Jenelle Potter was socially awkward and sickly. At the age of 30, she was still living with her parents who controlled every aspect of her life. When she met a well-liked young man, called Bill Payne, she fell head over heels in love. But the feeling was not mutual. When Bill met Billie-Jean Hayworth, he realised that he was ready to settle down with her. A jealous Jenelle could not handle it. When both Bill and Billie-Jean unfriended Jenelle on social media, she took drastic measures to get even with them.
