"10 Minutes Later, She'll Forget:" Cyndi Lauper Gets Real About Mom's Dementia And What It's Like To Confide In Her
Cyndi Lauper's family life growing up was far from the idyllic wholesome household that one might imagine.
Cyndi Lauper's parents, Catrine and Fred, got divorced when she was five years old and her mother ended up remarrying. In her book titled Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir, the singer revealed some details of her childhood including the fact that she had to leave home when she was a teenager.
Catrine's second husband was a predator who taunted Cyndi so badly that she didn't feel safe at home. All that, however, became water under the bridge as the She Bop singer now relies on her mother for advice and guidance despite things being a little complicated.
