The "house of horrors" was described in YouTube videos posted anonymously by a teen who escaped the California home where she was among 13 siblings held abused by their parents, according to reports.

The 17-year-old girl reportedly posted original songs about her living conditions under a fake name, according to Fox News.

The most recent video was made only seven days before the teen escaped through a window and told authorities about the alleged abuse her parents Louise and David Turpin inflicted on their 13 children aged 29 to 2, Fox News reported.

Only the 2-year-old was not malnourished when the children were examined by medical professionals, and the children also showed evidence of repeated beatings and lived in filthy conditions, Fox News said. The home smelled of human waste and the children were allegedly shackled to their beds much of the time.

Both Turpin parents were arrested and are being held on $12 million bail each, Fox News reported.

The YouTube videos surfaced after cellist Yo-Yo Ma played a private concert for the siblings, CBS News reported.

The teen stood in front of a white door to make the videos and sang original songs, some of which talked about her harsh home life, Fox News reported.

"You blame me for everything, you blame me in every way, you blame me for what they say, what they say," one of the songs said.
