Gypsy Rose Blanchard released from prison after serving time for mom's murder

On Thursday, , a Missourian who was incarcerated for the murder of her mother Clauddinnea “Dee Dee” Blanchard—who was said to have mistreated her daughter and kept her ill for years—was freed.

In 2015, Gypsy Blanchard and her partner, Nicholas Godejohn, were taken into custody in connection with the stabbing death of “Dee Dee” Blanchard, who was discovered in her Springfield home.

Gypsy Blanchard received a 10-year sentence after entering a guilty plea to second-degree murder.

In 2019, the case became a national media sensation and was even turned into a Hulu streaming series. Patricia Arquette was awarded an Emmy for her role as “Dee Dee” Blanchard in the television series “The Act.”

“Dee Dee” Blanchard is accused of mistreating her daughter for years by making Gypsy and the public believe that she was gravely ill when in fact she wasn't.

The 32-year-old Gypsy Blanchard was raised to believe she had seizures, muscular dystrophy, leukemia, and visual and hearing problems. She had several unnecessary surgeries, was dependent on a feeding tube, and utilized a wheelchair. Gypsy's age was allegedly falsified by “Dee Dee” Blanchard to make her appear younger on paperwork.

Gypsy Blanchard said her mother kept her weak, isolated and dependent on her, and said her mother became more controlling as she got older.

“She physically chained me to the bed and put bells on the doors and told … anybody that I probably would've trusted that I was going through a phase and to tell her if I was doing anything behind her back,” Gypsy Blanchard told ABC News' “20/20” in 2017.

Gypsy Blanchard said she eventually grew more curious about the outside world, and she made a dating profile and began an online relationship with Godejohn.

She said her mother “got jealous, because I was spending a little too much attention on him, and she had ordered me to stay away from him.”

In June 2015, Godejohn stabbed “Dee Dee” Blanchard in her bedroom, he later told police. Godejohn said he wanted to protect his girlfriend.

Godejohn was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.

In 2017, Gypsy Blanchard told “20/20” she felt freer in prison than she did living with her mom.
