“Michelle is definitely the love of my life. She’s my everything,” says Paul of his girlfriend. “When Michelle ran away for five days this summer, I was the first person she called. We got super drunk the first night. Michelle told me that she was about to turn 16. We definitely took it to the next level that night.”TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Dr. Phil, please solve our conflict!
Paul says that it was only after Michelle was rescued from his house that he learned she is only 14 — but he says he has no plans to end their relationship. “I couldn’t see myself cutting the relationship off, considering what we had already accomplished together,” he says.
Paul, who admits that recently he has been living out of his car with no windshield in his parents’ front yard, says that Michelle’s parents don’t want them dating and have even gone as far as calling him a rapist.WATCH: How Parents Say They Learned Their 14-Year-Old Is Dating 18-Year-Old
“The more Michelle’s mother and father try to control what she does, the more she will defy her parents,” says Paul, adding that he wants to spend the rest of his life with his girlfriend. “I strongly believe they need to let Michelle have her freedom.”
