          “I Believe My Daughter is Being Controlled by Her BFF”

          April 15, 2016

          14020 title

          Rachel had high hopes for her daughter, Shaila, with dreams of her graduating college, getting into the medical field, marrying a smart, handsome man and becoming a mother.

          But Rachel says those dreams were shattered when her daughter met Destinee. Rachel says Shaila’s BFF has been more of a BFD – best friend disaster — ever since they became roommates two months ago.

          Shaila has now dropped out of college, and her mom claims she is more of Destinee’s servant than sidekick. She says she believes her daughter is belittled, mistreated and “beaten down” all because of her so-called bestie, Destinee, who strongly denies Rachel’s allegations.

          She says she wants Destinee out of her daughter’s life forever.
