Desiree says she and her daughter Adrienne have a contentious relationship.
“Adrienne is manipulative and bossy. Adrienne is a person that likes to control every single thing around her,” Desiree says, claiming that her daughter bullies her. “She realized that she could get me arrested just by calling the police and get me taken away, because she knows I’m on probation.”
