Former first lady Michelle Obama recently warned Paparazzi to leave her daughters, Sasha (21) and Malia Obama (24), alone.
During an interview with People En Español, Mrs. Obama revealed that Sasha and Malia are always stalked by paparazzi, as they currently reside in L.A. together.
“How much do I tell so that the media understands that my girls are not asking to be in the limelight? They are not social media stars,” she told the outlet about leaving them alone.
She continued, confirming that they’ve been heavily stalked because she recently published a book titled, “The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times.” Michelle officially kicked off her book tour in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 15.
“They are not looking to be followed by the paparazzi just because their mom wrote a book. And I hope the media hears me when I am saying this,” Mrs. Obama said.
The former first lady added that Sasha and Malia didn’t approve any parts of “The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times” where they were referenced. Instead, she said, “they are not seeking the light.”
Her latest book is her second, as she published a memoir titled “Becoming” back in 2018. According to the Associated Press, “Becoming” sold over 17 million copies worldwide, surpassing the sales of memoirs written by any previous first lady or modern president, including former President Barack Obama.
“The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times” is a collection of personal essays.
“I wrote the book for anyone who feels a little isolated, or frustrated or overwhelmed by all crises we are seeing in the news and on social media–from the pandemic that shut down our world to the murder of George Floyd to ongoing attacks on our democracy. There’s no denying that we’ve all felt a little lost or untethered,” Obama told the Latin magazine. “We’ve all wondered how we can regain some stability. This book is my attempt to share what’s given me that stability during times of change and difficulty throughout my life.”
