I have trouble believing it. Not that I don't believe this stuff happens, it is too convient, and relys on hearsay only. Also, the sister doesn't say she knew it happen, only that her sister told her, and she believed it. Again she tells her something about 10 years after it ends. I also know from having done drugs, and know people that have done more then me, your memory gets screwed up, and there are things that you image, and your mind has a totally different reality. It doesn't all of a sudden get totaly good. Some thirty years of drug abuse, and rehab, and such. I need forensic evidence.
Lots of fathers have paid for abortions for their daughters, and they are not the fathers of their children.
But lest as a people stop our facination with celebrities, and realize they are rich, and maybe good looking, and that is all. They are usually failures in life, but the money keeps them from having the face the reality of it.
The only thing I object to are the statments that the relationship was consensual. This was a case of abuse, terrible abuse. It doesn't surprise me that she has chosen to speak out. Too many people who have suffered abuse live a fictitious life, agreed to silently by the family to cover their shame and guilt. This pretense has a devastating effect on the victim. All the best to you Michelle.
I believe Mackenzie is telling the truth and deserves an opportunity to heal. Hopefully speaking out will help her and others. She revealed the truth to her family long before her father died. They had an opportunity to confront him but chose to avoid this uncomfortable issue. In my opinion, her family didn't want to hear the truth.
Families typically blame the victim. If Mackenzie makes money from this book, so what! This is a young lady who never had a chance at a normal life. I don't believe she's motivated by money and hope her story assists her in transforming her life from victim to advocate. Good luck Mackenzie! My prayers go out to you and your family.
Well, if it's true, she definitely needs the healing process...however, don't know how smart it was to go public...mmm, not good. Unfortunately, she is viewed by many to be nothing but an opportunist. Probably is true, but look at the ridicule she is enduring, but I guess the big paycheck with the book will soften the blow....sigh..........
I'm grossed out with her story, but I believe it might help others going through this. They will find that they are not alone in this nightmare. I believe Mackenzie Phillips is telling the truth. Those of us who have never experienced this type of thing can only imagine the trauma and confusion of a child and young adult being preyed on and betrayed by our parents, our "protectors."
