Model Fakes Attack in Twisted Attempt to Get Her Boyfriend Back

Being dumped sucks. No one likes it. And yet we all experience it at least once. When it does happen, it's all up to us how we handle it. Some people go a little bonkers and begin stalking the dumper -- as if that will help matters. Others take it even further. Take Kayla Earl. The beautiful 19-year-old brunette says she's a model, and she's auditioning for America's Next Top Model. But beauty doesn't always mean you've got your head on straight -- and apparently Kayla doesn't. She was found by a sheriff's deputy passed out in a graveyard with a Walmart bag over her head. In the hospital, she said that a man had attacked her as she visited the grave of a friend. But it turns out the truth was even more sordid.

After cops reviewed cellphone records, watched surveillance video, and poked holes in Kayla's story -- she reportedly confessed the truth. She had made the whole thing up.

To get her ex-boyfriend back.

Said a detective on the case:

She even said she put the bag on her head to make it look like someone tried to suffocate her. She is going through some personal problems. Between that and wanting attention, it turns out none of this happened.

Nope, it turns out that Kayla was trying to lure back her ex by stoking sympathy with her "I was attacked in a graveyard" story. Because that's so attractive.

Look, I'm not going to poke fun of Kayla because she is obviously a disturbed young woman in a lot of pain. I think we all go through times where we feel out of control and helpless and we're tempted to play the victim card, hoping that will solve all of our problems.

It doesn't. In fact, it just creates more.

If a man gets back together with you out of sympathy, how are you supposed to hang on to him? By creating episodes of victimhood all of the time? Are you going to get fake attacked every time it looks like your BF wants to bail again? Are you going to bring up your attack every time your BF and you get into a fight? Too many people use the victim card by doing everything from threatening suicide to faking injuries or attacks or even rapes to keep people bound to them through sympathy and guilt. Or merely for the attention!

It's not fair. It's not right. That's manipulation. And why would you want to be with someone who is not with you freely, but out of some sense of obligation? That will only last for so long. And it's not real love. It's pity.

That said, it's so wrong to cry rape or attack if it didn't happen. So many women are sexually assaulted for REAL and not believed. It's stories like Kayla's that make it difficult for all women who are truly assaulted.

But remember -- if you need to make up stories, lie, manipulate, or use threats, then that is not the relationship for you. That is not what relationships should be built on. And when they are, they always come crumbling down.

Have you ever done anything to get an ex back that you're ashamed of?

Once. I slept with him when he had a girlfriend... we were in high school. We dated for 2 1/2 years adn I was the one that broke things off. About a year later and dealing with an adbuive guy I realized I made the mistake and went to go see him.  He made the first move but till this day I feel horrible. We continued to date a year after that but broke up when I realized he was nothing but a cheater. 

We're still kind of friends 8 years later but I haven't seen him for several years.. We only text every once in a while.

When I was 16 my boyfriend broke up with me and started dating my friend. One weekend a group of my friends and myself were meeting up at the mall the group included them so my bestfriends hot cousin came with us and pretended to be my boyfriend to make him jealous... it worked... me and my ex ended up sneaking away from the group and making out in the arcade and I did not feel the slightest bit guilty cause any true friend of mine woudnt have dated my ex knowing how I felt about him.

I don't understand how the above comments have anything to do with faking an attack to get a boy/ girl back. Regardless, it's a sick way to go about trying to 'win' them back.

I know a woman who faked an acid attack, yes threw acid on her self and burned herself so her girlfriend would take her back, She also started a fire where we all worked so she would be first on the scene to "save" animals ( we worked at an animal hospital at the time). So she would look like a hero. She also threw her girlfriends dog in a lake and then went to "rescue" it. The girlfriend stayed with her and last I heard they adopted a child together..sad sad outcome.....The girlfriend was to scared to leave her.

Alyssa, if you read the entire article, there is a question at the end. "Have you ever done anything to get an ex back that you're ashamed of?" The previous comments were in answer to that question.

If you're referring to the fact that their responses are nowhere near as bad as faking an attack, I think that's pretty obvious. Most people don't go to such extreme lengths which is why this case is receiving attention.

They don't have to have anything to do with faking an attack to get someone back. The question asked "have you ever done something you're ASHAMED of to get someone back?" I don't understand why you even made a comment at all Miss Alyssa :(

I guess its a good thing she has looks because she has no brains. Unfortunately for her looks fade rather quickly.

i have a male friend who dated a girl like that. she was the most manipulative, annoying girl any of us had ever met. she cried rape one time, and when he realized she was lying and distanced himself, she claimed she had been in a terrible car accident and was in a coma. she said she woke up with amnesia, but when she saw his name in her phone, she couldn't remember who he was, but "something" told her that she loved him, so she kept calling him, trying to put the pieces back together. it was a total mess. needless to say, it was all a ruse, and he ended up getting a restraining order.

I used to be friends with a girl who cried pregnancy every time a guy broke up with her....the last one that I witnessed (because I stopped hanging out with her once I figured out her scheme) was when she dated one guy, he broke up with her so she tackled his best friend and when he broke up with her she claimed she was pregnant and didn't know who the father was, then she had cancer and had 6 months to live, and then she had a miscarriage on a friday night in the hospital complete with a d&c, but managed to be in and out within 45 minutes to catch the movie we all had planned for that night. Oh, this was 9 years ago...she's still alive and kick'n, due to the fact that she never had cancer.

My ex was the one who was very manipulative. He would make up lil stories to try and get me back. The last straw was when I was in a car accident and he didn't show up. The one time I needed him and he wasn't there
