When will stage parents learn that they should probably just take an Ambien for their nerves and be done with it! Taylor Lautner’s dad apparently doesn’t know how to take his paws off of his son’s acting career and is so controlling and difficult to work with that publicist Robin Baume of Slate PR dropped the teen werewolf from her roster.
Hoping to market Lautner as more than the 19-year-old kid that he is, Slate dropped the talent after only three months…Lautner’s dad [Daniel] proved to be too involved in the young actor’s career choices.
FYI, Mr. Lautner, if you keep getting too over-involved in your son’s life, he’ll go Miley-Cyrus-on-crack faster than you can say ‘there goes my meal ticket.’ No one likes a helicopter parent. Fatherly advice is one thing, but it’s quite another to be overbearing and annoying to the point that someone is willing to give up a major cash cow teen star as a client.
Besides, Taylor’s legally an adult, anyway! You technically don’t have to be around, so don’t eff up your relationship with your son by messing with his career. Sheesh.
