘Best on earth.’

Ashley relocated from Los Angeles to London seven years ago after the Pussycat Dolls went on hiatus in 2010.  

She said in an interview with the Mail on Sunday’s YOU magazine: ‘If someone had told me 10 years ago that this would be my home and I’d be drinking builder’s tea and saying Brit things like loo and rubbish, I’d have been, like, “No way!”‘

The TV and radio personality has been focusing her professional efforts on her Heart FM gig after the Pussycat Dolls were forced to postpone their reunion tour until October due to coronavirus.

She has reportedly been playing the field of late, as reports have alleged that David Walliams has set his sights on a romance with the star. 

According to The Sun, the Britain’s Got Talent star, 48, is believed to have split from celebrity make-up artist, Lou Teasdale, earlier this year following a brief romance.

A source has claimed the comedian has since reached out to the presenter and hopes to date her once the coronavirus lockdown is lifted.

An insider told the publication: ‘David was really knocked after his painful split from Lara [Stone], but is very much looking for love now.’

Kasabian have confirmed that lead singer Tom Meighan has STEPPED DOWN from the band. 

In a statement released on Monday, the band wrote: ‘Tom Meighan is stepping down from Kasabian by mutual consent. 

‘Tom has struggled with personal issues that have affected his behaviour for quite some time and now wants to concentrate all his energies on getting his life back on track. We will not be commenting further.’

Shock: Kasabian confirmed on Monday that lead singer Tom Meighan has QUIT the band and claim 'personal issues have affected his behaviour for some time' (pictured in 2017)

39-year-old Tom’s departure was quickly trending on Twitter. 

Tom previously told Radio X he experienced a meltdown in 2016 after he split from long-term girlfriend Kim James and she moved out with their daughter Mimi Malone.

Referencing his local team Leicester City’s shock Premier League title win that same year, Tom said: ‘Basically my life changed. I’m by myself. Because I lost myself.

‘In every way 2016 was great for Serge, great for Leicester City, s*** for me. I had to sort my head out. My attitude. Stuff I was doing. People I was associating with. Not bad people.

Huge success: The band have been together since 1997 and are most famous for songs such as Fire, Processed Beat and Club Foot (pictured in 2018)

‘I was the one that was bad, I was in the haze. I was very unhappy, just down. You block it out by just carrying on. I was making myself ill, I ain’t gonna lie, my mind was jolted.’

He added that he wasn’t taking responsibility for what he was going through, calling the experience ‘horrendous.’ 

This year, Kasabian were due to play a massive homecoming concert at Leicester’s Victoria Park on June 20, but they had to cancel the event due to the coronavirus pandemic.

With their live plans halted, Tom had revealed that the band had been writing tracks for a seventh studio album – their first since 2017’s For Crying Out Loud – and that he’d been penning some ‘autobiographical’ solo songs in lockdown.

He recently told Sky News: ‘We’re going to try and make a new record as soon as we can but we can’t really do anything while we’re restricted. Serge has been writing songs for Kasabian so it’s all good.’

Discussing his own solo plans, Tom added: ‘I’m writing loads of music at the minute. We’ll see what happens. I’ve got a few cookies in the jar … and they’re not bad, you know.

‘It’s very autobiographical, like the story of my life. It’s kind of … heartbreaking. Well, not heartbreaking, just to the core, you know. Very real.’

The band have been together since 1997 and have earned huge success with songs such as Fire, Processed Beat and Club Foot. 

In 2018, band member Serge Pizzorno released his debut solo album under the name S.L.P. (Sergio Lorenzo Pizzorno). 

He told The Sun at the time that the band had no plans to go their separate ways.

He said: ‘I am in my band and I love my band. The best way to describe it is, it’s like another planet I can now visit whenever I want. It’s this planet that orbits and I can go there for a bit.’

Kasabian took a break following their 2017 For Crying Out Loud tour. 

Serge said: ‘When you get to six albums, you’ve got to keep it clever and make it interesting. Kasabian have had six albums — five No1 albums in a row.

‘We’ve headlined Glastonbury, Leicester Stadium, The O2 and got really big in Europe, Eastern Europe and South America.’
