Marla says she noticed a dramatic change in her son, DJ’s, behavior three years ago, while he was away at college. She and her husband, David, claim DJ talks to people who don’t exist, claims he’s a successful music producer and believes he’s engaged to the singer Rihanna.
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in Crisis?
“So, are you engaged?” Dr. Phil asks DJ on Wednesday’s episode.
