Siblings Jill and Tim claim that their stepfather, Vince, was verbally and physically abusive to them growing up and that their mother did nothing to stop Vince – or to protect them. TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Ready to confront someone?
“When I was around 16, my stepfather became violent with me because I would not drink a shake. I was suffering from anorexia at the time and I wasn’t comfortable,” Jill claims. “Vince dragged me down the stairs by my hair. Vince threw me on the ground. He was standing over me grabbing my wrists and shaking me and saying he was going to kill me.”
Tim claims, “One time, he had pinned me up against the wall. The second time he pressed me into a cabinet, pushed me up. We had an indent on our cabinet and left me with a cut under my eye.” WATCH: 35-Year-Old Says He Wants His Mom To Admit That She Is Responsible For Ruining His Life
Vince admits to being stern with the kids but says he just wanted to bring some order into his house.
“When I met Tim and Jill, they seemed to be little punks,” Vince says. “I don’t think I was abusive. It might have been because of the generation or how I was brought up, and for that, I’m sorry. I never hit him with a closed fist. I never even spanked him. We were good parents to those kids.” WATCH: Woman Claims Mom Is ‘Very Narcissistic And Manipulative’
