She changed her name to Billie Holiday because of her admiration for film Grandfather was a slave. She was only 13 years younger then her mother. She went to jail for skipping school. She died under the influence of drugs.
Yes billie holiday did have children. 2 kids that were put in care of the state the fathers are un known maybe because she was raped twice. Once when she was 10 and once when she was 15. she went to a catholic school after being raped for safety.
People have to go to school to get education. If you don't attend school then you wont have a job when you are older. If you don't attend school because your ill it does not matter or if u got a letter to fill out to say your going on holiday for a while
