Country music legend Loretta Lynn has cruelly turned her back on her ailing granddaughter, according to a new report in The National ENQUIRER
Loretta Lynn Jr. – named after the famed "Coal Miner's Daughter" and known as "Junior" – is the daughter of Loretta's eldest child Betty Sue Lynn, who passed away in 2013. Junior now suffers from dementia, multiple sclerosis and epileptic seizures, her son Zach Massey told The ENQUIRER in an exclusive interview.
Distraught Massey revealed that his mother was homeless after Loretta cut her off her financial support. He cobbled together enough money to check his mom into a $65-a-night motel in Waverly, Tenn., but after inadvertently mixing up her medications, Junior suffered an epileptic seizure and collapsed in the motel parking lot. Paramedics rushed her to a local hospital.
"They kicked my mother out with no place to go!" said Massey, a fast food restaurant manager. Junior was later transferred to another facility in Nashville.
The 83-year-old singer had been paying for Junior's care at a Tennessee nursing home claimed Massey.
He reached out to his great-grandmother for help, but she and her daughter Patsy Lynn, who manages Loretta's finances, said they weren't going to pay "any more bills for my mother," he explained.
"She even refused to help pay for diapers for my mom, who's incontinent!" Massey told The ENQUIRER about his aunt Patsy, who opened for her mother on stage in April 2012.
Murphy claimed, "What makes me mad is that Patsy and Loretta can pay for another family member's breast implants and another relative's sex reassignment surgery. But Loretta won't help pay for a safe environment for the granddaughter who shares her own name!" Patsy and her twin sister Peggy performed in August 2012 before their mother's performance.
"Patsy was very jealous of the money Loretta had been spending on my mom," Massey told The ENQUIRER. What do you think about the treatment Loretta Lynn's granddaughter has received? Sound off in comments below.
