Brooke Shield's Mother Dead

Brooke Shield's mother and former manager Teri has died at the age of 79.

In detail, Teri Shields passed away in Manhattan, New York, on Wednesday after suffering a "long illness". According to various reports, the reason of her death is dementia.

It has been widely reported that Brooke Shields and her mother became estranged due to Teri's controlling ways to her daughter's career. Brooke wanted to take control of her own affairs.

It has to be mentioned that Teri has managed Brooke since she was 11 months old and controversially allowed her to be cast as a child prostitute in the 1978 film "Pretty Baby" ("Pretty Baby" is a period piece set in a New Orleans bordello and Brooke, aged 12 at the time, had a nude scene and lost her virginity in the film.)

According to the "New York Daily Times", Teri also arranged for a photographer to take nude pictures of Brooke when she was 10.

By the mid-Nineties Brooke had even come out and accused her mother, also a former model, of being an alcoholic.

Brooke revealed to the NY Times: "I grew up in an alcoholic household."

"I’m the caretaker who wants to make everything better, and you can just do that for so long, or so I’ve been told"
Brooke added.
