Gypsy Rose Blanchard's story was first told in the 2017 documentary 'Mommy Dead and Dearest.' 

The documentary followed Gypsy’s mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, who abused her daughter — physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Investigators believe that Dee Dee had Munchausen syndrome by proxy, which is a psychological disorder where a caretaker makes others believe that their child (or the person they are taking care of) is ill to receive attention.

Dee Dee claimed Gypsy was not only vision and hearing impaired, but that she suffered from asthma, epilepsy, Down syndrome, and more. She went as far as stating Gypsy was diagnosed with leukemia and muscular dystrophy, including being paralyzed from the waist down, claiming she needed a wheelchair.

According to medical records shown in the 2017 docuseries, Dee Dee took her daughter to the hospital over 100 times from 2005 to 2014.
