    I would bet she got the restraining order and contacted the media herself to get attention. She sounds like a nutcase too.

    eta- But they aren't her spouse. They are her parents. She doesn't need a restraining order, she needs to quit taking the stuff they provide. My dad was sorta the same way (minus quite a few of the goodies she was given and of course the watching sleep thing). I handed him back the card and payed my own damn rent. That's what normal people do.

    OH!!! And if the school was going to give her a full ride, why the hell was she taking money from them in the first place?

    So, again, if I got a restraining order against my spouse for the same thing I would just be doing it for attention? Not for safety?

    She didn't need one. And wants to be an actress. If you contacted the media (how else would this have made international news), then yes, it would be for attention. Again, I've dealt with a parent who thought he could control me with money. After I turned 18, I Controlled how much he could control and when it got to be too much, I quit taking the money. That's all the nutjob had to do.

    Why do you say she didn't need one?

    Do you not think if she just said "To heck with this, mom and dad" they wouldn't have potentially come after her?

    Again, if all is true I don't think her parents just turned controlling. They would have been controlling her her whole life. Maybe she felt like she would be in danger. That part of the story we don't know.

    My dad is bat**** insane and if I felt like I needed a restraining order I would get one. I would not call the news to inform them of my win though.

    I think she's a drug addict like most of the comments in the articles I read said and she's crazy. Along with her parents.

    Using the court system because you can't tell someone no when you are using a laptop however many miles away they were from each other shows how insane she is.
