Problems with the mother
In an interview with People, the 29-year-old opened up about her childhood. McCurdy had always struggled with anorexia, which she claimed was brought on by her mother Debbie. Debbie passed away in 2013 after a long battle with cancer. McCurdy said her earliest childhood memories were of heaviness and chaos. Her mother’s emotions were so erratic and she felt like she was always walking a tightrope every day. There were mood swings every day.
After his brief stint in Hollywood, he left it and took on his own personal projects. He just finished a one-woman comedy tour titled “I’m glad my mom died.” On its website, it mentions that it is also occupied with a memory of the same name.
He went on to say that the reason he got into show business was because of his mother. Her mother always dreamed of becoming a famous actress and became obsessed with making her a star. He felt that his job was to keep the peace and make his mother happy. Her mother bleached her hair and bleached her teeth before Jennette was even a preteen. Then she started counting calories and that led to anorexia.
These were just a few of the many traumatic incidents with his mother. But in a 2019 interview with The Huffington Post, she said she doesn’t blame her mother. His mother had suffered from cancer since 1995 and was in the hospital as a teenager for anorexia. Jennette was convinced that her mother never got over her eating disorder.
