Astoundingly, J.K. Rowling Threatens Legal Thunderbolt Against Harry Potter Fan Page Over Sensational Claims of Estranged Daughter and Grandchild

Astoundingly, J.K. Rowling Threatens Legal Thunderbolt Against Harry Potter Fan Page Over Sensational Claims of Estranged Daughter and Grandchild –

The Controversy

J.K. Rowling, the renowned author of the Harry Potter series, has threatened legal action against a fan site, Wizarding News, over false claims circulated about her personal life. The claims suggested that Rowling has an estranged daughter and grandchild, something the author vehemently denies.

Rowling’s Response

In a series of posts on X (formerly Twitter), Rowling addressed the allegations, stating, “This is untrue in all respects, as I suspect they already know. Lying about my kids is a new low, even by this website’s subterranean standards.” She expressed her frustration, saying, “Your vendetta against me is causing collateral damage to innocent people. If legal action is the only way to protect them, I will take it.”

The False Claims

Wizarding News had posted claims suggesting that Rowling’s eldest daughter, whom she was famously pregnant with while writing Harry Potter, had changed her last name to distance herself from her mother and had moved to Portugal. The site also insinuated that Rowling was a grandmother, questioning why she had never discussed her grandchildren.

Setting the Record Straight

Rowling firmly refuted these claims, providing details to clarify the situation. “I’ve done everything I can to keep my children out of the public eye,” she wrote. “My eldest daughter doesn’t owe you or anyone else details of her private life. However, for the avoidance of doubt: 1. Contrary to your claims, we are very close and last talked an hour ago. We discussed your posts, which have angered and distressed her. 2. Contrary to your claims, she doesn’t live in Portugal. 3. Contrary to your claims, she has no children. 4. The young mother whose photograph and personal details you published is not my daughter and has no relation to me whatsoever.”

Demand for Retraction and Apology

Rowling demanded a retraction and apology from Wizarding News, stating, “You’ve published easily disproven and damaging falsehoods. Should we go to legal proceedings, you will need to show why, in spite of being told the truth, you neither retracted nor apologised. In the absence of any such retraction and apology, the next communication you receive will be from my lawyer.”

Wizarding News’ Response

Wizarding News eventually deleted the post with the photographs and link to the Instagram account in question. They apologized to Rowling’s daughter, stating, “We are unreservedly sorry… to JK Rowling’s eldest daughter… for understandably mixing her up with a VERY coincidentally named person found in multiple published online articles & biographies identifying her as such, and extrapolating & sharing inaccurate details therefrom.”
