Rosie O'Donnell Accused of Abuse By Estranged Daughter

by at .

Back in August of 2015, Rosie O'Donnell's daughter Chelsea went missing.

The TV personality publicly asked for help in locating the teen, but it was later revealed that Chelsea, who is adopted, had willingly left O'Donnell's home in order to live with her biological mother.

Now 19, Chelsea Belle O'Donnell is speaking out for the first time about like with Rosie - and her comments aren't doing any wonders for the former View host's reputation.

In a newly-released interview with the Daily Mail, Chelsea paints a harrowing picture of her childhood, claiming that O'Donnell was frequently drunk and often engaged in verbal abuse.

In the excerpt that seems to be gaining the most traction on social media, Chelsea reveals that Rosie once threatened to hit her with a wine bottle:

“A couple of weeks prior, I had gotten a tattoo," she tells the tabloid.

"[Rosie] had spyware on my phone so she could see pretty much everything I did. She called me into her room and asked me about the tattoo. I denied it. She asked me to take off my clothes — she didn’t know where [the tattoo] was — to show her and I refused.”

Chelsea says Rosie became increasingly angry and eventually chased her through the house:

“She picked up a wine bottle and started chasing me, trying to take off my clothes," Chelsea claims.

"She told me if I didn’t show her, if I tried to leave, that she would hit me with the wine bottle."

The teen goes on to say that such incidents were not unusual in the O'Donnell household:

“Since I was 12, Rosie has been verbally abusive and that was something I didn’t like, making me feel that there was something wrong with me,” Chelsea alleges.

She claims she thought about reporting her adoptive mother to the police, but didn't because of Rosie's celebrity status:

"I didn’t go to the police because of who she is. She would have tried to say I was crazy and they just wouldn’t believe me. I felt it was her word against mine and why wouldn’t they believe her over me?”

As for Rosie's claim that her daughter went missing in 2015, Chelsea says that's completely bogus, and that O'Donnell had in fact kicked her out:

“She knew,” Chelsea tells the Mail.

“She was talking to me when I was down [in New Jersey]. She had called the person I was with too. The day after she had kicked me out, she had gotten in contact with that person.

As he doesn't seem to have much else on his plate, you can expect Donald Trump to tweet about the O'Donnell situation in the next hour or so.
