The Shocking Truth About Gypsy Rose Blanchard and Nick Godejohn's Love Story

Gypsy Rose Blanchard may be happily engaged, but her former love has yet to move on. 

Four years after the murder of Gypsy's mother Dee Dee Blanchard gripped the nation's attention, revealing a twisted tale of Munchausen by proxy and matricide almost too shocking to believe, the killer is telling his side of the story—and he's making it a love story. 

In Oxygen's new special Killer Couples: Gypsy Rose & Nick: A Love to Kill For, Nick Godejohn gives his first interview since being sentenced to life in prison and the murder once again making headlines thanks to Hulu's hit series The Act, and he's set to reveal intimate details about his relationship with Gypsy Rose and the brief time they spent together after planning and carrying out her mother's death. 

Though he's set to spend the rest of his life behind bars and Gypsy has spoken out against him (and has since moved on and is engaged to her new boyfriend), Nick still called his former girlfriend his "soul mate" in a sneak peek at the Oxygen special, airing tonight. 

Prior to Nick, the now 27-year-old Gypsy's experience with boys was near non-existent, given her mother's strict rules and careful watch over her life, enduring years of medical child abuse and being confined to a wheelchair. 

But that didn't mean she wasn't interested in dating. 

"She would show interest in different boys and try to ask me advice on how do you approach them, how to you kiss a boy," Gypsy's neighbor and close friend Aleah Woodmansee told ABC News, but said Dee Dee would immediately try to shut the girl talk down. "It was like, 'My daughter was the mentality of a child, like you're talking to her about teenage girl things.'"

In 2011, she attempted to run away to be with an older man she met at a sci-fi convention. Dee Dee eventually caught up with her, and according to Gypsy in the HBO documentary, told her, "If you ever try to do that again, I'm going to smash your fingers with a hammer." She also destroyed her phone and computer, with Gypsy alleging she was also chained to her bed and Dee Dee put bells on the doors.

But Gypsy was still able to secretly access the computer, even setting up a private Facebook account using the name Emma Rose to send messages to Aleah.

"This is my personal account my mom is still overprotective so she don't, know about this account," Gypsy wrote in October 2014 to her neighbor.
