Kate Beckinsale Dragged for Asking Daughter If She's Doing Cocaine
Fans are not really here for Kate Beckinsale’s latest Instagram post. Beckinsale shared a candid text exchange between herself and her 20-year-old daughter, Lily Mo Sheen, whom she shares with her ex Michael Sheen.
In it, Kate candidly asks Lily if she's "doing a lot of cocaine."
"Um..? I'm doing 0 cocaine," Lily replied, calling her mother a lunatic. "I physically couldn't be doing less cocaine."
Kate then explains that she asked Lily the question because she "had a dream" she was and got "so mad."
Kate captioned it, "Worth checking in case had suddenly become soothsayer in sleep".
In another caption, since deleted, she vented about the reception the post got in the press: "Various tabloids have seized the word 'cocaine' in order to stir s**t and get everybody going. If you replaced my first text with 'Are you dating Trevor McDonald?' based on a dream, I don't think anyone would extrapolate that she was, or that I was, or that we both were."
While several fellow moms enjoyed the post, others were less excited. "Who the f**k has dreams like that" and "You have some random thoughts... and clearly looking for a hookup."
It’s not the first time Kate has gotten herself and daughter in hot water. In 2016, she revealed on Late Night With Seth Meyers that she got Lily in trouble at school by doodling on her paper.
"I was just doodling a penis and I didn't realize ... it was her homework," she shared. "So she gets in trouble for it. The teacher said, 'Lily, that's not appropriate.' And she goes, 'It was my mother.'"
