Celebrity Parents Red Hot Chili Pepper's joke escalates to child abuse rumor By Staff Author Published on July 17, 2006 08:15 PM Share Tweet Pin Email While on a radio show in Manchester, England last week, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and the host began discussing their children – Flea has an 18 year old daughter Clara, and a baby girl, Sunny Bebop, 9 months. Flea described a recent incident where Sunny bumped her head on the table, then joked he put her in the closet because she was crying. Instead of being taken as a joke, numerous morning show DJs in the United States put the quote in their gossip reports this morning, failing to mention that Flea was not at all serious about putting his baby in the closet!
