Gia Giudice made headlines earlier this year when her singing group, 3KT, released a music video for their cover of Britney Spears' "Circus", which featured the 13-year old and her friends dancing provocatively in some very grown-up outfits. But their second video made headlines before it was even released, because the group created a Kickstarter campaign to fund it and had trouble making their goal. The page was ultimately shut down on December 1.
“Teresa believes there are negative forces, including co-stars from RHONJ, that are the reason why Gia’s music video fundraising efforts have been a failure so far. Teresa says there are haters that are determined to make sure Gia’s music career goes down in flames,” a source told RadarOnline.
Whether or not there was anyone actively sabotaging the group's success, the girls moved on and shot the video for "Season Of Joy" anyway, although it's not clear where the funding came from.
Despite the negative press surrounding the Kickstarter campaign, 3KT has found success with their catchy pop style; "Season Of Joy" has racked up over 85,000 views, and according to the group's YouTube page, they will be performing live on December 26 at an iPlay event.
Giudice recently spoke about her parents' legal troubles after the reality stars were sentenced to begin separate prison sentences for fraud in January.
"Obviously, any news that is hurtful or horrible to hear is so upsetting. But my family is probably one of the strongest families I know, so we'll get through this. It's going to be fine and when it's over, we're going to be better than ever," she told Access Hollywood.
