Chynna & Michelle Phillips
I received a lot of comments about a post I did on Mackenzie Phillips story. Some people felt that her incestuous past should be revealed because it might help someone else. Really?!! How will knowing that John Phillips supposedly banged his own flesh & blood make a difference in anyone’s life? The world is not a naive place,even though some of its inhabitants apparently are!
Mackenzie Phillips isn’t shedding light on incest for the first time. She is telling the world a personal story that she claims is true. Since John Phillips isn’t here to defend himself, only Mackenzie Phillips & God know the truth. The only person Mackenzie Phillips is really helping by telling this sordid tale is herself. And that’s only if she can top the bestseller’s list.
Some of those who know her don’t believe what she’s saying. Michelle Phillips is one of those folks. Here’s more from news.cnpanyu.com:
“The incestuous relationship between John and Mackenzie, from his first marriage to socialite Susan Adams, later became consensual as the pair began using heroin together and touring in a band called The New Mamas and The Papas.
Wilson Phillips founder Chynna reveals she received a phone call confession in 1997 from her half sister, who revealed her affair with their father began while he was married to third wife, Genevieve Waite.
Standing by her sister, Chynna tells Us Weekly, “They were both doing drugs together. After long nights of heroin use, she’s claiming that she once woke up and that my father was on top of her having sex with her. Was he actually raping her? I don’t know. Do I believe they had an incestuous relationship and that it went on for 10 years? Yes.”
However, Chynna’s actress mom Michelle Phillips, John’s second wife and former member of The Mamas & The Papas, has rejected Mackenzie’s claims as the musings of a desperate drug addict. She adds, “You should take with a grain of salt anything that’s said by a person who has had a needle stuck in their arm for 35 years. The whole story is disgusting.” (End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.
