Gypsy Rose Blanchard opens up concerning the sophisticated childhood within the first installment of Lifetime’s The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard. The newly-released 32-year-old makes a surprising accusation towards her grandfather, Dee Dee Blanchard’s father Claude Pitre Sr. Gypsy alleges that her grandfather “sexually abused” and “molested” her when she and Dee Dee have been residing with him for a time.
“I was being sexually abused, molested. My grandpa would take me out of my wheelchair and bring me into a closet or the shack that was back behind their house where he would do woodworking, and he would perform sexual acts on me,” Gypsy claims. “He would make me touch him. He would touch me. At 9, I don’t think that I knew that it was wrong. But then, my grandfather told me not to tell anyone.”
She provides, “I didn’t want him to get in trouble, so I just kept quiet.” Later, a producer asks Claude about Gypsy’s allegations towards him. He denies his granddaughter’s claims.
“Oh, no. No, I never [abused her],” he says. “That’s the first I heard of it. We would always play together and always do stuff together and stuff like that.”
Claude goes on to make a disturbing allegation of his personal. “She [Gypsy] would try to touch me,” Claude alleges. “I’d say no. Don’t do that. She was the one that was trying… to touch me and I’d say no. Don’t do that. She started that when she was about 4 years old… She was trying to touch me.”
Gypsy fires again at her grandfather and stands by her reality. “That just confirms that, like, I want nothing to do with him,” she says. “I would have had more forgiveness in my heart had he just told the truth.”
Evans Pitre, Gypsy’s uncle, weighs in about Gypsy’s allegations. “No, I don’t think that happened,” Evans says concerning the alleged abuse. “That was just probably taught to her by her mom.”
Gypsy responds to her grandfather’s denial. “There is no part of me that questions whether that happened or not,” Gypsy stresses. “This 100% happened. And he can take it to his grave if he wants to, but the one person that is not going to visit him at his grave is me.”
Gypsy was launched from jail on December 28 after serving 8 years in jail for her function in her mom’s homicide. Gypsy, a sufferer of Munchausen syndrome by proxy, conspired to kill Dee Dee with ex-boyfriend Nicholas Godejohn, who dedicated the act. Following her launch from jail, Gypsy is wanting ahead to beginning a brand new chapter together with her husband Ryan Anderson.
The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard is airing over the course of three nights. The subsequent 2 elements of the docuseries will air on January 6 and seven on Lifetime.
