Every family has skeletons in their closet, and though Demi Burnett is a cute as a button star, she is no exception. Life & Style reports that the former Bachelor contestant had revealed on the ABC show that her mother, Tina Jean Jordan, was recently released from prison for embezzlement, but it turns out that her rap sheet is a little more colorful than that.
Colton Underwood‘s could-have-been mother-in-law was most recently imprisoned for conspiracy to commit bank fraud, which costed her an 18-month sentence in FMC Carswell prison. She ended up spending her last six months in a halfway house in San Antonio, Texas. In 2007, she was actually sentenced for embezzlement, which might be what Demi was referring to. She has also been in trouble for violating her probation, committing grand theft, and committing forgery.
Though her mother has clearly had a troubled past, Demi still has a pretty close relationship with her, even accepting a call on the reality show from prison to talk to her. She stated on the beloved series, “My mom is actually going to get out very soon and the next time I would potentially see her would be with Colton.”
Though Colton didn’t end up choosing Demi, we hope that she and her mother are doing well!
