A young woman who managed to escape to safety after being brought up in a hellhole home is turning her life around on video streaming giant TikTok.
Jordan Turpin has had a major life transformation after she escaped the horrors of her horrific family home in California where 13 children were starved, beaten and chained to beds by their parents.
She has taken to TikTok to upload fun dance videos and has entirely turned her life around, looking almost unrecognisable.
When she was 17, Jordan escaped her abusive family home through a window and told cops that her siblings were being abused and they lived in filth.
She told the officer that her younger siblings were chained up on their beds in limited vocabulary, as she hadn’t received a proper education or experienced the outside world.
Jordan feared that her parents would “want to kill her” if they realised she had left the family home.
She told ABC News: “It was literally a now or never. If something happened to me, at least I died trying.”
Now, the 21-year-old is continuing her life in freedom and has turned to social media in order to spread positivity.
Jordan has nearly 500,00 followers on TikTok and regularly shares clips of herself dancing in her home or various locations in California. Due to her success, she recently gained a verification status on the app.
Her bio reads: “I love helping others! Love to dance and write songs!”
She said: "To everyone who has followed me or watched my videos, I appreciate you guys so much. I love you guys so much.
"I'm now verified on TikTok and I am so excited. I feel like just doing something exciting. Thank you guys so much."
Her dancing videos have gained millions of views and lots of support from users. Someone said on her last video: “I’m so excited to hear you speak in the future about positive thinking, escaping toxic situations and new beginnings. You will inspire millions!”
Another user commented: “I just want you to know that you have so many people out here who love you.”
Another one added: "Jordan went from being one of the bravest girls (still is) to becoming an internet sensation! God bless you Jordan!!"
While someone commented: "Congratulations on the BLUE!! Hope you are doing well and all your siblings and the sister you did the interviews with u!"
Her parents David and Louise Turpin were sentenced to 25 years in jail after pleading guilty to 14 counts including cruelty to an adult-dependent, child cruelty, torture, and false imprisonment.
