Paris Fury defended decision to allow her daughter to leave school aged 11

Paris Fury defended decision to allow her daughter to leave school aged 11

Paris shares six children with her boxer husband Tyson Fury

TV star and mother-of-seven Paris Fury has never been one to shy away from the often harsh realities of parenting in the spotlight.

In fact, the successful author and Netflix frontwoman has made an impressive living for herself from giving fans a glimpse into how she and sportsman husband Tyson Fury run her colossal household.

Whilst letting viewers into her Irish Travelling family's untraditional antics, however, the blonde beauty has exposed herself to criticism from the general public regarding the way she raises her enormous brood.

Thankfully, however, the 34-year-old has proven time and time again that she's able to defend herself from trolls - especially last year, after she came under fire for allowing daughter to leave school aged just 11.

The couple's eldest daughter Venezuela, 14, was taken out of the education system nearly three years ago, after she had finished primary school.

Paris, who welcomed her seventh child with her boxing heavyweight champion husband in September last year, admitted on her family's hit Netflix show At Home With The Furys, that the decision was one of the toughest they had ever made as parents.

She explained that taking Venezuela out of school was her idea - in keeping with traveller tradition.

And although Tyson was unsure at first, he eventually agreed that it was for the best.

Later, opening up on the controversial decision to The Sun, Paris said: "We finish school at primary age, which is the traditional traveller way.

"We’ve just brought the tradition into the 21st century. Venezuela wanted to leave school and all her [traveller] friends were leaving.

"Her tutor is gonna keep her up to date with all of her tests. She will also be having piano lessons."

She continued: "We move so much. It wouldn’t work if they were in school full-time to then be off to America."

Recalling the night that Venezuela had her school leaving party, Paris said that 'gentle giant' Tyson used it as an opportunity to be the 'cool' parent.

"Venezuela was going to her school leaving party and had a giant pair of my heels on," Paris explained.

"I said: ‘You are not wearing them.’ But she said: ‘Please. All the girls are wearing heels.’

"I thought I would be clever and said: ‘If your dad says you can wear them, you can.’

"And she came running down saying: ‘Dad said yes!’ I thought he would be this strict dad, but he’s not. He wants to be the cool parent."

Paris and Tyson are also parents to Prince John James, 11, Prince Tyson II, seven, Valencia, five, Prince Adonis Amaziah, four, and Athena, two and Prince Rico Paris, 10 months.

The couple first met almost two decades ago, when Tyson was 17 and Paris was 15 and tied the knot back in 2008.
