Gloria Estefan’s daughter Emily was ‘hurt’ when her mother said not to speak to her grandmother, bringing up her pain during Wednesday’s episode of Red Table Talk: The Estefans.

After Emily, 25, told Gloria, 63, that she was in love with another woman in 2017, her superstar mother banned her from discussing her sexuality with her grandmother, Gloria Fajardo, fearing that the news does not affect his already fragile health.

‘I was like,’ Hey, I’m in love with that girl. The first thing you said was, ‘If you tell your grandmother and she dies, her blood is on your hands,’ Gloria’s youngest child said.

Emily, who is also a musician, was devastated by the dramatic response as it made her feel like her outing was being rejected.
