          Parents Of Woman Who Claims She’s The Reincarnation Of Pocahontas Say Daughter Is ‘Mentally Ill’


          January 4, 2019

          “My daughter’s mentally ill. She needs help,” says Robin about her 24-year-old daughter, Ayanna. “She believes medication is poison and that her dad and I are trying to kill her.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Know someone with outrageous behavior?

          Robert, Ayanna’s father, adds, “Ayanna, right now, is very hostile toward me. She’s very violent.”

          Ayanna insists she’s not mentally ill and claims her parents want to squash her free spirit by medicating her, turning her into a zombie, and killing her.

          The parents say Ayanna’s behavior has “escalated” since she turned 18 and that they fear for her safety.

          “I believe she is imagining a number of things,” Robert says. “She has changed from a sweet, young lady to a complete opposite person.”

          “I’d say, in the past three years, she’s becoming a little delusional,” Robin claims. “Something terrible is going to happen to her because Ayanna is impulsive, and I think she’s going to wind up not just homeless, but dead.”

          In the video above, Dr. Phil reviews what Robin and Robert call Ayanna’s “irrational” behaviors, including speaking in tongues and attacking her father. How does Ayanna respond? And on Friday’s episode, Ayanna reveals to her parents that she believes she is the reincarnation of Pocahontas. Check here to see where you can watch.
