Proud single mother who lived in poverty now pays £110 a week for her sex slave

Poverty-stricken single mother Carrol Hanson, 38, is cheating on her lonely sex slave by spending up to £110 a week to pay her rent.

The low-paid cleaner – who already lives in foster care – met 22-year-old Kevin after she became pregnant.

But she has been facing the possibility of losing her daughter Saffron because she is in a relationship with another man.

Under the family court’s orders, Carrol has been allowed by the local council to spend £12,000 a year on a carer to look after Saffron.

The private house she lives in is a nightmare as her partner wants to move out to rebuild his life – and never returns after visiting.

Carrol, who has lived alone since her ex-husband divorced her three years ago, is desperate to support her daughter but feels they can’t afford to live together.

The Leeds matron is so desperate to see Saffron grow up that she has turned to sex work to help her live – but says Kevin looks after the finances and mind.

She said: “He tells me to do it all but I can’t stand him. I’ve got a granddaughter and I’d love to have a son – I’ve had every boy I could wish for.

“I left a very difficult man who abused me and I left him a few years ago. That’s when I met Kevin. I had been thinking about committing suicide when I met him.

“He seems to be my only hope but I don’t want to be responsible for supporting his family.

“He’s been reading rubbish stories and he told me, ‘I’m going to make you a star’.

“It’s been very difficult since they moved in and they no longer want me in the property.

“She said it was the worst thing she’d ever done. She thinks I should stay but I don’t want to live without her or be responsible for everything she does.”

Kevin claimed his mother was bipolar but Carrol, who has battled the illness for years, refutes that.

She said: “I know him as a child but I’ve never been that kind of relationship with him. I don’t feel I could tell him the same stories to him I’ve told me since he was 13.

“I’m not so concerned about living on my own as I am about my daughter. I have to choose between what is best for my child and what I can afford to do.

“I try to make everything legal but I know they have other plans and it won’t last.

“I’m not going to end up like a lot of other mums who blame themselves for their plight. They’ll just blame me and say ‘well, I had two choices – to kill myself or work.’ “I just thought if it’s to happen I’m going to have to make the most of my situation because I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
