          "My Husband vs. My Lying Ex": Time is Running Out for This Wife Caught in the Middle

          July 21, 2016

          PLAYING “My Husband vs. My Lying Ex”: Time is Running Out for This Wife Caught in the Middle
          John, 34, says his wife, Adriane, 34, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and fears that when she’s gone, he’ll have to co-parent her two children with her ex-husband, Rick. John and Adriane claim Rick is a narcissist and drug addict who steals from his children and refuses to pay child support.

          Rick flatly denies their accusations, says he’s tired of John and Adriane alienating him from his children and claims Adriane’s cancer diagnosis might be just a scam to get donations — a claim both John and Adriane vehemently deny.

          What do her medical records say? And, hear what Rick’s 18-year-old daughter, Katie, has to say about her family’s troubled dynamic. Can Dr. Phil help this family come to a compromise when it comes to the best interest of the children?
