Child actress, Mackenzie Phillips, has been very open about her past drug use. But in her new book, High on Arrival, the 49-year-old daughter of musician, John Phillips, of the Mamas and the Papas, reveals that she and her dad maintained a long-term incestuous affair.
Mackenzie was 19-years-old on the eve of her wedding to Jeff Sessler, part of the Rolling Stones entourage, when her father arrived “determined to stop it.”
As Phillips writes, “I had tons of pills, and Dad had tons of everything too. Eventually I passed out on Dad’s bed.” She adds, “My father was not a man with boundaries. He was full of love, and he was sick with drugs. I woke up that night from a blackout to find myself having sex with my own father.”
Yikes. That is not what they mean by “something new.”
In the book, Phillips explains that in 1980, both she and her father checked into rehab, at which time their “sexual relationship with him had become consensual,” according to People.
