Laura and her former partner, John, have six children between them, including their youngest, 16-year-old Angelina, the daughter they have together. TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: At your final breaking point?
Laura says she and John, “got along fine” until he started thinking she was picking on his daughter, Jessie, who was 5 when Laura moved in.
“That couldn’t be further from the truth,” says John on Monday’s Dr. Phil. He claims that although they have Angelina, and have been living together for over 16 years, he and Laura haven’t been a couple for nearly a decade.
John says he currently lives in the garage, while Laura, Angelina, Jessie and Jessie’s 14-month-old daughter live in the main house. He claims Laura is a hoarder
and says that’s part of what drove him to move out of the house.
“This has nothing to do with me sticking up for Jessie over her or anything like that,” says John. “This is a matter of, I believe she has a psychosis that I have not been able to deal with.”
Laura says she blames John’s drinking
and Jessie’s dislike of her for the collapse of their relationship.
