Ellie Goulding is making the news a lot recently, not just about her new album. But, also the revelation that she finds her mother threatening.

Speaking to the independent newspaper recently, Ellie claimed that she struggles to talk about her mum in public. Why? because the last time she did that, her mother got threatening and forceful against her. However, Ellie’s mum Tracey is hitting back at the claims.


Furthermore, Tracey, who is 56, said: “It’s very, very upsetting. I don’t know what to say. I am not that type of person. I really, really don’t know what she is referring to and where the word threatening has come from. I don’t know what she is talking about. I don’t think Ellie has ever spoken about me in the press so I don’t know what I could become threatening about.”

“I think it must have been twisted or taken out of context because I have not got a threatening bone in my body.”

“I put a brave face on, and I am smiling now, but quite frankly I am deeply hurt, my other children have said to me, ‘oh my god, what the hell’. It is not nice to see your family all over the papers.”

For many, it is no secret that the pair do not get on too well. So much so, the last time Ellie saw her mum was almost a year ago at her wedding to Caspar Jopling. The ‘Starry Eyed’ singer has also revealed that the problems between them are unfixable. Furthermore, they have been seeking support to help them get their relationship back on track.
