Tammy Rivera is a prime example of an overprotective mama bear when it comes to her daughter Charlie Rivera.
The former “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” star recently went off on fans who criticized the way her daughter was dressed. She hopped over to her Instagram page on Sunday, Oct. 11, and shared a super-cute picture of her 15-year-old daughter striking a fierce pose.
“I irritate her so bad lmao,” Rivera wrote alongside the snap. “I don’t care I got my picture 😌.”
In the photo, Charlie wore a cropped sweater, low-cut jeans and beads around her waist. The outfit showed off the teen’s stomach and pierced belly button, which some fans considered inappropriate.
“Sorry Tam looks a little ooverboard,” said one IG user. “You let her piece her belly button at 15?”
Another added, “Looking to grown for her age smh.”
Rivera wasn’t here for folks making sly remarks about her daughter and fired back, “Tend to yours! Don’t comment on mines unless you have something nice to say!”
Rivera supporters also defended Charlie against naysayers. One told the critic, “Girl no tf she does not, she looks just fine. move around and mind yo business. 🏌🏽♀️”
“DAMN HATERS!!!! She’s Gorgeous & Outfit 🔥,” someone else said.
Charlie is the apple of her mother’s eye.
In June, Rivera celebrated her daughter’s 15th birthday with a soul-stirring birthday post that left fans gushing.
She shared sweet throwback photos of her daughter from when she was a small child. The mother of one reflected on the snaps and called Charlie her “biggest accomplishment in life.”
“15 WOW I would’ve never imagined you would grow up to be this Beautiful, Loving, Smart, Caring, Giving, Unique, carefree, creative, spontaneous amazing young lady!” Waka Flocka‘s wife wrote on June 30.
“I thank God for you everyday! You are my biggest most proudest accomplishment in Life nothing can ever top you baby girl!” Rivera continued. “Y’all wish y’all Instagram niece a HAPPY 15th BIRTHDAY! I know y’all feel like y’all watched her grow up right before y’all eyes just like i did lol! @tammiesangel I LOVE YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING OR ANYONE IN THIS ENTIRE WORLD!!”
