Ronda Rousey is always in the headlines, whether it be mixed martial arts, professional wrestling, or Hollywood. Of late, however, her mother has been getting quite a bit of attention.
Rousey's mother, former Judo World Champion AnnMaria DeMars, was in the news this week following controversial statements regarding Rousey's coach, Edmond Taverdyan. DeMars ripped Taverdyan publicly, saying that he was a terrible coach, an that she'd run over him if it weren't illegal.
Rousey has also been in the middle of a controversy surrounding her personal life, as she's in a relationship with UFC fighter Travis Browne, who was accused of domestic abuse allegations by his estranged wife. Browne was cleared of any wrongdoing in an independent investigation headed by a former FBI agent.
DeMars had posted several words of advice, using the hashtag #AdviceFromMom, which appeared to relate to Rousey's situation. This led to fans and media suspecting that DeMars was speaking out against Rousey's new boyfriend.
DeMars followed up on Twitter by saying that she had four daughters, and not every post she makes applies to Ronda. You can see several of the tweets below. DeMars is also heavily involved in the promotion for Rousey's next fight, as she's featured in the UFC 193 trailer.
With Rousey's upcoming fight about a month away, do you think this will be a major distraction? Let us know in the comment section below.
First sign what you are doing is wrong: If you get mad when anyone mentions it. #advicefromMom— DrAnnMaria (@DrAnnMaria) October 11, 2015
Second sign what you're doing is wrong. If you feel the need to hide it from people who care about you. #adviceFromMom— DrAnnMaria (@DrAnnMaria) October 11, 2015
Third sign what you are doing is wrong: you try to avoid thinking about it. #adviceFromMom— DrAnnMaria (@DrAnnMaria) October 11, 2015
If all of your friends and family think someone is a douchebag, he's not misunderstood, he (or she) is a douchebag #adviceFromMom— DrAnnMaria (@DrAnnMaria) October 12, 2015
Deserve bonus points for 50 times today I did NOT say "Are you f--king kidding me?" & no weirdos, it has nothing to do with @RondaRousey— DrAnnMaria (@DrAnnMaria) October 13, 2015
I have 4 daughters & a #startup so why people think every tweet applies to 1 daughter, I don't know— DrAnnMaria (@DrAnnMaria) October 13, 2015
