Seriously? If this was my child- well, I just can’t even fathom the entitlement this little brat feels to use her grandparents money to sue her own parents:

From the article:

A judge has ordered divorced parents to pay more than $16,000 toward their 21-year-old daughter’s college tuition – even though she hasn’t spoken to them for two years.

Caitlyn Ricci from Cherry Hills, New Jersey, sued her estranged biological parents Maura McGarvey and Michael Ricci for her fees at Temple University in Philadelphia and won.

The decision handed down by a Camden County judge meant they had a deadline of midnight on Thursday to complete the payment.

However the pair insists they are not handing over any money and are planning to appeal.

Ricci, described as a ‘rebellious teen’, left her family two years ago after she was allegedly thrown out by her mother.

She then moved in with her grandparents who are now paying for the lawyer who is suing their own son Michael – Caitlyn’s father.

For two years Maura tried to reach out to Caitlyn – sending her letters and writing her poems – but she never heard back.

They eventually tried to file for an emancipation but the day before Mothers’ Day last year, papers from Caitlyn’s attorneys arrived at their home.

Her parents claim she also purchased a car when she left the family home and subsequently demanded the money through her lawyers.

Maura and Michael believe their daughter is just trying to get money out of them, however her grandparents insist they should pay up.

Angela Ricci, Caitlyn’s maternal grandmother, told 6 ABC’s Action News: ‘They just don’t want to pay because they have to pay by the middle of the week. The balance they owe. This has been going on for two years.

Her grandfather, who told the station he would not divulge the reasons behind the fractious relationship, has said that if they don’t pay up, he believes they should go to jail.

Ricci’s parents’ marriage only lasted two-and-a-half years after they fell in love as youngsters. But they decided to come to an arrangement in a bid to give their daughter could the best life they could hope for.

Give me a break, folks. How is it any of the courts business to order parents to pay for their adult child’s education? She is an adult, and needs to be responsible for herself. Quit being a spoiled little diva and pay for your own future, girl. By the way – call your mom. You aren’t doing yourself any favors by cutting your parents out.

What do you think? Is she a spoiled brat or should mom and dad foot the bill? Discuss.
