She may have one of the most famous last names in America, with an ex-President as an uncle and a Secretary of State as an aunt, but 18-year-old Macy Clinton is struggling to keep her head above water financially – so much so that she is actually on food stamps!
The teenager is the daughter of Bill’s hell raising brother Roger, who met her mother, Martha Spivey in 1990 and she was conceived after a brief romance.
DNA tests revealed Roger was Macy’s father when she was 6-years-old.
But Macy’s family connections and name don’t put food on the table, and Inside Edition reports that the pretty teenager is struggling to make ends meet.
“It’s hard because I’m a Clinton too, but I have to be on food stamps just to try to make it day by day,” Macy tells the news outlet.
Macy, who is a full-time cosmetology student and works part-time, used a government benefit card to get free food at her local grocery store, and claims her father, who she has only seen a few times in her life, has abandoned her.
“I just want my father to be there for me,” she says. “He wasn’t there for prom, middle school or high school…it was very depressing.”
Macy claims that her deadbeat dad, whose troubled past includes a 2001 drunk driving conviction and a 1995 cocaine conviction, promised to set up a $20,000 trust fund for college, but she has never received a dime.
In addition, Macy’s mom claims Roger owes $30,000 in back child support. “It makes me mad. It makes me hurt…She’s your child,” Martha says.
But despite living on food stamps Macy remains upbeat and vows to live up to her famous family name. “I refuse to lose everything,” she says. “I’m going to do it. It’s just a lot harder for me.”
