She asks that no one is angry at her now deceased father, but what happened to her is something that can’t be easily forgiven, even for outsiders. Mackenzie Phillips, daughter of John Phillips from the Mamas and the Papas, confesses in her new book that her father drugged her and they were also in a “consensual” sex relationship. John Philips at one pointed asked her to run away with him to a country where their relationship is a common practice.
Reading the story makes me sick. How can someone think it’s ok to have sex with your father. At one point both checked themselves into rehab, but rehab didn’t work for either. In 2001, John Philips pasted away from heart failure, and it was only months ago that Mackenzie was at the Los Angeles Airport and was stopped with needles, coke, and heroine. She then went back into rehab. I hope her rehab had counseling, but even then I feel such a traumatic experience at a young age could ruin one for life.
Another thing that disturbs me is the fact she wrote this book. How can she ask the world not to be angry with her father when she is the one that brought it to everyone’s attention? Why air your dirty laundry out on Oprah?
