The Turpin siblings watched Justin Bieber

– I do not know where we would have been if I did not look at Justin Bieber. I started to realize that there was a whole other world out there … I wanted to experience it, says Jordan, who was inspired by the pop star and secretly started uploading clips of himself singing in the bathroom at night.

One day she received a comment on one of the clips. The commenter asked why she was always indoors and awake at night.

– I told him that I did not go to school, was not allowed to be in the backyard or the front of the house and was always kept indoors. I told them how we eat and that we are not allowed to leave our beds.

“This is so liberating. This is life”

Today, Jordan is 21 years old and her sister Jennifer is 33 years old. In the interview, Jennifer talks about the first moment she felt free after being locked up in the “house of terror”:

– At the hospital. When music was playing, I stood up, made sure there were not a lot of things on the floor and then I danced.

The first place Jordan took two of its sisters was a park. She says that she was excited because she could “smell the air and the grass”.

– I just thought “how can heaven be better than this? My God, this is so liberating. This is life”.
