“She sits in my house all day in her pajamas, watching TV,” claims Aja, who estimates she’s spent close to $100,000 taking care of Janet over the years, paying for everything from food and clothing to vacations, and a cell phone.
Janet says she’s not a mooch. She claims she pays rent, watches her grandkids and helps around the house.
