HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (CBS) – Julianne claims her daughter’s boyfriend, Leighton, has “lied his way through life” and is turning her beautiful daughter, Mariah, into a liar and a con artist.
She claims Leighton lied about being kidnapped, faked cancer and convinced a friend to give him $70,000 for a business that never opened. She claims he even created a crowdfunding page to raise money to treat his alleged cancer.
Julianne also blames him for getting her daughter, Mariah, addicted to drugs. But Mariah says Leighton absolutely did not get her addicted to drugs — he just helped her because she has “bad veins.”
Leighton and Mariah are pointing the finger at Julianne and claim she is the one who first introduced her daughter to alcohol and marijuana. Leighton says Julianne is very controlling and manipulative and constantly tries to break them up because she despises him.
In a tense in-studio showdown, Julianne faces off against Mariah and Leighton.
Are Mariah and Leighton ready to get help? Why was hotel security called before the show, and what happened after Leighton and Mariah arrived at the studio before the taping?
