Carrie Fisher’s Brother Todd Responds To Niece Billie Lourd: ‘It’s Not All About Her’ (Exclusive)
Carrie Fisher’s brother is responding to his niece, Billie Lourd’s statement expressing why she did not want her uncle and aunts at her mother’s Hollywood walk of fame ceremony. In an exclusive interview with Access Hollywood, Todd Fisher, the sibling of the late “Star Wars” actress, disagreed with the “American Horror Story” stars’ decision. “Well I was a little surprised that she didn’t have a good reason, you know, a that’s a completely ridiculous reason if you think about it, that a book was written that I have to ask permission from her to write my life story with my sister and mother. Carrie wrote seven books, far more exploitive than anything I ever wrote. My mother wrote three books nobody asked Billie’s permission to write these books. I don’t really think it’s a valid point, I’ll love her anyway. She is who she is by birth to me and you know hopefully she’ll understand someday that it’s not all about her,” he said. Todd’s reaction comes just one day after the “Scream Queens” alum confirmed in a statement to Access Hollywood that Carrie Fisher’s siblings Todd, Joely and Tricia Leigh Fisher aren’t invited to her late mom’s Hollywood walk of fame ceremony on Thursday. “I have seen the postings and press release issued by my mother’s brother and sister. I apologize to anyone reading this for feeling the need to defend myself publicly from these family members. But unfortunately, because they publicly attacked me, I have to publicly respond. The truth is I did not invite them to this ceremony. They know why,” she said.
