On March 12, Rachel Canning’s family attorney announced that the 18-year-old high school cheerleader returned home to her parents’ home after suing them for refusing to pay her college tuition fees.
Sean and Elizabeth Canning welcomed their daughter Rachel Canning, 18, back into their Lincoln Park, New Jersey home. Rachel moved out of her parents home the day before she turned 18 and on March 5, she took her parents to court for refusing to pay her bills and school tuition.
Rachel Canning Goes Home
After temporarily staying with a friend’s family, Rachel “has returned home and reunited with her parents and siblings. Her return home is not contingent on any financial and/or other considerations,” Sean and Elizabeth’s attorney, Angelo Sarno, said in a statement.[hl_ndn videoid=”25685341″][hl_ndn videoid=”25684810″]
Rachel made headlines on March 5 when she brought her parents to the New Jersey State Superior Court, requesting a case against them that would require them to pay child support, her private school tuition, her tuition to Duke University and her legal fees. She was turned down by the judge.
Details on her return home will be announced at 1:30 PM EST in a press conference outside the Snyder & Sarno law offices in Roseland, New Jersey.
Rachel Claimed Parents Wouldn’t Let Her Back Home
In Rachel’s court documents, she claimed that her parents would not let her stay at her home unless she broke up with her boyfriend at the time, Lucas Kitzmiller. She also made claims — which her parents strongly denied ever happened — that her father had mistreated her, and was “inappropriately affectionate” with her.
Both Sean and Elizabeth were heartbroken by their daughter’s case against them, but did admit that they felt Lucas was a bad influence on Rachel, saying that she had come home drunk in the middle of the night after they went out.
We’re so happy that Rachel has returned home to her parents! Are you surprised she went home, HollywoodLifers?
