So, what is going on?

Creating a series of Instagram stories, husband of McBroom’s friend Amanda called out the ACE Family mom for allegedly ripping off ideas for her skincare brand, 1212 Gateway.

The first story, which is now deleted, reportedly read: “Literally stole Amanda’s plan from her. SMH, I can’t stand people. Always hiding Amanda and using her.”

Amanda’s husband later continued: “People are fake. Upsets me to see someone give their all to a friend and be used for their ideas and never get credit for it. My wife is a sweetheart and will never say anything but me, I’m vocal. That whole plan and other things previous were Amanda’s ideas, even that crystal store. She was supposed to help Amanda blow it up and then took her ideas and used them for herself. Enough is enough. Stop believing the hype.”


What is 1212 Gateway Skincare?

1212 Gateway Skincare is Catherine (Paiz) McBroom’s skincare line, selling everything from cleansers to face masks.

The beauty brand’s website reads: “1212 Gateway was built upon the values and experience of founder, Catherine McBroom. Catherine suffered from skin problems at an early age, which led her to go down the often-traversed road of trial & error with skincare products. Fortuitously, this fueled her passion for skincare and a seed of an idea was planted.”

Though, in new revelations, McBroom is being accused of stealing the brand ideas from Amanda.
