Even some of Phillips’ extended family members have a tough time swallowing her story. Especially Michelle Phillips, Mackenzie’s stepmother and a former member of the Mamas and the Papas. She told the Hollywood Reporter that she does not believe Mackenzie’s story. She went on to say that Mackenzie experienced bouts “of mental illness” and that “she’s had a needle stuck up her arm for 35 years.”
Michelle struck back by saying that “Mackenzie is jealous of her siblings, who have accomplished a lot and did not become drug addicts,” said Michelle.
It’s amazing how Mackenzie’s family members, who disbelieve her, will admit to the fact that John Phillips had a serious drug problem, but God forbid anyone should admit that he could have also been having an incestuous ‘affair’ with his own daughter.
