Carrie Prejean’s homophobia may have its origin in her parents’ divorce and protracted custody battle in which her mother accused her father of being gay. TMZ has the court records.
Carrie’s parents filed for divorce in 1988 and the divorce and custody fights went on for more than a decade — it was a divorce filled with homosexual allegations hurled by both sides. In one of the docs, Carrie’s dad describes a confrontation he had with her mom in 1996, in which he recounts an argument in a restaurant parking lot, where “Ms. Prejean accused me, in front of our daughter, of homosexuality.”
The papers also quote a court-appointed doctor who said “The mother questioned [within hearing of the girls] whether [her father] was a homosexual or had a homosexual roommate.” Carrie’s mom says the “gay” allegations went both ways. In court papers dated May 16, 2000, a report from the court-appointed counselor says “The mother also alleges the father told the girls their stepfather was gay, that all men with mustaches are gay.” The father’s response: “The father acknowledges talking with the girls about the stepfather’s brother being gay, not the stepfather.”
In another court document, Carrie’s older sister wrote that she and Carrie once saw their father’s roommate in bed with another man, saying, “I don’t think it’s right for my sister & I to have to live that way.”
Gays broke up her parents! I think this explains a lot.
