Larry says that his daughter, Taylor, was a “phenomenal” athlete, a “wonderful” dancer, and a great student when she was growing up. He says after he and his ex-wife, Jan, divorced when Taylor was 9, he became more of the disciplinarian, and Jan “acted more as a friend than a parent.” 

“Taylor is very manipulative. Spoiled would be a pretty basic word, and she knew she could control her mother,” Larry claims.
Larry says when Taylor was 18, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dance career – and that’s when things went downhill with his daughter.

“When Taylor came back from L.A., the eating disorder began to flourish. Her mother gave her a job, overpaid her for the work that she did. They ended up moving in together, and I think it just became toxic,” Larry says.
Larry says he last saw Taylor, now 32, in January 2018 – and that meeting shocked him to his core. Find out what he says happened and why he hasn’t seen or spoken to his daughter since in the video above.
On Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, "My Spoiled Daughter Falsely Accused Me of Sexual Abuse," hear what Jan says about her daughter’s behavior, and Taylor opens up about her struggles. Then, on Tuesday, "What’s Behind Taylor’s Alleged Flashbacks?," Dr. Phil questions if mother and daughter may have a dysfunctional relationship, which could be preventing Taylor from healing. And, Larry insisted on taking a polygraph to prove his innocence. See what the results reveal. Check local listings to see where you can watch.
