Michael Bolton’s Daughters Control His Love Life

Love is a wonderful thing. Except for singer Michael Bolton and actress Nicollette Sheridan.

The latest issue of Life&Style explains the reason the couple—who have been on-again, off-again since 1992—called it quits this time around.

“[Bolton’s adult daughters] Isa, Holly and Taryn disliked Nicollette,” says an insider. “Michael played referee and tried to smooth things over, but when push came to shove, he chose his daughters over his fiancée.”

Gosh, what a pushover. This is in quite stark contrast to another pop star, who wields an iron fist over her daughter and not vice-versa.

Maybe Michael should take the advice of Nicollette’s Desperate Housewives co-star Teri Hatcher, and just tell his daughters to go occupy themselves with sex and chocolate.
