After Mackenzie Phillips dropped the bombshell that she had consensual sex with her father for 10 years stopping only when she found out she was pregnant, her step-mom, Michelle Phillips, claimed that she was lying.
I spoke to Michelle this morning by phone; she has not read Mackenzie’s book, published today, called “High on Arrival.” Michelle Phillips says that in 1997, Mackenzie told everyone in their extended family that she and her father, Michelle’s famous former husband, had had a sexual relationship.
“She told me, then she called me back and said, ‘You know I’m joking,’ ” Michelle told me. “I said it wasn’t funny. Mackenzie said, ‘I guess we have different senses of humor.’ ”
Today, Bijou Phillips, Mackenzie’s half-sister, said she knew about the molestation and was afraid of being left alone with her father.
In a statement read by Oprah Winfrey on her talk show Friday, Bijou Phillips says she was 13 years old when Mackenzie Phillips told her about the sexual relationship.
Bijou Phillips is now 29 and says the news was confusing and scary. She says it was “heartbreaking” to think her family would leave her alone with her father.
Mackenzie Phillips says she did go get her sister when she “felt like she wasn’t being watched properly.”
Obviously Bijou’s fears were unfounded. John wouldn’t molest her like he did Mackenzie. People say he was a one daughter kind of guy. Plus, Bijou had no idea how to roll a joint or tie John off so he could shoot heroin into his arms. She was pretty much dead to him.
