Brooke Shields: Her Controversial Life Revealed

When 11-month-old Brooke Shields was thrust into the fashion industry, something in the modelling world changed.

Some of the biggest brands in the world wanted to hire her, and it seemed Shields was able to do it all – from modelling to acting, as well as studying at an Ivy League school.

However, now is the time to reveal the truth about her time in the spotlight.

It seems Shield was destined to live the life she did, as she was born to a model mother and a Revlon executive father. She was already a gifted child with a winning smile which was asking to be captured by a camera.

2. Fight For Legal Rights

In the early ’80s, Shield’s mother and a photographer had a huge legal dispute, where they were unable to settle the rights to some of the photos her mother had signed away. This was a massive issue, as Brooke was still a minor and the photos were due to be published in a book called Sugar and Spice. 

Due to the legal complications involved, the publication was postponed. The courts eventually ruled in favour of the photographer, as a loop hole suggests that if Brooke was considered a child performer rather than a model, her mother would have won the battle.
