“My relationship with my daughter Taylor, right now, is broken and in turmoil,” says Susan. “Taylor’s making me sound a lot worse than I really am.” TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Expolsive family drama?
Susan claims she’s a devoted mother to Taylor and her younger siblings and that she’s made many sacrifices raising them as a single mom.
“My husband committed suicide 14 years ago. I had no life insurance,” Susan shares. “I think that that’s where a lot of it starts is that suicide. I have devoted, literally, 14 years of everything that I’ve had to those kids.”
Taylor, however, claims her mother made her life a “living hell.” She claims growing up, their house was filled with feces, garbage, fleas, empty pantries, and that they moved 16 times. She says she escaped the filth when her mom kicked her out after seeing one of her Instagram posts – an accusation Susan denies.
“I’ve had it with being attacked by Taylor,” Susan says. “I’m not here to bring up everything in the past. I think it’s ridiculous that we have to be here on the Dr. Phil
show to fix this.”
