Identified as a victim of Munchausen by proxy by experts, Gypsy Rose Blanchard is set to be released from Missouri’s Chillicothe Correctional Center on December 28, nearly eight years after conspiring with her former boyfriend to murder her mother.

Scheduled to be released this week, Blanchard has already made plans. She revealed to an entertainment news team, TMZ, that she has purchased tickets for a New Year’s Eve Kansas City Chiefs game, hoping to meet Taylor Swift, who is in a high-profile relationship with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

Originally slated for release in 2026, Blanchard will now be freed after serving 85% of her sentence, as mandated by state law. Additionally, she received credit for the time served during her year in Greene County Jail before entering her guilty plea.

For the second-degree murder of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, in 2016, Blanchard was given a ten-year prison sentence. Dee Dee had tricked medical professionals and others into thinking her daughter was ill.

Allegedly suffering from various health issues since the age of 8, Blanchard used a wheelchair and a feeding tube unnecessarily.

People reported that the deception persisted throughout her childhood, with DeeDee collecting substantial gifts and donations based on false sympathy for Blanchard’s purported health problems.

In addition, a Habitat for Humanity house, Make-a-Wish Foundation backstage passes to Miranda Lambert concerts, and funded Disney World excursions were also given to the Blanchards.

While incarcerated, Blanchard revealed in interviews that she became more defiant during her teen years. Eventually, she joined a dating website, where she met Nicholas Godejohn. The two maintained a secret online relationship for over two years before meeting in person and revealing the romance to Dee Dee, who rejected it.

Blanchard invited Godejohn over on June 9, 2015, after her mother had gone to bed. He attacked her while she hid in an adjacent room within earshot.

In the days following the slaying, the pair took to social media to announce DeeDee’s death. Authorities found her lifeless body on the same day, June 14, revealing she had been stabbed 17 times.

Godejohn was given a life sentence after being found guilty of first-degree murder for carrying out the killing.
