Jessica claims her ex-boyfriend, Jason, cheated on her throughout their 18-month relationship and has also accused him of being emotionally and verbally abusive. She also alleges he’s been refusing to give her child support for their 6-month-old son.
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Betrayed by a spouse or family member?
Jason, a former Reality TV contestant on CMT’s Redneck Island, denied cheating on Jessica until his former co-star, Katie, confessed they had a sexual affair during Jessica’s pregnancy.
Jason had previously accused Jessica of being jealous and manipulative. He’s admitted to calling her names, but denies her allegation that he’s a “deadbeat dad.”
“Do you want a relationship with him going forward?” Dr. Phil asks, offering to set up the former couple with professional help.
“I don’t think it’s possible,” is Jessica’s first response. Then, “Yes, I would be interested.” “Absolutely,” responds Jason. “I’ve denied it forever with her but now I would definitely take it.”
