Macklemore is thankful for his mother-in-law.
The rapper, 36, took to Instagram on Wednesday to open up about his “changed” relationship with his wife Tricia Davis’ mother, Diana, since getting sober.
In a sweet selfie from their trip to Paris, Macklemore let his fans in on what it took to gain Diana’s trust.
“Out here in Paris with my mama in law. Glowed up. Grown up. She used to not trust my a** at all, as I’d sneak in and out of her house to visit [Davis] on the late night,” he captioned the pic. “Now we in Paris eating appetizers, shopping, walking the city and looking out the window at the Eiffel Tower. Life is good. Change is good. I love her beyond words. And I think she likes me now.”
But one follower challeged Macklemore’s claims, suggesting their “changed” relationship was thanks to another reason.
“Amazing what a few million dollars can do,” the troll wrote, captured by the popular Instagram account “Comments By Celebs”.
In response, the “Thrift Shop” rapper clapped back, writing, “Although money is nice, it, unfortunately, can’t keep you sober. And when I got sober that’s when our relationship changed. Money had nothing to do with it. (But yet, Paris is hella expensive and these euros adding up.)”
Macklemore got sober in 2012, after opening up about using alcohol and drugs to cope with fame.
He told Fault magazine last year, “There was a rapid transition and to have the world’s eye on me all at once with back-to-back number ones, and all the accolades that came with it — I didn’t know how to deal with it… I didn’t know how to adjust, so I escaped.”
