To promote her book, High on Arrival, Mackenzie Phillips went on Oprah Winfrey‘s talk show to drop the bombshell that she had been involved in a drug-fueled sexual relationship with her father, John Phillips, that spanned ten years.
John’s ex-wife, Michelle Phillips, is speaking out about the claims, saying, “John was a bad parent, and a drug addict. But [expletive deleted] his daughter?” She adds, “I have every reason to believe it’s untrue. Oprah should be more judicious about who she has on her show.”
The former member of the Mamas and the Papas believes that the Mackenzie is motivated by jealousy of her other siblings.
Michelle dismisses her step-daughter’s allegations by saying, “Mackenzie has a lot of mental illness. She’s had a needle stuck up her arm for 35 years…She did Celebrity Rehab and now she writes a book. The whole thing is timed.”
