Think everything is always sunshine and good times in the terminally chilled-out Alves-McConaughey household? Think again. Word has it that Matteo is having trouble with his baby mama’s mama and, as you might expect, that’s leading to trouble with long-standing girlfriend Camila Alves too.
As the ancient saying goes, “if mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.” Well, the same applies to grandmas as well, apparently. According to a McConaughey insider:
“Camila’s mother is very traditional, and she’s worried that since they are not married, Matthew could leave her daughter high and dry with two kids if he falls out of love with her… She’s been telling Cam that she needs to force Matthew into a financial agreement, but when Cam brought it up, Matthew exploded. He said, ‘I’ll always take care of our babies – and you!'”
Wow, it seems that no matter how much wealth and fame you may have, no man is totally immune to the classic mother-in-law power play.
Even though Camila’s mom, Multo Abrigado, isn’t technically McConaughey’s mother-in-law, she is the grandmother to his two kids, and holds that special mother-daughter bond with Camila. Thus, she wields some considerable leverage, whether Matteo acknowledges it or not.
Adds the informer:
“It’s caused a rift between them, and Matthew’s kind of scratching his head over it. He told me, ‘It seems kind of cold, doesn’t it?’
But he’s got to realize that when couples love each other, they usually get married.”
What do you think: Should Matt just grow up already and marry the mother of his two kids? Or should Camila’s mom butt out?
