Jerry says when he lost his attraction to his wife, Kristine, he started visiting dating websites to meet women. He says over the last five years, he’s been talking to four different women online – and sending them money – and says he is currently dating a woman named “Kimberly,” with whom he says he has been communicating with for the last year-and-a-half. He says he’s talked to her five or six times over the phone and even met her in person once.
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Caught in the middle of a family feud?
“I met her at the airport,” Jerry says. “We just sat in there and talked for two or three hours.” He adds that they also shared passionate kisses.
Kristine, however, says she believes her husband is being scammed and that none of the women are really whom he believes they are. She claims he’s depleted their life savings and that they are on the verge of losing their house because of his online activity.
“Did you actually meet her or did you just say that to get people off your back at the time?” Dr. Phil asks Jerry.
“I actually met ‘Kimberly,’” Jerry replies, adding that he knows it was her because she looked like the woman in the photo he had seen.
