In an upcoming docuseries, Gypsy Rose Blanchard claims that she was molested as a child by her grandfather, who denies the allegation in a particularly shocking way.

The claim is made in Lifetime’s The Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard, which premieres Jan. 5. Gypsy, a victim of Munchausen by proxy, was released from prison last Thursday, having served eight years for the 2015 mu*rder of her abu*sive mother, Dee Dee Blanchard.

Gypsy reiterated her claim that she was abu*sed by her grandfather Claude Pitre , and that the se*xual ab*use went on for about a year.

“I’ve gotten to a point where I can stand on my own two feet and say, this happened to me and I’m not going to let it affect me anymore,” says about the alleged ab*use. “And that’s why I’m talking about it now. And I think for me, making it known that it happened might prevent him from doing the same thing to another family member or another child or another person because he’s still alive.”

In the documentary, Pitre was directly asked about the allegation, which he denied — while also making a shocking claim of his own.

“She was the one that was trying to touch me, and I’d say no, don’t do that,” Pitre claims in the documentary. “She started doing that when she was about 4 years old.”

When told about her grandfather’s claim, Gypsy tells the interviewing producer that she wants “nothing to do with him.”

In her interview, Gypsy says she was hesitant to tell her mother about the abu*se and that she was 19 when she finally told Dee Dee, 10 years after she said it happened.

“I fully told her everything that happened, and she proceeded to let me know that he had done the same thing to her when she was a child as well,” Gypsy says. “It was hard for us to both come to grips with the fact that we had both been abu*sed by the same person. And I think it makes me wonder what else, what other kind of forms of abu*se did she suffer that I don’t know about?”

Gypsy was released from prison Dec. 28 and was picked up by her husband Ryan Scott Anderson, whom she married in 2022, while still behind bars.

Gypsy’s interviews featured in the upcoming Lifetime series were filmed shortly before her release. She had been in prison since 2016, when she pleaded guilty to mu*rdering her mother, and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

In her court testimony, Gypsy said she talked Nicholas Godejohn, whom she met online, into ki*lling her mother. Godejohn was convicted of first-degree mu*rder in 2019 and sentenced to life without parole, according to court records. Godejohn and Gypsy have since separated.

Dee Dee, who had convinced people in her life that her daughter was terminally ill, is said to have subjected Gypsy to painful medical treatments that were never needed.
