“Michael is isolating her and she’s spending less and less time with her family,” says Cheryl who claims Stefanie’s boyfriend is “brainwashing” her daughter. She continues, “All she wants to do is make Michael happy – but she’s making the wrong person happy.”

Stefanie claims her mother doesn’t care about Stefanie being in relationships that aren’t with her. Cheryl denies the claim. She says she wants her daughter to find someone with whom she can have a “healthy relationship.”
