Why didn't we think of this?!
JK! We actually kinda feel for the girl….
18-year-old Rachel Canning, an honor student at Morris Catholic High in New Jersey, is suing her parents because she said they won’t pay for her college tuition.
Things got a little bit hairy when they gave her an ultimatum, telling her that she needs to get rid of her boyfriend or she has to leave.
She ended up running away from home, moving in with her attorney John Inglesino, and officially filed a lawsuit against her parents. He himself has shelled out $12,000 on funding the court battle between the two parties.
Her dad, Sean Canning, explained the situation, saying the money is there for her, but she won't listen to the family rules, saying:
"Living in our house, there's very few rules. There's minor chores. There's curfews – when I say curfew, it's usually after 11 o'clock at night."
Sooo, even though they can afford her school, it just comes down to her following the rules.
They were set to be in court today, but despite who wins, it seems that nobody wins here. :(
