Was it inappropriate?
In a post seen on her Instagram, Avril disclosed that she had shared the picture of little Zahari as it ‘spoke to her’. The picture in question is that of the 4-year-old holding onto a portrait of his mother that was mounted on a wall.
“Both situations (Monica’s and Maribe’s) are so disheartening. I saw this picture and it spoke to me. Couldn’t and still can’t even begin to imagine what I’d do/feel if my boy had to go through this regardless of whether I was guilty of anything or innocent of everything or had to leave earth and leave my boy. I’d be a restless soul for all of eternity,” Avril explained.
However, her decision to post that photo was deemed inappropriate by some fans who felt that it was not fair to post Maribe’s son without her consent while she,Avril fiercely protects her son.
The reaction from fans comes a few days after Avril revealed to Parents Magazine why she is turning down deals and hiding her son’s face and full name from social media.
“I’ve been approached for endorsement deals and I’ve had to turn them all down. Mind you, it’s a lot of money. However, if I’m signing a contract, I’m signing as Avril not as Avril and M, unless the corporate is comfortable with my son’s identity remaining anonymous… I want M to have a simple life, without the pressure of being compared to or being set for unrealistic expectations because he is my son. When he is old enough and chooses the public light for himself, then that’s okay. Until then it’s a no for me,” She explained to the magazine.
