While she hasn’t made her family public much during her time as a celebrity, Ailee has often mentioned her mother and the things she says on various broadcasts. She has shared stories on how her mother suggested her to lose some weight in her thighs, which she followed, and also how her mother always would compliment her.

I’m away from my mother, but she gives me a lot of strength with her compliments and encouragement she sends me.

But she also tells me to lose some weight from my thighs.
