“Is Rape too Strong a Word?â€
Kris has been listening to the show via phone, and Dr. Phil asks him, “What do you agree with or disagree with that has been said?”

Kris says he disagrees that Jessica wasn't trying to get pregnant. "That was very obvious to everybody, except for me. I had people telling me all the time that’s all that she wanted,” he says. “I kind of looked over it. She was the first girlfriend I ever had, and I put a lot of trust into her.” He adds that Jessica broke up with him frequently, so she could date other guys.

Kris recalls the night Jessica became pregnant. “I said I didn’t want to be there. I didn’t want to do that, and the only coercion there was was her saying, ‘You know you want to continue. You know want to keep going,’ and I didn’t,” he says. “I didn’t want to be a dad.” He adds that he didn’t have enough room to push Jessica off him and get out of the car.

[AD]“Jessica is the first girl you had sex with at 15 years of age,” Dr. Phil says. “And the two of you had gotten pregnant before. Was that your child?”

“I don’t know,” Kris replies. “She also had a sexual relationship with other guys as well, in between her relationship with me.”

Kris says it’s his understanding that on the same night Jessica became pregnant, she had sex with another young man. Dr. Phil asks him, “Do you know that this baby in question is yours?”

“There was a paternity test done,” Kris says.
“When you guys got out of the car, were you asking her to come home with you?” Dr. Phil asks.

“No. Not at all,” Kris replies. “I sat on the back of the car with my head in my hands. I didn’t speak to anyone.”

“Did you feel violated, or were you afraid you had gotten her pregnant because you knew she was high risk?” Dr. Phil asks.

“I did feel violated, because throughout our relationship, we had a consensual relationship prior to this, and it seems like as soon as she had the miscarriage, she got even more aggressive,” he says.

Kris tells Dr. Phil that Jessica lived with him after the incident because she didn't have anywhere to live, and his mother took her in. “I hadn’t told anybody at this point what had a happened. I just, kind of, wanted to block it out,” he says.

“Isn’t it odd that you move your rapist into your home?” Dr. Phil asks.

“That wasn’t my decision,” he says, explaining that Jessica was living with his family before the incident, because her family left her at the hospital when she had the miscarriage.

“Is rape too strong a word here?"

“You understand that rape is a felony, and if she is convicted of rape … she could wind up being a registered sex offender and doing a number of years in the state penitentiary for a felony,” Dr. Phil says to Kris. “Is that your hope and intent here?”

“Honestly, for what happened to me, yes,” he says.

Jessica wipes away tears.Kris reveals that he doesn’t have a relationship with his son, and he’s only met him once. “A lot of people say to me, ‘How can you not be a part of this child’s life?’ but the thing is, yes, he’s an innocent child, but I’m also innocent as well,” he says.

[AD]Dr. Phil asks, “If his mother goes to the penitentiary and becomes a registered sex offender, then what will happen to the child?”

Kris says he doesn’t know. “I don’t think it would be fair for him to grow up with a father who went through what he did,” he says.

"If she dropped her claim for child support, would you drop your allegation of rape?”
Jessica’s friend, Kim, was with Kris and Jessica the night Kris says he was raped.

Hear her recollection of events.

Kris says he was so upset that night, he didn’t speak to anyone during the car ride home. And, he also denies making out with Jessica earlier that evening.

Dr. Phil turns to Jessica and asks her, “What’s going on here?”

[AD]“It is true that I did have sex with another man that night. I’m not proud of it, but I did, and the reason Kris left me was because of that specific reason,” she says, admitting that she lied to Kris about the other encounter that night. “That night was the very first time I ever had sex with anyone else other than Kris.”

Jessica breaks down as she discusses the accusations against her.
