Terry admits that he has been unfaithful to his wife, Cherie, for most of their 11-year relationship. He says he’s had multiple affairs, including a 15-year on-and-off relationship with Crystal, who claims Terry is the father of her daughter, although Terry says he’s uncertain. Terry claims that Crystal knew about his wife and children during their relationship and that she threatened to reveal their relationship to his wife if he did not pay her money, a claim Crystal vehemently denies.

“I was afraid that she was going to out me to my wife. I was afraid that she was going to do it in a way that was going to be horrendous for everyone. I did not want my wife to find out,” Terry says. So he started sending Crystal $400 a month.

Crystal, however, claims that she had no idea Terry was married or had other children. She says when she told Terry she was pregnant, he chose not to be a part of the child’s life and she accepted that. She says it wasn’t until she learned he had two other children that she asked him for money.

“I phoned him and told him [that if] he’s going to be responsible for his other two kids, then he needed to be responsible for mine as well,” she says.

In the video above, Dr. Phil asks Crystal, “If he’s the father of your child, why did you wait until you saw he had other children to ask him to step up financially?”

“Because he was picking and choosing his kids,” Crystal says.

“So you were going to give him a break until you saw he had other children and then you said, ‘OK, buddy, you’re going to step up and pay?” Dr. Phil asks.

“Absolutely,” Crystal replies.

Sarah says she’s tired of her family trying to control her and making her out to be a danger to her child. “They took my daughter as if she was some kind of object. I’ve been trying to get her back ever since,” says Sarah. She’s claiming her family “kidnapped” her baby girl.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

The child has lived with Sarah’s father, Jim, and stepmother, Cindy, since August 2015. They claim she put her little girl’s safety at risk by exposing her to dangerous situations involving drugs, gangs and other illegal activities.

“I’m not a monster to my own child; I’ve never put my daughter in harm’s way,” says Sarah who denies the allegation. “My family didn’t agree with who I was hanging around with. I’m guilty by association.”

Sarah claims her father forced her into signing over temporary guardianship of her daughter, then put strict conditions on what she would have to do before she would be allowed to see the child again.

“My father lays out these terms and conditions, A, B, C, D, E, and if I don’t follow these guidelines – I’m unable to see my daughter. I missed out on a lot – Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, all because I wasn’t living life on their terms.”

Sarah says she’s gone “above and beyond” for her daughter and claims she’s turning her life around, for the sake of her child. When her family claims they have proof that she’s still involved in illegal activities, how does she respond?

Her family says the reason Sarah doesn’t have custody of her little girl is because she’s living “a dark, and scary life.”

“Sarah has a reputation of aligning herself with some bad men, men who have had felony records, who have been in gangs,” says Jim.

Cindy says she believes Sara is both doing drugs – and selling them. “November twenty-first, Sarah was arrested with three pounds of marijuana in her car with a known gang member.”

“I was terrified day and night here my daughter was and where she was going, and where she would possibly end up,” says Sarah’s mother, Sharon. She says she put a GPS tracker on Sarah’s car to keep tabs on her activities, and Cindy claims it’s shown Sarah visiting multiple houses, apartment buildings, parks, parking lots, street corners and neighborhoods associated with gangs.
