[Blind Gossip] This famous American politician used to have a good relationship with his son. The son was happy to support Dad’s political career, and was a prominent figure on Dad’s campaign trail a few years ago.
That’s all changed… but they are trying to keep their estrangement a secret!
He got so mad at his dad over [a political decision] that he stopped speaking to him. The crazy thing is that even though they don’t talk to each other, [Dad] still has to pay for [Son’s] school and his life. He can’t cut him off financially because the press would eat him alive and it would be politically disastrous for him. He has to keep up this farce about his family being close because he seriously believes he can become President someday.
It is purely coincidental that we are running this blind item on Groundhog Day.
