Sting’s wife Trudie Styler reveals her children were bullied at school over music icon’s fame

They are the children of a music icon and a hugely successful film producer.

But it seems that Sting, 66, and Trudie Styler’s children were given a hard time at school as the actress, 64, revealed they were bullied just because their dad was famous.

Talking to the Daily Mirror, she said: ‘My own kids also suffered from being bullied – with a dad as famous as Sting was when they were growing up, their relationships were always going to be affected, at least at first.’

‘And most kids don’t like having a reason to be singled out, or different. My daughter Eliot has recently talked about what a hard time she had at school.’

Eliot, who is a solo artist and the front woman of band I Blame Coco, came out as gay in 2015, and revealed she ‘doesn’t believe in any specifications’ to gender or identity.

Trudie and Sting also share three other children, Mickey, 33, Jake, 32, and Giacomo, 21, while Sting has daughter Kate, 35, and son Joe, 40, from his first marriage, to actress Frances Tomelty.

The topic of bullying features prominently in her new film Freak Show which tells the story of teenage drag queen Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther) who, despite attending a conservative high school, makes the decision to run for homecoming queen.

Based on James St. James’ novel, the movie features Laverne Cox and young stars of the screen Abigail Breslin, who plays Lynette, and Anna Sophia Robb, who portrays Blah Blah Blah.

While she is incredibly proud of the reception to the film, Trudie revealed during an appearance on Lorraine in March that her directorial role was not actually planned.

She explained: ‘I was its producer. I had another director on board but he had to take an urgent leave of absence, and I was left holding the baby! So I had to re-finance it and re-cast it.’

Detailing her hopes for the project, she added: ‘It’s not just about bullying and diversity, but also everybody’s right to be the person that they are and to not let obstacles get in the way of that.

‘We should be lobbying in our schools for better rights for kids who feel to be a different gender, or to be able to wear the apparel they feel the most comfortable in.

‘We’re working very hard with an organisation in America called Stomp Out Bullying, which I hope will be a tool in England to talk about this and stop the bullying.’
