Martin Scorsese's daughter seeks public help to repair her flooded Brooklyn apartment with GoFundMe campaign
Catherine has reportedly started a GoFundMe campaign, asking people to help her clean out the dirt and sewage water from her flooded Brooklyn apartment
Martin Scorsese's daughter is apparently dealing with some mean sewage issues, but she's not asking the 'Mean Streets' director for any help. Catherine Scorsese, instead of asking her father, who's roughly worth $100 million, for help fixing her flooded Brooklyn apartment, has chosen to ask the public for $30,000.
Catherine has reportedly started a GoFundMe campaign, asking people to help her clean out the dirt and sewage water from her flooded Brooklyn apartment. "This is f**ked up," said one industry insider after seeing her GoFundMe campaign. "She is Marty's daughter! He's loaded."
But the 53-year-old insists that while her father is a good person, she's not looking at mooching off money from him. "If I'm going to ask my dad for something, I’m going to ask for something like helping to fix me up with Chris Evans," she said to Fox News. "I'm not a trust fund baby," continued the proud propmaster and film production crew member.
Catherine stated that she recently had dinner with her director father and that he knows about her March 24 run-in with raw sewage leaking into her Williamsburgh duplex from her neighbor's clogged toilet. However, Scorsese is still unaware that his daughter is asking the public for money and has raised $6,055 in handouts.
"This was something nice my sisters tried to do," the director’s oldest daughter said of the GoFundMe campaign. "I'm my own person, and unless it's something I feel like I can't manage, I would prefer not to go to my parents." Catherine's stepsister further wrote that her elder sister was in "dire" need of help, and posted video footage on the site showing water raining from the ceiling vents and running down the walls.
The flood resulted in thousands of dollars in damage, including mold and peeling wallpaper, Catherine said. She's relocated to a rental in Manhattan, paid for by her insurance company, while her "completely unlivable" condo is under renovation for the next four months.
Catherine further mentioned she couldn’t take five of her eight pet dogs and cats with her, so she's on the hook for boarding fees and the $25,000 insurance deductible. Of her present predicament, Catherine is trying not to be a raging bull: "Maybe something good will come out of my sh*ty situation, pun intended."
According to reports, Catherine is Scorsese's daughter from his first wife, producer Laraine Marie Brennan, to whom Scorsese was married from 1965 to 1971. She, however, claims to not be a typical "Hollywood baby", growing up "middle class" in New Jersey, and inheriting the 'Taxi Driver' director's famed Queens-bred work ethic.
