Jackie Christie's Estranged Daughter Writes An Open Letter To Doug Christie About How He Treated Her

Jackie Christie's estranged daughter, Takari Lee, has been open about her strained relationship with her mother. Lee has blasted her mother on social media for treating her badly throughout her life. Now, Takari has penned an open letter to her stepfather to thank him for being kind to her.

Lee previously opened up about her distant relationship with her mother, who gave birth to her six years before meeting and tying the knot with step-father and former NBA player, Doug Christie.

Takari revealed she has always had a good relationship with her stepfather, but has never been close to her mother. She took to social media to thank Doug for being good to her, while also throwing shade at the "Basketball Wives" star.

Lee wrote in the caption, "I have been meaning to address this for some time now...I know there are a lot of questions regarding my step dad and his stance. While I can't tell you how he feels, these are my honest thoughts and feelings..."

In Takari's open letter, she writes, "For the few years I did spend living in your home as a child, you welcomed me more than my flesh and blood. Even with the restricted interactions and limited time frames imposed on us, I don't recall a time of you not trying to teach or preach something to us. Every conversations was of some type of intellect and something new was always learned. 

"Although, I haven't spoken to you in years, I have never faulted you or felt you did wrong by me or my siblings. You are and always have been a stand up man, and I believe your hands were just as tied as everyone else, but at the same time you were kept very distant from us, so how much you knew or understood, I don't know. While all of our lives are changing, I hope you know I love you and will always consider you family, no matter what the future holds. Thank you Doug."[sic]

Lee released a book about her strained relationship with her mother, titled, "Lights to a Shadow: The Takari Lee Christie Story."

Takari wrote that she felt ostracized by her mother due to her darker skin color and weight.
