Kristina claims her boyfriend, Jayson, choked her near to the point of unconsciousness while she was pregnant – and she claims he dragged her in front of a mirror to force her to watch him do so.

"I wasn’t unconscious, but he did choke me while I was pregnant and told me to look at my face in the mirror and it was purple,” Kristina claims.

Jayson does not deny the incident occurred, though he disputes that he intentionally had his hands around her neck, and says he never intended to “intentionally cause physical harm” to the mother of his unborn child.

“At the time, I was up against the wall and didn’t know what to do, how to show her I didn’t want to lose her,” Jayson tells Dr. Phil when asked about the incident. “I wanted her to look in the mirror and see my face.”
