During a custody battle, a mother was accused of bad parenting by her ex-husband, after she took their 11-year-old daughter to a Pink concert.
The father was concerned when she took their daughter to the concert in December 2013 where songs titled ‘U + Ur Hand’, ‘Slut like You’, ‘Blow Me’ and ‘Fuckin Perfect’ were performed.
Lawrence R. Jones, the New Jersey Superior Court Judge stated:
[The mother’s] decision did not subject the child to any unreasonable risk of harm, or compromise [her] health, safety or welfare. To the contrary, when all the smoke from the custody litigation clears, it will be self-evident that all which happened here is that a young girl went to her first rock concert with her mother and had a really great time.Advertisement
After watching live footage of the concert on YouTube he was concerned about the use of ‘lyrical profanities’ and ‘sexually suggestive themes and dance performances’, but the judge ruled that “in no way, shape or form exceeded the boundaries of reasonable parental judgment”.
Here’s a trailer for the concert tour that the 11-year-old attended.
