          “My ex-wife Crystal won’t let me see our children because she thinks I’m messed up on drugs,” says Christian who admits he used to have a drug problem but says he’s now sober.

          Christian’s new wife, Amy, adds, “Crystal is fake and two-faced, and she’s vindictive. Crystal deliberately sends text messages to start arguments. She says, ‘You’re a bad father. You’re a piece of [expletive].”

          Crystal says she will not allow Christian to see their 12-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son because she claims he is a “bad dad” who torments her, refuses to bring the kids home after visitation and will not pay child support because God told him not to. Watch her story here.

          Turning to Dr. Phil for help, Christian, who hasn’t seen his children in eight weeks, says, “I don’t know why Crystal’s become so resentful and so hateful.”
