Taylor describes her relationship with her mother, Michelle, as “toxic.” The 23-year-old says she has a lot of built-up anger toward Michelle because she claims her mother’s drinking ruined her childhood, and since getting sober, Michelle hasn’t taught her the skills she needs to take care of herself.

“Taylor gets violent when her anger takes over,” says Michelle who claims her daughter has punched her, put her in a choke hold, and left bruises on her neck.

“I have hit her and slapped her,” admits Taylor. “No one else can get me as angry as that woman can. She pushes my buttons to the point where I see red.”
