A pregnant woman who worked as a stripper dumped her boyfriend after he asked her to sell the flat she bought with her earnings to fund his start-up. He later demanded majority custody of their unborn child so that he didn't have to pay child support and she would end up paying him. She's now seeking sole custody of the child and is going to therapy after receiving overwhelming support from Reddit users. Her sister, who sided with the ex-boyfriend, is trying to get her to fix things with him. Read on for the full story.
