Taryn Manning - Manning Blames Bandmate Brother For Lack Of Success

Actress/rocker Taryn Manning has blamed her bandmate brother Kellin for wrecking her chances to become a music star, accusing him of sabotaging their group Boomkat's big break.
Kellin once showed up late for the band's TV appearance on America's The Tonight Show and Manning reveals that was just one of the many times her sibling let her down.
The 8 Mile star tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "My brother's mentality and mine are so much more different. He's lackadaisical and didn't understand at the time just how big we could've been.
"He had a huge ego because it happened really fast. My brother sabotaged us and he regrets it of course. I love my brother more than anything on this planet, so I'm not trying to throw him under the bus."
But she has had some great times with him as well: "One time we were in Berlin and played in this old Communist building and our power shorted the whole place so we had to play unplugged in complete darkness for the fans, so we called ourselves the Boomkatastrophe instead of Boomkat."
