          Woman Accused Of Lying To Daughter About The Identity Of Her Father Tells Her Side of the Story


          January 3, 2018

          Sherri claims that her mother, Betty, lied to her her entire life about the identity of her biological father. Sherri says she thought the man who raised her was her father, but when she was 21, she received a letter from a little girl who claimed that they shared a father, Wayne – a different man than the man who she believed was her dad. She says she confronted her mother, who she says denied the claims and then snatched the letter and hid it from Sherri for 15 years.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Betrayed by a loved one?

          Betty says she was certain that Sherri’s father was the same man whom she dated for 40 years and fathered her other daughter, Dana. She maintains that she never lied to Sherri and barely knew Wayne.
