Dad enrages ex-wife with ‘expensive’ gift for his daughter

A father is at odds with his ex-wife after buying their daughter a pair of expensive shoes. He went on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum to share what happened . The issue arose when the father sided with his daughter over his ex-wife and her new husband. “My daughter Rose lives part-time with me and part-time with her mother, Jean as we are separated. Jean is now married to Dan and stepmother to Meg,” the user explained. “Meg is very insecure and always comparing herself to Rose, which has been an issue pretty much since the start of Jean and Dan’s relationship” . Jean and Dan don’t like that Rose regularly spends a ton of money on clothing and makeup. “During lockdown, Rose started a small business online so she had something to do. She’s therefore made herself quite a bit of money,” he explained. Rose planned to buy the $118 shoes with the money she earned. “Jean and Dan immediately forbade her from buying them… so I ordered the shoes myself," the father explained. “Jean and Dan are spitting at me and say that I’m undermining their parenting, that I’ve escalated the issue and caused problems in their house” . Reddit users were on the father’s side
