HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (CBS) – Twenty-one-year-old Ivey admits the only “job” she’s ever had has been working as an escort, which she claims she is only doing until she can afford a stable home for her and her 4-year-old son.
Ivey says when her mother, Faith, found out she was working as an escort over two years ago, she put her things on the porch of their home and told her she had to leave – but without her son.
Since then, Ivey has moved from house to house and stayed in various hotels where she meets her clients.
Faith says she’s desperate for her daughter to get out of this dangerous lifestyle and step up and stop being a deadbeat mother. According to Faith, a pimp just recently threw Ivey out of a hotel where she was staying last month. That’s when Ivey moved in with her best friend, Olivia, who says she has watched what she calls Faith’s out-of-control parenting for years and believes Faith is to blame for Ivey not having a sense of right and wrong.Watch Dr. Phil today at 3 on 22News.
