AceShowbiz - %cPink% somehow got involved in another family's problem. A New Jersey mother who was embroiled in a parental custody battle with her ex-husband was accused of bad parenting after she took their daughter to the singer's "The Truth About Love" concert at the Prudential Center in Newark back in December 2013.
A New Jersey judge, however, has ruled that there's nothing wrong with taking a child to a Pink concert. In a 37-page decision, New Jersey Superior Court Judge Lawrence R. Jones stated that the mother "in no way, shape or form exceeded the boundaries of reasonable parental judgment" by attending the gig.
"[The mother's] decision did not subject the child to any unreasonable risk of harm, or compromise [her] health, safety or welfare," Jones wrote. "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."
The ex-husband wasn't happy with the fact that his daughter, now 12, attended the concert because according to him, Pink used "lyrical profanities" and "sexually suggestive themes and dance performances" in her music. In his decision, Jones noted that Pink's lyrics on songs like "The Great Escape" and "Perfect" were actually empowering for adolescents.
He further said that the child enjoying a night out with her mom was good. "The fact that [the daughter] enjoyed a parent/child night out together, sharing an experience which was clearly very important to the child in her young life. In this day and age, it is easy for parents to put off important bonding experiences with their children until a tomorrow which simply never comes," he explained.
