          Why Parents Claim Their Former Social Media Star Daughter Is Spinning Out Of Control


          May 16, 2018

          Taylor claims she went from being a teenage social media star at 14 to being bullied, harassed, and a victim of cyberstalking.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Relative gone from big success to a total mess?

          “I feel like it’s been a huge blow to my self-esteem. I used to be so confident; now I’m just down in the dumps,” says the 20-year-old, claiming she still gets hacked at least once a day.

          “It’s eight years later. If you knew then what you know now, would you have ever made the first click of the mouse?” Dr. Phil asks Taylor on Wednesday’s episode.

          “I really, honestly, do not think so,” she responds.

          Taylor’s parents, Randy and Cathy claim the whole family has been targeted online, and that the stress has caused her to spin out of control.

          Taylor admits she uses drugs, including Xanax and heroin “once in a while,” but says it’s not every day. “I think I have my drug use under control. If people think I have a really big drug problem, they’re just really making a big deal out of it.”

          Why do Randy and Cathy say they believe Taylor’s boyfriend, Anthony, has been a bad influence on her?
