Michael Owen cut off Love Island star Gemma's pocket money when she was 18 in savage way | The Sun

LOVE Island star Gemma Owen has moaned about her famous dad Michael cutting off her pocket money when she was 18.

The football legend told how he told his eldest daughter to "get a job in a pub" after she complained.


But ex-Liverpool striker Michael, 42, admitted Gemma was "fuming".

Speaking on Emily Dean's Walking The Dog podcast about her allowance Gemma said: "Mine started late and stopped. It's not fair, honestly.

"Pocket money only started for me a few years ago. My brother and sisters have had a good few years on me. In that way it's not fair."

Michael insisted: "It stops when you're 18.
