“Josh was abusive and dangerous. Josh was also incredibly controlling. He insisted on having access to all of my email accounts. If I was on the phone, he had to listen to who I was talking to; he was constantly belittling me,” says Ashley on Tuesday’s Dr. Phil. “He blamed me for all of his problems.”

“That is a lie,” says Josh who claims that Ashely was the abusive one in their relationship.
