          “The moment I start talking about taking responsibility, he gets very negative. Very aggressive,” she continues.

          Vera says she’s living with stage-four cancer and claims she has to do everything for Michael when she should be taking care of herself, but Michael claims his mother isn’t as sick as she says she is.
