In response to an article that questioned the specific details of Davis' life, conservative critics have accused the "Abortion Barbie" of only succeeding because of a "Sugar Daddy Ken".
From the link:
"The discrepancies pointed out by The Dallas Morning News in Davis' tale of past hardships were relatively minor. Davis has said she was a divorced single mother at 19, when she was only separated at 19. Her divorce did not become final until she was 21.

Davis mentioned in 2012 that her mother had a sixth-grade education; in fact, her mother has a ninth-grade education.
