Ariyanna claims that her mother, Cornelia, resorted to extreme measures in parenting her and her sister when they were children.
“I was, like, 12 or 13 when she first locked me in the attic. I would be up there for days. She would only let me out twice a day,” Ariyanna claims. “I had to use the bathroom in the bucket.”

Cornelia says Ariyanna lies. She says she locked her daughter in her bedroom and never made her use a bucket as a bathroom. “Ariyanna was always defiant, disrespectful,” Cornelia says. “I would call her a little bitch, ungrateful, a spoiled brat. I would spank her with a yardstick.”
