“How many kids like Piper Rockelle are being exploited by their parents?,” the mother-of-two asked her followers in a tweet on Sunday, August 29. “And at what point do the rest of us say… ‘this isn’t okay for a 13 yr old to be posing in a bikini whilst her MOTHER takes the photo?!?!’”

The teenage dancer told TMZ, P!nk’s tweet really “affected her emotionally.” She also claimed that the bikini shots in question were taken at a time while she was quarantining at home after contracting COVID-19.

Rockelle says she “wanted to take the pics to show off her favorite bathing suit,” adding “a lot of kids her age do that,” and she “doesn’t see any harm in it at all.”
