Moreover, the singer and yodeler found that when she looked back on this time, she realized that her mother was not just stealing. She was also lying to her.

And then as I started investigating the truth about what my mom had told me in my life versus what was true, I had realized that pretty much everything that I had formed my reality off was fiction.

Sadly, she learned a startling truth at the age of 34. She had to learn the truth about her past. Jewel was in debt for several million dollars, and her mother stole all the money she earned from her hard work.

Jewel went on to reveal that her father, Atz Kilcher, who stars in the Discovery reality series, Alaska: The Last Frontier, had a reason for separating his children from Lenedra. He wasn’t punishing her. It turns out, Nedra didn’t want to be a mother.

In Jewel’s autobiography, Never Broken–Songs Are Only Half The Story, Jewel took a deep dive into her emotions surrounding her mother. “I can’t tell you the tears I’ve cried to see who my mom really is.” She only confessed her need for a mother. “I can’t tell you about the pain, and how my heart to this day screams to have a mom in my life.”

However, Kilcher has learned that she cannot trust the woman that she knew as her mother admitting that “it is not safe with her.” She has now become so detached from her, she can only this parental unit by her first name “Every day I miss having a mom. But I don’t miss Nedra.”
