American Idol winner Jordin Sparks might never tell her mom white lies… but she definitely wishes her mom might tell her a few.
Exhibit A: That time Jordin’s mom, Jodi Jackson, threw away Jordin’s favorite shirt in eighth grade just because she hated it! Jordin and her mom have a pretty blunt and straightforward relationship so there’s no such thing as beating around the bush with these two.
So how’d it happen? According to Jordin, she was going through a dark, rocker phase, and couldn’t be seen out without her trusty Kurt Cobain t-shirt. Unfortunately, all her mom wanted was to get rid of that old thing, so one day, while Jordin wasn’t home, that’s exactly what she did.
“I was looking through my drawers and I couldn’t find my shirt,” Jordin recalls with a laugh. “And I was like, ‘Mom, have you seen my shirt?’ And she goes, ‘I threw it away.’ I would’ve much rather her gone, ‘Oh, I have no idea where it is. You probably lost it.’”
“She was mad at me for a long time,” Jodi chimes in. “It still affects her to this day!”
