Ellie Goulding reveals her mother 'became quite threatening'

‘She became quite threatening!’ Ellie Goulding reveals she hasn’t seen her mother for almost a YEAR and admits she’s sought therapy because their difficult relationship ‘isn’t fixable’

She tied the knot with husband Caspar Jopling at the end of August 2019, but her 2019 ended with a surreal car crash incident while her 2020 started with her mum being involved in a racism storm.

And, in a recent interview, Ellie Goulding has revealed that she hasn’t seen her mother Tracey for almost a YEAR and has admitted she’s sought therapy because their difficult relationship ‘isn’t fixable’. 

The Love Me Like You Do hitmaker, 33, also admitted that her mother ‘became quite threatening’ the last time the singer spoke about her publicly.

Candid: Ellie Goulding, 33, has revealed that she hasn’t seen her mother Tracey for almost a YEAR and has admitted she’s sought therapy because their difficult relationship ‘isn’t fixable’

The Starry Eyed singer hasn’t seen her mother since she wed Caspar in York almost a year ago.

Ellie confessed that, though she’d like to be open about their problems, she’s too fearful about the repercussions.

She told The Independent: ‘It’s frustrating because I really want to talk to you about it. But she became quite threatening when I did talk about her in the press. Discussing her was a disaster.

‘I haven’t seen my mother since my wedding last year.’

Ellie also admitted that she sought out ‘a lot’ of therapy in a bid to work through the difficulties she has in her relationship with her mother.

She said: ‘I’ve done a lot of therapy about it because what I thought was fixable isn’t fixable.’

Adding that she hopes to one day ‘be able to get this off her chest,’ for now the singer is channelling her feelings into her music.

The singer also admitted that she knows that many women have strained relationships with their mothers, but are reluctant to speak out about it.     

 You should be ashamed: I’m A Celebrity’s Myles Stephenson accused Ellie Goulding’s mum (left) of racism amid Twitter spat earlier this year (stock photograph)

Upsetting: It all started when Tracey shared this tweet after watching a TV appearance with Myles on GMB and he hit back

Cross: Myles, whose father is Jamaican, said: ‘I’ll be sure to tell my ‘black’ side of my family that I sound like them! They’ll be happy! 2020 and racism already starting’

In January of this year, I’m A Celebrity’s Myles Stephenson accused Ellie’s mother Tracey of racism amid a Twitter war.  

It all started when Tracey tweeted off the back of the star’s appearance on Good Morning Britain: ‘Didn’t notice it so much on [the] jungle but what’s with #myles #gmb trying to sound like a black dude??’ 

 I’m A Celebrity’s Myles Stephenson accused her mother Tracey of racism amid a Twitter war on Friday.  

It all started when Tracey tweeted off the back of the star’s appearance on Good Morning Britain: ‘Didn’t notice it so much on [the] jungle but what’s with #myles #gmb trying to sound like a black dude??’ 

‘I will not tolerate racism’: Myles was furious and had this to say during the exchange 

 Sorry: Ellie herself has stayed mum on the subject (Pictured August 2019)

‘You should be ashamed! #FRacistPeople.’

It is not clear if Myles was aware that Tracey is Ellie’s mother at first, but his followers soon alerted him to the fact. 

While Ellie herself has stayed mum on the subject, Tracey hastily apologised and asserted that she believes she is not a racist. 

She wrote: ‘I’d like to apologise so much to you Myles and any upset it may have caused, I wrote something very childish I’m SO not racist, it was a flippant remark. 

‘I feel so totally ashamed about doing, it was taken out of context please forgive x.’

Myles then wrote that it looked like Tracey had deleted her account and she wrote: ‘I have sent you a genuine apology, I have not deleted my account. I am not racist at all, it was taken out of context.

‘If you want to use it and folk want to use it, by all means carry on. I have not racially abused anyone it’s a shame you think so.’

Tracey’s Instagram account is now private and she has deleted her Twitter account. 

In December 2019, Ellie came to the rescue of a driver trapped in his car as it was being pushed along one of London’s busiest dual-carriageways by a Royal Mail truck. 

‘I was childish’: Tracey hastily apologised for her earlier tweet and said it was ‘taken out of context’ 

‘This account doesn’t exist’: Tracey has since deleted her Twitter account following the exchange 

The staggering footage captured in the lead up to Christmas showed the articulated truck pushing a Volkswagen GTi that is stuck sideways on its front grill and bumper.

In the dramatic incident, filmed on the westbound Western Ave stretch of the A40 in London, other vehicles can be heard honking their horns whilst driving alongside the delivery truck in a bid to save the driver trapped inside of the black car.

The Starry Eyed hitmaker is in the Range Rover driving alongside the terrifying collision, and has revealed her chauffeur Guy was attempting to get the trucker’s attention.

Goulding later posted about the incident, sharing the MailOnline’s story, calling the incident ‘the craziest thing I’ve ever seen on the road. Everyone was just driving past but my driver Guy stopped’.

She also added that she was shocked how the first thing most of the witnesses did was bring out their phones to record the incident, and then slam the Royal Mail driver.

‘I can’t believe the first instinct of the other drivers who got out was to instantly start filming on their phones and shout abuse at the poor shocked driver, not even checking the other driver was ok,’ she said.

The Royal Mail truck driver climbs down from his cab and can be heard yelling: ‘I didn’t see him! I honestly didn’t see him!’


‘Crazy’: Singer Ellie (left, at the scene) shared the news on her Instagram account, saying the traffic collision was the ‘craziest thing I’ve seen on the road’

The cameraman argues with the Royal Mail worker as he opens the door of the Volkswagen and the car driver can be heard saying: ‘You spun me round.’

The Royal Mail driver then says: ‘Let’s pull over and I can explain.’

With other motorists asking the man if he is okay, which he replies affirmatively and seems to be remarkably calm given the danger he’d just been in.

That is where the video ends, with TfL later reporting a traffic jam where it happened close to the Hanger Lane roundabout.

A police spokesperson said: ‘There were no reported injuries. Officers spoke with both parties. No arrests were made.’

Drama: The singer also posted to her story that she couldn’t believe that people had been filming the incident instead of helping
