“My mom sent me to foster care because I was out of control,” says Grant who was 9 at the time. Grant acknowledges, he’s always liked chaos in his life. “I like to mess with people.”

Why This Woman Says Her Son’s Girlfriend Should ‘Break Things Off’ And ‘Move On’ With Her Life

Wendy claims her youngest son Grant, is a “con artist” with a drinking problem and a history of abusing every woman he’s ever been with. Now, she’s advising his current girlfriend Korin, who is five months pregnant with the couple’s second child, to break things off and move on. “She’s called me because she’s scared out of her mind,” says Wendy. “He’s screaming at her – he would push her out onto the deck. Lock her outside on the deck in the winter…. He tells her to get out of the house.”

“When he’s drunk, he says things he doesn’t mean,” says Korin who blames Grant’s drinking for his behavior. “I walk on eggshells a lot because I don’t know what kind of mood he’s going to be in.”

Korin has moved out of the couple’s home four times but has always returned. She says she’s angry with Grant because she claims he keeps picking alcohol over his family. “Alcohol is Grant’s best friend,” says Korin.


Grant says he likes to drink, and agrees he’s an alcoholic, saying “I don’t have an off switch with alcohol.” He admits he lashes out at Korin but claims she is aggressive, and their life together is a non-stop battle. “Korin is overbearing, and constantly making my life harder.” Grant asserts no one has the right to tell him what to do, and he wishes his mom and girlfriend would just butt out of his life.

Wendy says she’s tired of the cycle of abuse, and what she calls Grant’s “toxic behavior.” Wendy says she loves Grant, but she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her grandchildren. She wants Korin to leave him, for her own safety. “It’s unhealthy for the children. It’s definitely unhealthy for a baby. It’s unsafe. I just think she needs to get away and be on her own.”

Korin says she is scared to stay but still considers Grant to be the love of her life. “I believe my children deserve a lot more – but I’m scared to leave Grant for good – I’m scared to be without him.”

Can Dr. Phil help this couple who met in rehab work things out, or does he agree with Wendy that Korin needs to sever all ties now? Watch the video above, and tune in to Dr. Phil Tuesday to find out!

Teen Says Getting Paid For A Massage With A ‘Happy Ending’ Is Not Prostitution

Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne moved into a motel room with two virtual strangers after her parents, Marcia and Greg, say they kicked her out of the family home for disrespecting them and breaking their rules. Now, they say their daughter’s new roommates are a prostitute and a pimp, and claim Cheyenne has been prostituting herself, as well.

But Cheyenne contends she isn’t a prostitute because she isn’t having sex. “I’m not full service,” says the young woman, who also claims to make about $150 per massage.

WATCH: What Life Is Like For A Teen Who Gives Massages With ‘Happy Endings’

When asked about the services she offers, Cheyenne says while many of her clients just want a regular massage, some do expect a “happy ending” and are willing to pay more to get it. “It is sexual,” Cheyenne admits, but denies what she is doing amounts to prostitution. “It’s just – hands only – strictly.”

Dr. Phil challenges the teenager, asking: “How is that not prostitution? Sex for money?”

Dr. Phil shows Cheyenne a copy of the prostitution laws in her state which clearly makes it a crime to handle sexual organs for the purpose of sexual gratification, something Cheyenne claims she didn’t know.

In the video above, an emotional Marcia pleads with her daughter, “What you’re doing is wrong.” Cheyenne’s parents say they’re worried she’ll end up in jail.

‘My Teenage Daughter Moved Into A Motel With A Pimp And A Prostitute’

 

When Marcia and Greg let their 19-year-old daughter, Cheyenne, move back into their house after kicking her out – for the third time – they made her sign a contract. In the contract, Cheyenne promised to respect members of the household, complete her chores, be home before curfew, and work a full-time job. But just eight weeks after moving back home, her parents claim Cheyenne was back to breaking all the rules. The frustrated couple says they had no choice but to kick their daughter out – again. Now the rebellious teenager lives in a motel with two strangers.

According to Marcia and Greg, one of the strangers, a man named Chris, is their daughter’s pimp.

“My teenage daughter moved out into a hotel, with a pimp and a prostitute,” says a horrified Marcia. “She told me she was going to go stay with some –quote unquote- ‘friends’ and they were going to help her find a job doing massages at a motel.”

Her parents believe Cheyenne is prostituting herself, as well, and they say they’re concerned for her safety. Marcia says “[Cheyenne] always says, ‘It’s a lifestyle, it’s just the way it is’ … Well, it’s not. It’s not a safe lifestyle!”

“People that go to get a massage in a motel – these are seedy people,” adds Greg.

Cheyenne denies she’s doing anything wrong. “I’m not a prostitute because I don’t have sex with anybody for money. I simply give a relaxing massage – with a ‘happy ending.’” “It’s not like I’m lying on them naked, or anything like that. I’m 19 years old; I’m an adult. If I want to give massages to people, I should be allowed to do that without any judgment.”

Man Denies Pimping Out Teenager, Claims He’s Helping Her

Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne’s parents say they kicked her out of their house for not following their rules. Now, the self-described masseuse shares a motel room with new friends, Chris and Brooke. The pair was recently arrested in a prostitution sting. They admit taking Cheyenne in and helping her learn how to work giving massages.

Cheyenne’s roommate Brooke says she and Chris were looking for another girl to work with them. Brooke says she is the one who trained Cheyenne in the work they perform. “I’m taking care of Cheyenne in this business.”

“Cheyenne was going to be sleeping on the street,” says Chris, the man Cheyenne’s parents have accused of being their daughter’s pimp. “Her mom kicked her out with two dollars in her pocket.” Chris accuses, saying he felt sorry for Cheyenne, and after hearing how her mother reportedly treated her, opened his arms and life up to the teen.

Chris says he is “definitely not” Cheyenne’s pimp and has never forced either of the girls to do anything they didn’t want to do on their own. Chris says he explained to Cheyenne the lifestyle before she ever moved in.
