Priscilla Ceballos apologized Friday for helping her 6-year-old daughter write a fake essay about having her father die in Iraq to win tickets to see ‘Hannah Montana’ star Miley Cyrus during an appearance on NBC’s ‘Today’ show on Friday (January 4).
“I meant no disrespect. I just made a bad decision which I sincerely regret,” Ceballos told ‘Today’ co-host Matt Lauer in a prepared statement. “I apologize to my daughter for getting her mixed up in his mess. I wanted to help my daughter realize her dream of seeing Hannah Montana. Instead, I brought so much negative attention to my family. Please accept my heartfelt apology, and please, do not punish my child for my mistake.” Watch the segment below the fold.
