Christina and her stepmother, Patty, claim that Christina’s father, Jerry Sr., is enabling her brother’s drug addiction – and if he doesn’t stop, Jerry Jr. is going to die.
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have family drama that needs that help?
“If my brother didn’t have my dad’s money, his addiction wouldn’t be as bad as it is now,” Christina says. “Just last month, my brother was arrested for charges on distribution. My dad hired one of the best attorneys and was able to get the case dismissed.” The young woman says as soon as her dad bails out her brother, Jerry Jr. starts getting high again.
Patty, who says that her husband has given his son millions of dollars, adds, “My husband’s enabling has basically crippled and disabled his son.”
