          Why 20-Year-Old Says She Broke No Contact Order With Ex-Boyfriend


          November 12, 2018

          Autumn says for the last two years, she’s been in an abusive relationship with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, D’Andre. She says he has choked her, beaten her and thrown her to the ground, yet she always goes back to him. She says last September, he hurt her so badly, her parents had to pick her up and take her to the E.R.

          Now, the 20-year-old has a no contact order against D’Andre. So why did she spend two days with D’Andre while in Los Angeles for the taping of Dr. Phil? Hear her explanation in the video above.

          Autumn’s parents, Angelica and Sean, share their feelings about the situation.

          “We’re trying to figure out what’s going on in our daughter’s mind where she thinks it’s OK to put her safety at risk, where she thinks it’s OK to go meet up with somebody who’s openly expressed that he has a desire to kill her,” Sean says in the video above. “He’s going to take her life; there’s no doubt in my mind. And if he doesn’t, she’s going to take her own.”
