Morrissette Amon’s father Amay voiced out his frustrations towards his daughter online recently, revealing their family is having a strained relationship because of the singer's boyfriend Dave Lamar.

After his tweets and rumors saying Morisette left their family home, another round of speculation started circulating about the Asia’s Phoenix being a victim of physical abuse. Amay vehemently denied the issue. 

He opted to not add more fuel to the fire but addressed the issue that he allegedly hit his daughter.

“I have been waiting for the storm to pass, but I have recently seen things written about me and my family, that are categorically untrue. I will not give my time and my energy anymore speaking to every of those lies, with one very serious exception,” he wrote.

“I have never, ever hit my daughter. That narrative ends here. As a father, there will be missteps, there will be miscommunication, and there will be mistakes. But physically disciplining my children has never been, and will never be a part of my parenting,” he added.

Amay wrote a long Instagram post saying he is halting his rants online as it attracts negative energy. He also admitted that this made things more complicated with the barage of unwanted opinions. 

“I take full responsibility for having invited outside opinions and speculation on what should have been a private family matter. My tweets were written out of frustration and heartbreak. I know now that no tweet could possibly summarize all of the nuances in the series of events that lead to today.

“The only people who know the whole truth are the ones that lived it, including Morissette.”

For Amay, he and his wife only want to be the best parents for their ‘extraordinary children.'

“We have made every effort to support and sustain our family, and now we are called on to survive this storm. And we will. I know now that the only thing the internet loves more than a hero is a villain. I know that controversy generates clicks, views, and press, but I will not be that villain anymore.

“I look forward to the conversation shifting back to my daughter’s undeniable talent, drive, passion, and more – where it should have stayed,” he said.

Amay also wants to reconcile with Morissette.

“As for the road ahead, I hope all parties can speak their truth and be heard, respected, and believed, and hopefully the work to reconciliation and healing starts soon.”

Morissette has kept mum about the issue but Paolo Valenciano stepped in and previously advised Amay that it is best if personal matters were discussed in private.
