Rumors have been swirling on the Internet that Flea, bassist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, is a less then stellar father to his daughter.
What apparently started said rumor was an interview Flea did with Key 103, a radio station out of Manchester, England. The host and Flea began talking about their children, and Flea mentioned how his daughter Sunny hit her head on a table and joked that he put her in the closet because she was crying. The joke escalated to rumor and the rumor populated the Internet.
With everyone looking for a reason to chastise celebrities for their child rearing abilities, maybe Flea should keep jokes about his fathering skills on the down low.
TMZ has the interview...
Is it bad to put your kids in the closet? I mean, that's what I do when I want to blog, my three year old loves to sit in the closet (yes, it's a joke people.) I can't believe how idiotic people are. Yes, it is stupid, but I don't even know how people could have taken him serously.
