'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.

“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.”
