Mackenzie Phillips' Stepmom Says She's a Liar!
Michelle Phillips says stepdaughter Mackenzie's allegations that she had a decade-long incestuous relationship with her father, John Phillips are bogus.
Showbiz411's Roger Friedman spoke with Michelle, pictured, who was married to John for eight eights in the '60s.
She said Mackenzie has "a lot of mental illness," and that "she’s had a needle stuck up her arm for 35 years."
Michelle goes on to say, “Mackenzie is jealous of her siblings, who have accomplished a lot and did not become drug addicts.'
She's also suspicious of the timing of the media blitz and book, which is slated to to be released at the same time Michelle's daughter Chynna Phillips drops a new album.
“John was a bad parent, and a drug addict," Michelle said. But f*cking his daughter? If she thinks it’s true, why isn’t she with a good psychiatrist on a couch? I think it’s unconscionable that Oprah would let her do her show. I have every reason to believe it’s untrue. Oprah should be more judicious about who she has on her show.”
Michelle's marriage to John broke up well before the alleged affair with his daughter began.
Update: Mackenzie Responds.
"If you open a textbook on incest you can see a picture of the Phillips family, the instinct is to say it's not true. The instinct is to deny....I understand this is very difficult, and to be revealed on a public level such as this makes it ever more difficult, and my heart goes out to [my family]. I know that, God willing, as a family we will all be stronger when this dies down."
