The Wahlberg Family Rift
Michelle found herself in trouble with the law repeatedly, struggling with addiction and legal issues. In 2008, an altercation with her live-in boyfriend resulted in Michelle firing a gun in his direction, leading to her incarceration. Although she claimed that she did not intend to hit him, her siblings distanced themselves from her.
In a 2008 interview with the National Enquirer, Michelle, a waitress at the time, expressed feeling abandoned by her family. Despite their wealth, they did not help her during her legal battle. Furthermore, two years later, she made a feud she had with her family public, which didn’t sit well with her mother, Alma. Unfortunately, Michelle passed away in 2019, and the reason for her death remains unknown. The Wahlberg family did not release an official statement on the matter, leaving the public to speculate.
