Twenty-year-old Kiersten is seven months pregnant and says she’s ready to parent her daughter with her fiancé, Jadan, 22. But Kiersten’s mother, Karen, says, “no way.” Karen says she’s hired an attorney to seek full custody of her soon-to-be-born grandchild, claiming that the two are unfit parents and that Jadan is mentally and physically abusive toward Kiersten — accusations both Kiersten and Jadan strongly deny.
Jadan says Karen is a “cancer in his life,” and he is sick of her spreading vicious lies about him.
With Kiersten’s due date just weeks away, can Dr. Phil help Karen and Jadan bury the hatchet before this becomes a bitter custody battle?
