There is a very messy feud happening at the moment between Amber Rose and her former mother-in-law, a woman named Katie “Peachie” Wimbush-Polk. But unlike regular people, Amber’s fight with Katie isn’t about what kind of fabric softener she uses (“I didn’t realize you used sandpaper instead of towels, dear“). It’s more like the kind that escalates to the point where both parties involved need to call up their lawyers.
Almost three years ago, Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa decided to end their 1-year marriage. They share a 4-year-old son named Sebastian, and for the most part they get along pretty well for two people who got divorced (although it was a little rocky in the beginning). The same can’t be said for Amber and her ex-MIL Katie.
According to TMZ, Katie recently slapped Amber with defamation lawsuit. In it, she claims Amber made a “profanity-laced” phone call on June 19th, accusing her of being responsible for the death of Wiz’s older sister Dorien “Lala” Thomaz back in February. Dorien died of complications from lymphoma. Amber allegedly accused Katie of allowing Dorien to die, then claimed Katie was unfit to care for Sebastian. XXL says that Amber’s phone call was allegedly answered by the 5-year-old daughter of a friend of Katie’s.
What makes this exponentially messier is that Amber’s angry phone call was allegedly made after Katie was accused of calling California child services on Amber (Katie denies in her lawsuit that she ever made such a call). Katie is suing for damages, but it’s not known how much that might be.
How has Amber Rose responded to the lawsuit? By taking a long look in the mirror, sighing, and telling herself: “This is going to make Christmas really awkward“? No, TMZ says she went ahead and got a restraining order against Wiz’s mom. Sources tell TMZ that Amber is furious about Katie’s lawsuit. Amber believes Katie is just sore that Amber left her son three years ago. Amber also believes Katie will take any opportunity to shit on her former daughter-in-law. Oh really? I wonder what gave her that idea.
So in love you never took his name…… #pieceofshitgang Imma write a song…….

Sources claim Amber got the restraining order to protect Sebastian from Katie’s hate. Amber thinks that being around Granny Katie might expose Sebastian to some not-nice things said about his mommy.
Katie is no Tokyo Toni (aka the current gold-standard of messy mother-in-laws), but this situation still isn’t good. But it’s not totally hopeless. One quick peek at Katie’s Twitter account shows she likes to retweet Iyanla Vanzant. Iyanla, if you’re listening, get thee to a tastefully-decorated hotel room with a camera crew and help Katie and Amber fix their damn lives.
