(Scroll down for video) A family was shocked and devastated to learn that their mother and grandmother was prostituting herself.
85-year-old Sheila Vogel-Coupe, looks like any other grandmother. However, she became known as the oldest prostitute in Britain.
The grandma’s job became known after her granddaughter Katie Waissel, also known by her stage name Katie Vogel, was featured on The X Factor show. She is also a singer and songwriter.
“Someone blew the whistle,” Vogel-Coupe said after her lifestyle was exposed.
Vogel-Coupe’s job title is “escort.” She makes £250 ($420) an hour. She began her new career when she was struggling with loneliness after the death of her second husband, Noel Coupe, in 2004. She was also involved in an adult video.
Since her work as a prostitute was exposed, Vogel-Coupe has been disowned by most of her family members.
“My family members decided not to talk to me except for my daughter, Josie, and my grandson Danny, who were not so judgmental,” she said.
Vogel-Coupe, who is a great-grandmother, wants her family back. She wants her family to stop fighting, stop being judgmental and stop meddling in her private life.
