Couple Claims Neighbors Tried To Blow Up Their Children’s Swing Set

Jana and Allen say that since their neighbors Melanie, Maritha and Maritha’s son, Christopher, moved into the house directly behind them, they have been in constant conflict. They say their neighbors have made false police reports, called DFS, threatened them and that their four dogs bark all hours of the night.

But Maritha points the finger right back at Jana and Allen, accusing them of making her life a “living hell.”

Among the encounters fueling the feud between the neighbors is an incident in which Jana and Allen claim that 21-year-old Christopher, along with his two younger brothers, planted and detonated an explosive device beneath their children’s backyard swing set.

“My husband and I were asleep in bed, and we heard a loud explosive,” Jana says.

“You could see on the video Maritha’s three sons come out of the garage, light an explosive and all three of them run back to the house when the explosion goes off,” Allen says.

“We cannot believe that three children tried to blow my kids’ swing set up,” Jana adds. “What’s next, is she going to try and kill us? Is she going to blow our house up?”

However, Christopher denies being involved in the incident.

“She had a grainy video; I couldn’t even tell if these were adults, or grown men or little kids. They are obviously lying,” he says. “I go to a very, very good university and I would not jeopardize my presence at that university.”

Christopher adds that he believes race plays a role in the neighbors’ ongoing feud.

“I believe that Jana is a racist. She also relies upon negative stereotypes of African-American people being violent and criminal by nature,” Christopher says. “My worst fear is that the situation will spiral further out of control and we’ll have another replay of the Mike Brown incident or the Trayvon Martin incident, where one of my younger brothers, myself or my mother will end up laying out there in the middle of the cul-de-sac dead.”

What These Feuding Families Need To Do To End Their Ongoing Dispute

Jana and Allen say they have been in constant conflict with their neighbors Maritha and Melanie since they moved into the house behind them. The families have been in battles over barking dogs, explosives allegedly planted in the backyard, an alleged assault and false police reports. Tensions have escalated to the point that both families have installed surveillance cameras around their homes because they say they fear for their safety.

Daughter Explains How She Says She Uncovered Her Ex-Pastor Father’s “Secret Life”

Marissa says last summer, she started getting suspicious of her father’s behavior because she claims he was constantly checking his phone and “rushing out the door.” So she says she snooped through his cell phone.

“What I found was a text message about my dad paying a bondsman a $10,000 bond for this woman,” Marissa says.

Marissa says she then investigated her dad’s computer and claims she found emails that he sent to another woman, and an Internet history of checking out “pornographic” and “call girl” websites.

She claims that after she confronted her father, a former pastor and insurance salesman who has been married to her mother for 34 years, she learned about the double life he had been leading.

“My dad claimed to be on an escort website so that he could sell insurance to call girls. I thought he was crazy,” Marissa says. “The worst part is my mom believes him.”

Marissa says after learning about her dad’s “secret life,” and that, she claims, he spent more than $60,000 on one particular woman he met on the website, she encouraged her mother to file for divorce.

Marissa’s mother says after helping her husband “cope with what he had done,” she believed their relationship was getting better, so she called off the divorce the day they went to court.

“When my mom backed out of the divorce, I was astonished and extremely disappointed,” Marissa says, adding that she no longer communicates with her mom. “I’m angry at my mom for forgiving him. She’s being deceived.”

Robert admits that he had a relationship with a woman he met on a “call girl” website, but claims it was mostly over the phone and they only went as far as kissing – and that he has told his wife and daughter the full truth about his affair.

But Marissa says she thinks there’s more to the story. On Friday’s episode, Dr. Phil attempts to get to the truth. Watch more here.

Why Married Ex-Pastor Says He Was Sending Emails To Strippers And Visiting Risqué Websites

Robert, a married ex-pastor and insurance salesman, says he was looking to expand his business, so he went on a “call girl” website to see if he could meet new clients. Robert says that after communicating with some of the women, he started a relationship with one that was mostly over the phone and only went as far as kissing, although he also says he spent $60,000 of his family’s savings on her. Watch his story here.

In the video above, he tells Dr. Phil why he first went to the website. Did he have ulterior motives, or was he just trying to find new business? See the emails he says he wrote to some of the women.

Robert claims that he has ended his relationship with the other woman and has been completely truthful with his wife and daughter about his “affair,” but his daughter says she thinks there’s more to the story. On Friday’s episode, Dr. Phil attempts to get to the truth. Watch more here.


Married Ex-Pastor Reveals He Used Family’s Savings For A Woman He Says He Met Online

Robert, a former pastor who has been married for 34 years, admits that he had a relationship with a woman he met on a “call girl” website, but says their relationship was mostly over the phone and only went as far as kissing one time.

In the video above, Robert says that he “cleaned out” his savings account and spent thousands on credit cards – including, he says, bailing her out of jail multiple times – but claims he was only trying to be a good Samaritan and help this woman turn her life around.

Terminally Ill Mom’s Wish For Her Teen Children

Adriane was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer two years ago. Now, she says she and her husband of eight years are in a battle with her ex-husband over who will raise her two teenage kids when she passes — their biological father or their stepfather. The exes have been at war, and Adriane says she turned to Dr. Phil for help to ensure that she is doing everything she can for her kids.

“I just want to make sure no matter who has the kids, if I’m not here, that they’re in the best place possible. That they are getting morals and values and learning right from wrong and just being molded into productive members of society,” she tells Dr. Phil.

This episode, “My Husband vs. My Lying Ex”: Time is Running Out for This Wife Caught in the Middle, airs Thursday. Watch more here.

Man Says He Believes Ex Could Be Lying About Cancer Diagnosis To Get Donations

Rick’s ex-wife Adriane says she was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer two years ago, but he says he believes that she may have made up the diagnosis.

“She’s lived a lot longer than 99 percent of the people who’ve had this cancer,” Rick says. “I think something’s going on, something fishy. I question her diagnosis to the fullest.”

Rick claims that Adriane and her husband, John, with whom he is at odds regarding who will raise Adriane and Rick’s children once she passes, have received monetary donations through social media and he says he believes they’re spending the money “frivolously.”

“They have a camper. They bought a brand-new van, a brand-new car. They also have rental properties. They have a nanny, and neither of them work,” John claims. “I want to know where this money is going. I think it’s a scam with this cancer diagnosis. There was one point, the cancer just disappeared. It was gone. I just don’t understand, I really don’t. Is it going to her medical expenses? Or, is it going to live a lavish life?”

Adriane, who is adamant that she is not faking her diagnosis, says people in the community set up fundraisers for her family to help cover the cost of treatments and co-pays; she is also adamant that the money is not being “used to live a lavish lifestyle.”

“I am not faking my diagnosis at all. This is 100 percent real. I have the scars to prove it,” she says.

Dr. Phil reviews Adriane’s medical records with Rick. What do they show? And, he has a stern message for Rick. On Thursday’s episode, can Dr. Phil help this family come to a compromise when it comes to the best interest of the children? Watch more here.

A Mother’s Decision: Her Kids Or The Love of Her Life

Just two hours after giving birth to her son, Kristina says her family was ripped apart.

“The day that we had our child was one of the best days of our lives and also the worst day of our lives,” she says. “That was the last day we were able to be a family.”

Kristina says shortly after giving birth, Child Protective Services visited her in the hospital and told her that her boyfriend, Jayson, must leave the hospital immediately and have no contact with their newborn son.

WATCH: Woman Claims She Did Not Know About Boyfriend’s Past Molestation Findings When She Let Him Move In With Her And Her Kids

“CPS said Jayson has been accused of sexually molesting his daughter and his son,” Kristina explains. “Some of the things that I was told were some of the most heinous things that you could ever possibly think of an adult doing with a child. It made me physically sick to my stomach.”

Kristina says when she first met Jayson, it was “love at first sight.” Within two weeks of their first meeting, Kristina says she let Jayson move in with her and her two sons.

While Kristina says she was aware Jayson – who adamantly denies the findings against him – had lost his parental rights to his four children from a previous relationship, she claims he never mentioned the abuse claims.

“Jayson told me that he had lost the rights to his four children because of his ex-wife being neglectful,” Kristina says.

Jayson, however, insists he told Kristina about the molestation findings against him.

“I don’t know if she’s lying or doesn’t remember, but I did show her the paperwork from CPS,” Jayson claims. “I did not know that CPS was going to remove the child if I had another child with another woman.”

However, Kristina says that according to CPS, Jayson knew he would not be allowed to have any more children – which she says she learned while in the hospital.

“The CPS worker told me that Jayson was aware that if he had any other children after his four previous children, that they automatically would be taken away from him. He never mentioned that to me,” Kristina adds. “I was devastated.”

It was then, Kristina says, that she was faced with a difficult choice of choosing between her son and the man she’s in love with.

“CPS gave me a choice. They said if I don’t sign the piece of paper that would keep Jayson out of my son’s life, they would have to take custody of all three of my children,” she says. “Jayson hasn’t seen his son now for two-and-a-half months.”

Now, Kristina says she’s searching for the “truth.”

“I believe that CPS made up these allegations to take his children away from him,” she adds. “I’m still in love with him even today.”

On Thursday’s Dr. Phil, Kristina and Jayson discuss the findings against him. Plus, hear from Kristina’s mother, Mary, who claims Jayson threatened to kill her and blow up her house.

And, in part two, Jayson takes a polygraph exam regarding the molestation accusations. What will the results reveal?

Could Intoxicated Man Have Fallen Over Staircase Rail Without Being Pushed?

Stephanie’s 21-year-old son, Malcolm, died in late 2015, after going into a coma following a 15-foot fall from a stairway railing. Malcolm’s 19-year-old girlfriend, Chloe, was the only person to witness Malcolm fall, and Stephanie says she is certain Chloe is responsible for her son’s death.

“The story I got is that Malcolm stepped back and fell sideways,” Stephanie says. “There is no way I can believe the story she gave me. Something she did that night caused him to fall. I believe she got mad. He was probably trying to dodge her, or she pushed him, and he fell over.”

Chloe insists she did not kill her boyfriend. She says Malcolm was intoxicated, lost his footing and fell backward.

“There were a good four or five steps between us. It wasn’t even like I was close enough to grab him,” she says.

According to Malcolm’s certificate of death, his manner of death was an accident.

In the video above, using a replica of the steps where Malcolm fell, Dr. Phil demonstrates how Malcolm may have fallen over the railing. After watching the reenactment, will Stephanie’s opinion change? This episode of Dr. Phil, “Deadly Accident or Push? A Grieving Mom vs. The Girlfriend Accused,” airs Wednesday. Watch more here.

Teen Describes Being Bullied On Social Media After Boyfriend’s Death

Chloe says she envisioned spending her life with her high school sweetheart Malcolm. But, their romance ended in late 2015, when Malcolm tragically fell 15 feet over a rail in an apartment building and died two-and-a-half weeks later.

Chloe, the only witness to the fall, claims that he lost his balance while intoxicated — but Malcolm’s family and friends say they don’t believe it was an accident and say they believe Chloe may be responsible for his death – an accusation she denies. Watch her story here.

The 19-year-old says that since Malcolm’s death, she has been bullied on social media and that Malcolm’s family has turned on her.

“I was actually banned from Malcolm’s funeral. No one let me know when it was,” she claims. “There were threats made to me, telling me that if I came, they would smash my head in. Some people said that if they saw me they were going to shoot me.”

Malcolm’s mother, Stephanie, admits that she didn’t want Chloe at the funeral. “I couldn’t allow her at the funeral not knowing if she killed him or not,” she says.

WATCH: Why Teen Refuses To Take A Polygraph Exam Following Boyfriend’s Fatal Fall

Chloe says after she was banned from Malcolm’s funeral, people started accusing her of killing Malcolm.

“People message me and are just, like, ‘I heard you pushed him,’” she claims. “I got a message about, ‘Hey, can you tell Malcolm I said hey?’, like it was supposed to be funny or something.”

Chloe also claims that people are attacking her because of her race. “People don’t even know who I am. They just know that his white girlfriend killed him. They don’t know how he died, what happened,” she says. “It’s gotten quite out of hand. It’s to the point now where I want to delete all of my social media.”

Advice For A Young Mom Who Wants To Regain Custody Of Her Child Who Was Placed For Adoption

Olivia claims her newborn daughter, Evelyn, was taken away from her illegally and placed for adoption five years ago. She claims that Jyllian, the woman who adopted her daughter, promised her the opportunity to be part of her child’s life, but Olivia says Jyllian has ignored her attempts to make contact.

Olivia says that she believes Jyllian is an unfit mother, after finding pictures of her online that she claims show Jyllian to be a ‘provocative’ party girl, and she admits that she has written negative things about Jyllian on the Internet.

Young Mom Apologizes For Badmouthing Woman Who Adopted Her Child

Olivia, 22, claims that her newborn daughter, Evelyn, was taken away from her illegally and placed for adoption seven years ago. She claims Jyllian, the woman who adopted Evelyn, promised to provide her with pictures of the little girl and the opportunity to be a part of her life, but Olivia says she hasn’t done either.

Jyllian adamantly denies making any such promises to Olivia.

Olivia claims she’s been fighting to see her daughter for the last five years and Jyllian has ignored her attempts to make contact. She says that after searching for Jyllian online and finding pictures of her that she claims to be ‘provocative,’ she admits she made some inappropriate comments about Jyllian on social media.

After speaking with Dr. Phil and hearing from Jyllian, fighting back tears, Olivia says, “I just want to say I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’m hurt and I miss my daughter so much, and I’m sorry for everything I’ve said. And you don’t have to let her see me, but please let her see my family.”

In the video above, Dr. Phil offers advice to the young mom.

“If you come to me and you say, ‘How can I get the most of what I want?’ I look at it from a pragmatic standpoint,” he says, explaining that the chances of an adoption being overturned after five years are very unlikely. “What could I get you if not flip the adoption? We could get you in the child’s life where she could wrap her little arms around your neck, where you could be there for the big things in her life, where you could have all of those things. Wouldn’t that be a giant step forward?” But he says that may only happen if Olivia and her family tone down their rhetoric regarding Jyllian.

Why Adoptive Mom Does Not Want Biological Mom To Have Contact With Her Child

Jyllian says she fell in love with her foster daughter, Evelyn, the first moment she saw her and was thrilled when she was able to adopt her and make her a permanent part of her family five years ago.

Now, Jyllian claims she is being harassed and stalked by her daughter’s birth mother, Olivia, and her family, and that they have also slandered her online. She says because of this, she does not want Evelyn to have contact with her birth mother.

“If [Evelyn] wants Olivia in her life, it’s up to me, as her parent, to decide what’s in the best interest of my child,” Jyllian says. “At this point, I will have to say no.”

Jyllian says that she may reconsider her decision in the future, but Olivia would have to change her behavior.

“I think there’s going to need to be a lot of healing, she’s not trashing me online or stalking me,” Jyllian says. “If she can’t do that, then there will be no option of them reconnecting until my daughter’s 18 and has her own choice.”

Olivia and her mother, Julia, claim Evelyn was illegally taken from their family by authorities and placed for adoption and that they have spent the past five years fighting to see her. Olivia, who denies harassing Jyllian, claims Jyllian promised to let her be a part of Evelyn’s life but has ignored Olivia’s attempts to make contact and says that Jyllian is an unfit mother. 

Jyllian adamantly denies making any promises about Evelyn to Olivia, says their claims are outrageous and that everything about the adoption was legal.

Dr. Phil asks Jyllian, “If the drama was gone, if the dysfunction was gone, if you had confidence that your character would not be assassinated and your relationship with your daughter be sabotaged, and Evelyn had an interest or curiosity in doing that, you would be open to taking steps in that direction, first, supervised and all — you would be open to that?”

“I would be open to it when Evelyn is emotionally way more mature than she is right now, and I’m not talking 12. If she’s interested right now at this point, I think there’s been a lot of bad blood and there’s been a lot that’s been said about me.”

After being found by authorities, Julia says Olivia and Phoebe were taken and placed into foster care – and soon thereafter, Olivia claims her infant daughter was illegally taken from her by authorities and placed for adoption.

“I went to court, and I was terrified,” Olivia claims. She says she met her daughter’s adoptive mom, Jyllian, whom she says pretended to console her. “She was like, ‘You know, if anything happens, I promise you, I will always keep her in your life. I promise,’” Olivia claims. “I cannot tell you, Dr. Phil, I held on to those words.”
