Finneas gave a detailed reply to allegation on social media that he and his sister Billie Eilish are successful because of their parents’ connections in the music industry.
Finneas recently tweeted that his parents were never able to fully financially support their children off their work as actors.
“Our dad worked 12 hour days 7 days a week as a construction worker for Mattel and our mom was a teacher. Our parents gave us love but knew no one in the record industry,” he said, referring to an allegation from a troll.
“I paid off their mortgage last year and billie pays them each salaries to tour with us full time though they have told us many times they would work for us for free,” Finneas explained.
He added, “Anyone who saw us tour in 2019 knows our dad insists on sweeping the stage each night before we perform.”
The siblings have been riding on the wings of success for quite some time.
Finneas and Eilish co-wrote the title track to the upcoming James Bond film, No Time To Die, while Eilish is fresh off winning five Grammy awards, becoming the youngest artist to sweep the big four categories.
