          "Our Son Claims He is a Famous Songwriter: Could He Be Delusional or a Master Manipulator?"

          January 01, 2016

          Robin says she’s concerned about her 23-year-old son, Riley, who insists he’s a famous songwriter, with his biggest claim to fame, according to Riley, being that he worked with Taylor Swift.
          Robin says Riley went from Advanced Placement classes to drug use and being homeless, and that at a young age, Riley began lying and showed great skill at manipulating people. She admits she enabled him over the years, but now she feels as if the situation is so far out of her control, she doesn’t know what to do.
          Darrell, Riley’s stepfather, says the circumstances have caused strain in his marriage. Is Riley truly troubled, or is he just manipulating those closest to him?
