Gypsy Rose Blanchard sent her ex-boyfriend chilling video before he killed her mother

Gypsy-Rose filmed herself in chilling video which 'shocked her legal team'

Before the death of her mother, Clauddine 'Dee Dee' Blanchard, Gypsy-Rose Blanchard send her then boyfriend Nick Godejohn a chilling video.

After serving seven years of her 10 year prison sentence, Gypsy Rose was released from prison - serving 85 percent of her sentence.

Blanchard's mother was found stabbed to death in her home in Missouri in June 2015.

The now 32-year-old was initially sentenced in 2016 after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in connection to her mother's death. Godejohn was given a life sentence without possibility of parole.

And in her upcoming series, The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard, she reveals that she'd filmed a video for Godejohn before the murder of her mother.

Blanchard claimed that her mother had mentally and physically abused her since she was a child.

When taking the stand, she told the court that her mother had told everyone that she was terminally ill and forced her to use a wheelchair and an oxygen tank, and also took her to doctors to be treated for conditions that she did not have, such as leukaemia.

Blanchard says that she was a she was a victim of 'Munchausen syndrome by proxy'.

According to The Cleveland Clinic, Munchausen syndrome is defined as 'when someone tries to get attention and sympathy by falsifying, inducing, and/or exaggerating an illness'.

Adding: "They lie about symptoms, sabotage medical tests (like putting blood in their urine), or harm themselves to get the symptoms.

"Diagnosing and treating Munchausen syndrome is difficult because of the person’s dishonesty."

In the case of Dee Dee Blanchard, experts believe she suffered from the condition but 'by proxy' - making her daughter appear to be ill.

After years of the alleged abuse, Blanchard and Godejohn, who she met online, decided on a plan to kill her mother - which she revealed in an interview was the 'only way out'.

Blanchard says that the video is 'something I never revealed before to anyone except for attorneys'.

She said: "I made a video for Nick, like a walkthrough of what the house layout looked like, what my mother's bedroom looked like, because he would be walking into her room in the dark.

"I made the stabbing motion because I was high all of the time on pain pills.

"The side effects of those create this disconnection to reality."

The footage - which will be shown in the docu-series - even shocked her lawyers at the time.

"One of the things that was presented was this cell phone video Gypsy had taken and it shows her walking through her mother's bedroom and she points at the mattress and makes a stabbing motion with her hand." attorney Mike Stanfield said.

"The video, that was a very hard pill to swallow.

"We had no other case to look at, we had no precedent for this and we also weren't sure that there was even a defense we could raise.

"If we went to trial and we lost, Gypsy would die in prison, she would spend the rest of her life behind bars."
