          Woman And Husband Claim Her Daughter Is A Manipulative, Attention-Seeker Who Refuses To Be Saved From Anorexia


          April 23, 2018

          “Jordan is obsessed with having the perfect body and has, literally, starved herself to try to get thin,” says Angela of her 23-year-old daughter. “Every single day I worry that my daughter, Jordan, is going to die due to this eating disorder.”

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

          Angela says in the last eight months, Jordan has lost 75 pounds. She and her husband, Bob, say Jordan is emaciated, her bones are protruding from her body, and she’s been hospitalized or rushed to the ER 20 times in the last two years.

          “Jordan’s health has reached a life-or-death situation. Her heart is enlarged,” Angela continues. “The doctors have told Jordan if she doesn’t change things quickly that she will die.”

          After spending $100,000 on treatment and therapy to try to save Jordan’s life, Bob says he’s done because he claims Jordan is a manipulative attention-seeker who refuses to be saved.

          “She likes to be a victim. She just wants to continue to get the attention and blames everybody else,” Bob says. “I’m really, really tired of her excuses. I think she needs to go a boot camp to work her butt off from the butt crack of dawn until dark. She needs to work so hard that she’s starving and she needs something to eat.”

          On Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, hear from Jordan and see what her daily life is like. On Tuesday, Jordan reveals how she believes her stepfather has turned her mother against her. Plus, find out why Jordan’s family has concerns about the boyfriend she has turned to for support. Check here to see where you can watch.
