Aubrey Ireland, 21-Year Old College Student, Obtains Restraining Order Against Parents

by at . Comments

Aubrey Ireland didn't want it to come to this, but the 21-year old student at College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati says she had no choice:

She has been awarded a civil stalking restraining order against her parents.

A judge has ruled that David and Julie Ireland must remain at least 500 feet away from their only child because Aubrey says their protectiveness has spiraled out of control.

"They basically thought that they were paying for my college tuition and living expenses that they could tell me what to do," Ireland told ABC News.

For example, she alleges her parents installed monitoring software on her computer and her phone; would show up announced for meetings with her and her department heads; and have accused her of drug use and promiscuity.

"My mom has always been very overly involved," Ireland says. "I would have to get on Skype all the time to show them that I was in my dorm room, or there were nights I had to leave my Skype on all night and my mom would watch me basically sleep."

David and Julie Ireland disagree, of course. They demand a refund on the $66,000 they have paid toward Aubry's college tuition and they believe, according to Julie, that they are "not bothering her."

Aubrey adds that her parents have been diagnosed with co-dependency disorder and:

"I knew that they were holding me back emotionally, mentally, and professionally and that it got to the point where that was basically my last option."

Just because parents pay for things doesn't make them fit parents. Good luck to you, Aubrey. I cut my parents out of my life 6 years ago, and I had to call the police to get them off my property then too. The 911 operator thought I was joking when I said my parents were beating on my doors and windows trying to get into my house because I wouldn't take my narcissstic mother's phone calls. I was 34 years old, married, and with children and had cut her off, and she drove 600 miles to basically ambush me with her visit to "check up" on me because she decided my husband was "holding me hostage" and keeping me from her. Anyway, that's not your problem. Good luck to you, dear.

I would highly recommend reading about narcissistic parents, not to mention how to prepare yourself against their "smear campaigns" they like to do when you go up against them.

I am just cracking up that "Molly Santucci" leaves all these nasty comments on the article but essentially says "hey my brother exchanged drugs for sex" from the poor girl in the article. Good job outing your brother as a drug user, drug dealer, and someone who exchanges drugs for sexual favors while not actually do anything against Aubrey but engaging in documented LIBEL against her. If you do not know the status of this girl's sexual health for example and state you do in such a comment that is LIBEL and you could be charged with such. All you've done is exhibit the poor character of you and your brother.

Not libel since it is all true. He goes to UC and works on the sets for the plays and musicals and he met her there. He sold to her for the last 1 1/2 yrs. And what do you care? Not like any of you losers know her. Aubrey is what she is.

I agree that Molly really is embarrassing herself and family. Unfortunately her statements are not automatically libelous. Not only must a plaintiff in such a suit prove that it is not true, but that harm was caused. It's very difficult that someone's statement(s) is/are causing actual harm. Ireland could never bring such a suit. She sounds like she has enough on her plate besides worrying about internet trolls.

Thanks for the further enlightenment. I'd like to think people who say such things online with their real identity get some karmic justice...at least future employers can easily see it all.

She could easily prove in court that she doesn't have a STI for example and if this person claims her brother and Ireland are "friends" for lack of another term, and can prove the user is who she claims (not all that hard)...then she could claim it is damaging her name further (what with all publicity coverage). I'm sure she has her plate full with the other things, but you never know when someone might be sensitive to people claiming she exchanges sex for drugs or has an STI. While it projects terribly on the comment poster and her brother (I found names and social networking easily but don't roll that way), it does do damage to the girl in the article. I would think proving someone who says they have a social connection is engaging in libel or slander would be relatively easier. Either way, it definitely just looks bad for "Molly" and for her brother. I'm more disturbed by her age and profession and still posting comments like this and others about other subjects if it all adds up from some basic google searches. It's not hard to determine who is more credible. :/

Lo - why do you assume that it is not true? You don't even know this girl, I do having met her before when visiting my brother at UC. He works on the sets for all her musicals for the past 1 1/2 yrs.

Unfortunately in a court of law, actually proving libel is very difficult. Proving she never had an STI and never did drugs are not that easy. Molly didn't give enough specifics, so negative drug tests now, and "some" medical records in the past doesn't prove Aubrey never did or had those issues as far as courts are concerned. Unfortunately, the court would need, to a resonable degree of certainty, that what Molly said was actually completely lacking in truth and that she said those things without properly finding out the truth. All Molly has to do is say, "I simply said I heard all of this from her brother." It is despicable, but it is true. You can't go after the brother either. That'd be hearsay. Both the brother and Molly would serve as reasonable doubt for the other. Even if Aubrey could prove Molly lied, the second problem is proving harm. There is no way she could do that. There is no monetary harm; emotional pain and suffering, due to a few online posts, could never be proven. Something like dismissal from her school, where her school claims that the dismissal was from posts online about her "activities" WOULD be harm. That is never going to happen though. Libel really is when stakes are much higher. When news outlets print false claims by people who can really prove that harm led to emotional or monetary distress. Suing a troll online generally doesn't lead to squat. It's hard to prove someone was not simply exorcizing free speech, no matter how wrong what they said was. It's not about "who's likely to be more credible." The burden is on the plaintiff.

I personally know this girl and she really is a whore. She used to buy drugs from my brother till she ran out of money. She offered him sex and he did that a few times until she just owed him way too much and he said she had some kind of weird cold sore looking things all around her vag. Now she tried to hook with with random guys and get them to buy her drugs.

All your comments are doing are stating your brother engages in drug dealing and prostitution, meanwhile opening up yourself for libel charges from Aubrey. Also, your comments imply your brother has had sex with her and she has these supposed sores, so now you have also outed your brother as potentially having herpes. Maybe in your world he even gave herpes to her! So basically you're saying your brother is a drug using, drug dealing, herpes infected prostitution engaging guy. And we can probably all search the web with your name and come up with his. Just want you to keep in mind that you're really only doing yourself and your family a disservice.

Not oding myself a disservice. I am not the drug using prostitute. Aubrey is.

Ah, to be so very young and oblivious. Yes, I was assuming you are using your real name. That's what "presumably" means. Well done. 5 or 8 years you say? Does that mean when you're 18 or 21? Because you seem like you're 13. By the way, they are not a "mythical future employer." They're ACTUAL future employers. Lo is right. You may not regret what you say online now, but you may someday. You are too young to predict the consequences of your actions now. Edit: I had to reply to this message--for some reason the reply button is not showing up for the message to which I actually was responding.

You ARE doing a disservice to yourself describing these types of matters and using such terms. Your name is easily able to be searched, linking you to other comments such as one from May about engaging in gay-bashing, saying you would. I'm going out on a limb and assuming its also you, linked to same profile image. How hard is it for employers to do the same? No matter what you do or don't know about this girl, these comments will end up affecting your future. You should think about that to some degree. I wouldn't want to lose a job over something like that, if it came down to two equally qualified candidates and one came up with the comment history you have...I'd choose the other.

Why is this even news? Usually we hear of people getting emancipated or getting restraining orders from their parents when they're already famous.

Sounds to me like EVERYONE in this family handles things poorly. She got a friggin' RESTRAINING ORDER against them?? They installed MONITORING software on her gear?? Overreact much, everyone? Why not just stop paying for your spoiled daughter's education, forcing her to move home, if ur so worried about her? I guess u shoulda taught her some boundaries and responsibilities, eh, before foisting her upon the rest of society... Pathetic, the whole lot of 'em!

I agree with Kelly. They probably worry about you, you selfish woman! With all the horrible things in the world, and being their only child, they would worry about you being on your own. It will only be when you have a child of your own, that maybe you will understand.

@ nina, pretty ballerina

Right, so at 21 you'd be okay with your parents showing up at school telling officials that you were mentally ill, that they were gunna commit you and that it would attract "Huge publicity." As well as monitoring your computer and tracking your location via your phone? As well as accusing you of being a drug addict and a whore? And forcing you TO SLEEP WITH YOUR WEB CAM ON SO THEY COULD WATCH YOU?!
All these sound like *perfectly* normal actions of a parent who is *concerned*....
Except where they sound *EXACTLY* like a crazy boyfriend who stalking your ass. If this was her boyfriend people would be lining up to bash the guy themselves, but it's somehow okay because they are her parents? If anything that makes it worse!
