A New Jersey cheerleader and honor student is throwing an epic tantrum and suing her parents after claiming they threw her out of the house, took her car and cut her off financially when she turned 18.
Rachel Canning, is currently living with her best friend's family, who are also bankrolling the lawsuit. She's demanding that her parents pay her $5306 private Catholic high school tuition, her living and transportation costs, a college fund, and over $12000 in legal costs. She claims that even though she's 18, her parents should pay because she's an "unemancipated student."
I cannot imagine under any circumstance whatsoever suing my parents. All kids and parents have disagreements (myself included) at that age - but suing your parents because you were unwilling to follow the rules in their house? Not cool.
