          Woman Claims Ex Is A ‘Bad Dad,’ Drags Young Kids Into Custody Feud


          January 12, 2017

          Crystal claims a year after she married Christian, their relationship turned into a living hell, and now they’re in a contentious custody battle.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Conflict so big it needs a Dr. Phil solution?

          “Christian used God to control me and wanted me to believe that no one would want me,” Crystal claims. “It’s always been what Christian believes, or it’s an argument, a fight and violence and throwing the scripture at you the same time of throwing something else at you. And, he says he hears God talking to him.”

          She claims her now ex-husband was violent with her, including trying to rip a ring off her finger, picking her up by the throat and throwing her on concrete, and ripping shorts off her. She says he was also violent toward her son.

          “He has choked my son to the point that every blood vessel in his eye ruptured,” Crystal claims.

          Christian adamantly denies being violent toward Crystal or their children.

          Crystal says that Christian has failed to return their daughter after visitations and she’s had to file two emergency custody orders. Now she refuses to let him see their 12-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son.

          On Thursday’s episode of Dr. Phil, hear from Christian and his new wife, who claim Crystal is a two-faced vindictive liar who dangles the children in Christian’s face and uses them as a weapon to get money. Is Crystal protecting her children or is she keeping them away from their father out of spite? Check here to see where you can watch.
