Austin, who shares the 8-year-old with her husband Ice-T, has seen her method of raising Chanel questioned in the past.

Back in December 2022, she was slammed for letting her child "twerk" in front of a camera, and in September of that year, she was trolled for bathing her daughter in the kitchen sink instead of the bathroom. Then, in August 2023, she was roasted for sharing a "weird" kiss with her child while they were taking a swim.

But contrary to what many might think, the swim model believes she has not failed with regard to training her daughter.

In an interview with Page Six, she said that she "knows what's right and wrong" for her daughter and would not put her in harm's way.
