The Masked Singer Season six winner Jewel, has recently made a shocking revelation about her past that has shaken her fans and the music industry. In a recent episode of the Verywell Mind Podcast with Amy Morin, Jewel opened up about her childhood, her abusive father, and her relationship with her mother, who was also her manager.

Jewel Reveals What Her Life Was Like At Home

Jewel’s bravery in sharing her story has inspired others to speak up about their own experiences and to demand change in the industry. Despite the abuses she faced, she has risen above them and used her platform to help others.

Jewel’s parents divorced when she was only eight years old, and she and her brothers went to live with their father. She revealed that her father was an alcoholic who physically abused her, but she only realized later in life that her mother was also abusive in her own way.

Jewel’s memoir, “Never Broken,” also sheds light on her childhood and her struggles with mental health. She explained how she grew up with no safe figure in her life, surrounded by predators and in constant fear.

Her experiences led her to create a non-profit foundation that focused on bettering youth mental health, called Inspiring Children, in the early 2000s. Now, she has launched her own mental health app, Innerworld, to help anyone struggling with mental health.

Her Mother Embezzled $100 Million of Her Money

Jewel shared how her mother, who was also her manager, took control of her finances and led her into debt, despite selling millions of albums. The revelation came as a shock to Jewel, who only realized her mother’s true nature in her 30s, after she had accumulated a debt of $3 million.

“My mom isn’t a villain, my dad isn’t a villain. People get some things right and people get some things wrong,” Jewel said.

Despite her success, Jewel’s personal life has been marked by struggles and challenges. Her openness about her experiences has made her a role model for many, and her work to improve mental health is a testament to her resilience and determination.
