[Blind Gossip] These parents have said that they don’t want their child/ren in the spotlight. If they were being truthful, they would say that they don’t want their child/ren in the spotlight… unless they receive a lot of MONEY for it!
They believe that a recent big payday for their family needs to be reallocated… in their favor. They think that their child/ren should receive more money than several other members of the family. They have gone to those family members and shown them their version of math to try to convince them that taking a pay cut is really in that family member’s own best interest (“If our child/ren appears, we’ll ALL make more money!”). When that doesn’t work, the parents argue with the reticent family member (“We’re only thinking about the good of the family! Why are YOU being so selfish?”)
Not surprisingly, each discussion has resulted in an fight and a rejection. As of right now, NONE of the other relatives are willing to cut their share to appease the parents, and the infighting continues.
[Optional] Should the other family members give up part of their share?
