          “I Believe My Ex-Boyfriend Kidnapped Our Daughter and Kept Her For Five Years!”

          July 27, 2016

          PLAYING “I Believe My Ex-Boyfriend Kidnapped Our Daughter and Kept Her For Five Years!”
          After agreeing that her ex-boyfriend, Robert, would take their 1-year-old daughter with him to Michigan, “for the time being,” Ashley claims Robert “kidnapped” the child and kept her for five years.

          Robert, who has lost full custody of their now-6-year-old, adamantly denies he “kidnapped” the child, and insists Ashley knew right where to find them all along.

          Robert also says their daughter would still be in his care if a woman, Mary, had not intervened.

          Mary, who is the grandmother of Robert’s current girlfriend Kim’s son, claims she rushed to Ashley’s side to help her get her daughter out of Robert and Kim’s home, because she alleged that Robert and Ashley were forcing the little girl to do squats and feeding her teaspoons of vinegar as punishment.

          Kim, who filed for a protective order against Mary for allegedly stalking and harassing her, alleges that Mary has a pattern of trying to file “phony” CPS charges, including on her family!

          Sparks fly and anger erupts as both Robert and Ashley argue over the best home for their daughter to live, and Kim criticizes Ashley, calling her a “deadbeat mom”!

          Will Robert and Ashley be able to come to an understanding on how to co-parent? Dr. Phil attempts to calm the chaos and help these parents determine what is best for the 6-year-old girl who is being pulled in every direction!
