Designer Camila Alves, wife of actor Matthew McConaughey, always showed discretion and rarely spoke spontaneously about her daily life with the Hollywood star, with whom she has three children.
However, it seems that the Brazilian has radically changed her information policy during her time on the “Biscuits Jam” podcast, where she made some statements about her mother-in-law that caused some outrage among some listeners.
Mary Kathlene McCabe, better known as “Kay”, has been described more than once, albeit by her famous son, as a strong-willed woman, charismatic but very temperamental.
However, Camila wanted to go one step further and reveal how harshly she was treated by her when she started dating the American interpreter.
Kay presented her with complicated challenges to ensure that her intentions were noble and thereby gain her trust.
“When I came on stage he started doing all these things. He tested me, he really did. He called me by the names of Matthew’s ex-girlfriends. Or he would start talking to me in Spanish with a somewhat condescending tone. “He did everything to me,” said the famous artist’s wife.
During a trip to Istanbul, her problematic relationship with her mother-in-law changed radically. The model at the time had organized a fashion show in Turkey’s most populous city and wanted to take Kay with her to fraternize with her and show her affection.
“I remember during the plane ride he started telling me all these stories and putting things in my head. When we landed, I thought, ‘Okay, okay, I have to prepare for these situations,'” he recalled.
At the hotel, the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law got into an argument, the contents of which Camila did not want to reveal, and at that moment the former catwalk star had to use her strong personality. characterized by their “Brazilian and Latin American side”.
“I remember he started crying and I felt terrible at first. As I was putting her to bed, I looked at her and thought, “Oh my God, she’s telling me a lot of lies.” Then I lost my temper and brought out my Brazilian and Latin side. And I had it with her, I confronted her and we had a good time with this tug of war thing. And at the end he said, “Okay, you’re in.” He just wanted to see me fight. And now we have a wonderful relationship, I respect her very much and she respects me. We always end our conversations with jokes and laughter,” he said.
When asked about such a revelation, Matthew McConaughey proudly explained that his family has always been very reserved and cautious when welcoming new members.
“We’ve always had these rites of passage. It’s not easy getting into the McConaughey family. We put them to the test, it happens even among us, with my brothers and my mother. “We’ll make you cry, but then we’ll make you your favorite drink,” he joked to Entertainment Tonight.
