          Teen Shares Family Secret That She Kept Hidden For 10 Years


          May 4, 2018

          “When I was 4 or 5, my oldest brother, Jan, molested me,” says Marie, now 19. “It happened whenever we were left alone together.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have family drama that needs that help?

          “After I abused her, I was very scared, and I begged her not to tell anyone,” Jan says. “I gave her money to not say anything to my family.”

          Marie says she kept the secret for 10 years before she told their mom, Shirley, who raised them in an extremely strict Catholic household. Jan says when his mom confronted him, he broke down and still feels guilty to this day.

          “I was not completely relieved after that, because we could already see my sister beginning to be rebellious, beginning to sneak out and was drinking underage,” Jan says. “I’m really afraid that what I did to Marie may have caused her to end up where she is today.”

          Marie says that since she was kicked out of their home for voting for Hillary Clinton, she drinks, has been in jail and meets older men on the Internet and dates them for money. Could the abuse by her brother be triggering her behavior? See what Dr. Phil thinks on Wednesday’s episode. Check here to see where you can watch.
