“If you can possibly believe this, on May 7 Child Protective Services showed up at my home. They questioned my husband and I, they questioned my child without me present, they searched our home,” Graham said outside her salon on Friday. “And I’ve never expected such a violent, aggressive, vindictive thing could have ever been done to me or my family.”
