In 1943, their parents won the custody battle of the five sisters. However, the sisters claimed that they were deprived and abused by their parents during their stay with them. Three of the surviving sisters even claimed that their father sexually abused them when they were teenagers.
As a result of years of exploitation and abuse, the sisters suffered from personal and psychological problems like bipolar disorder, alcoholism and marriage problems as adults.
