Kristina’s parents divorced when she was six years old, in 1984. They had a tumultuous relationship, fueled by their addiction and criminal activities. Kristina rarely saw her father, who was constantly on the run from the law or in prison. Her mother was also arrested several times for drug-related charges and spent several years behind bars. Kristina was left in the care of her grandparents, Frederick and Ermine Jung, who tried to provide her with a stable and loving environment. She also lived with her aunt Marie for some time.

Kristina grew up without proper parental guidance and support. She missed her father and longed for his attention. She also resented her mother for abandoning her and choosing drugs over her. She struggled with trust issues and emotional problems. She had a hard time making friends and fitting in at school. She felt lonely and isolated from the world.
