The UFC star also has a daughter named Ainslee, of which you can see via images with Lee on Instagram, but Lee has gotten some criticism for posting images of Ainslee on Instagram and Lee calls those critics “selfish.”
“That I’m selfish and that I don’t think of her and by posting pictures on social media I’m using Ainslee to better my career in ways, which is stupid,” she said to Shakiel Mahjouri of MMA Mania. “I’ve been posting pictures of her since she was a baby, since she was born. I’m proud of her. I’m proud to be her mother. For them, I’m just using her to make myself look better, I guess. I don’t understand it. And that it’s putting her in danger by posting pictures of her on social media. There are a lot of weirdos out there, but I’m not posting bad pictures. I’m posting like mom and daughter pictures.”
Ainslee has been seen with Andrea throughout the majority of her professional MMA career and has also been at events with Andrea in the past.
Lee has occasionally posted images of herself in lingerie on the same Instagram page as pictures of Ainslee has been posted, but Lee says those pictures are part of sponsorship deals.
“Supposedly Ainslee is being sandwiched between these sexy pornography photos,” Lee said. “I promote myself. I’m paid for these photos. I also have sponsorships. I have companies sending me lingerie and I also get paid. It’s my business.”
