And a devastating betrayal, revealed by the man’s cruel question: how does it feel to be whored by your mother for $500?”Moore’s mother was an alcoholic who, according to Moore, took her to bars when she was a teenager so that men would notice them. She died in 1998. Asked if she believed the man, she said: “I think, in my deep heart no. I don’t think it was a straightforward transaction.
