Emma said it began when she purchased her mom an iPhone, which she described as “the worst thing [she] ever did,” because her mom proceeded to use the phone to look up gossip and rumors about her online.
“And then she got Instagram,” Emma went on. “Which was okay at first. Just a couple hundred followers. Which grew to a couple thousand. Which grew to, she had no idea what she was dealing with…”
Emma then revealed that one point, her mom got catfished by someone posing to be singer Jackson Browne.
“And then it led to, you know, interacting with my fans, and thanking them for all their pregnancy wishes.”
But the issue was that Emma had not revealed to the public that she and boyfriend, Garrett Hedlund, were expecting.
“It was a disaster,” Emma recalled. “And I found it all out on a plane, so I couldn’t get to her. Like I couldn’t call her or attack her. I could just iMessage with her and DM her and ask her to please stop.”
“When I said to her, ‘Mom, you revealed my pregnancy,’ she goes, ‘Emma, you announced it.’ I said, ‘No, I didn’t. That was a tabloid.’ She’s like, ‘Oh, that wasn’t clear.'”
Emma then revealed to Jimmy how she and her mom “kind of got in a fight” after the news leaked: “I blocked her at one point. Um, it was my only weapon.”
“She texted me at 2 a.m., ‘Queen, did you block me? Question mark. Sad face.’ I was like, ‘Yes, I did block you.’ Then I unblocked her. It’s been an Instagram war with my mother that I never saw coming. A good story to tell the baby.”
