A mother earned a lot of money by pimping out her son’s girlfriend for sex.

The 55-year-old mother Tokyo, Japan, who was not named, was arrested on suspicion of forcing her son’s girlfriend into prostitution.

The woman used Twitter to solicit men to have sex with her son’s 17-years-old girlfriend more than 20 times, according to the police.

The teenager ran away from her own home and had moved in with her 18-year-old boyfriend and his mother, the suspect, in Nerima Ward.

The mother is accused of forcing the girl to have sex with men and hand over the money as payment for living at the home.

She was arrested and faces charges of child prostitution and child pornography.

Authorities said that the mother earned about 700,000 yen (over $6,000) in total by arranging for the girl to have sexual encounters with men.

The incident came to light when the girl, now 18, moved out of her boyfriend’s home and reported the matter to the police.

The mother denied the allegations against her, saying: “the girl did it on her own,” according to police.
