A U.S. Army doctor recently returned home from Afghanistan to discover his daughter, a student at Duke University, is partially funding her education by appearing in adult films.

Dr. Kevin Weeks found out the news shortly after arriving home in Spokane, Wash. following a deployment abroad, the Daily Mail reports.

Miriam Weeks, 18, is a freshman at Duke and could not afford to pay the reported $47,000 it would cost her to cover the remainder of her tuition after financial aid. She was recently outed by another Duke freshman, at which point she went public with her story.

Dr. Weeks and his wife Harcharan, who raised their three children as Roman Catholics and sent them to a Jesuit high school near their home, are “heartbroken,” according to another family member.

“I’m sure the family is going to rally round and love her. She did wrong by the family, but they are still going to love her,” Amanda Minor, the mother-in-law of Miriam’s older brother, told the Daily Mail. “They’re heartbroken, but it’s not irreparable. Nothing is irreparable when it comes to the Weeks family and their love for each other.”

Weeks appeared on CNN March 6 and told Piers Morgan about her racy lifestyle.

“The financial aid that I was given to pay for my tuition was insufficient and [it was] just really an enormous financial burden on my family,” she said.

Dr. Weeks’ Google + page was hacked, The Daily Mail reports, and a photo of his daughter appeared as his profile picture. The photo has since been removed.

Minor said the family is shocked at the 18-year-old’s choice to make money in the adult movie industry, but said that people talking badly about Weeks and his wife are in the wrong.

“The family adore this girl,” Minor said. “Maybe she got into something that she shouldn’t have? I can’t explain why she’s done this. There’s no way the parents should be painted like this, they’ve given their kids every opportunity in life.”

Dr. Weeks works at the Mann Grandstaff VA Medical Center in Spokane, a hospital facility for war veterans. His daughter earned high grades when she was a student at Gonzaga Prep School, for which the tuition is around $11,000 annually. Miriam earned an award for her knowledge in foreign languages during her senior year.

“Education means everything to that family,” Minor said. “The parents are so devoted.”

Miriam said she does not regret getting into the seedy business, but she is sorry for one thing: “I regret not telling my family from the get-go. I think that was a really big mistake.”
