          Woman Denies Claim She Used Daughter’s College Deposit For Expensive Shoes


          May 11, 2018

          “I resent my mom for uprooting me my senior year of high school. That set me on this collision course that I’m currently living,” says Stephanie, a 32-year-old who has been living with her mother since dropping out of college nearly a decade ago.

          Stephanie claims Michele ruined her chances for a full scholarship to the college of her choice when she allegedly used Stephanie’s tuition deposit to buy herself an expensive pair of shoes.

          Michele vehemently denies Stephanie’s claim but admits she was responsible for missing a deadline that caused the check to arrive too late. “Stephanie needs to get over what happened to her and move on with her life,” says Michele.

          Michele claims that since Stephanie dropped out of school, she has racked up two DUI’s, three car crashes, a suspended license and multiple visits to rehab due to her alcohol addiction, and hasn’t been able to keep a job for more than a few months. She claims she’s spent nearly $300,000 supporting Stephanie over the years and just wants to be “done.”

          In addition to housing and feeding her daughter, Michele says she buys the alcohol Stephanie drinks daily, “just to shut her up.”

          “I’m a classic enabler, I admit it. I will not throw her out on the street because I have the anchor around my neck of her disease.”

          Mother and daughter each say they carry resentment toward the other. Can Dr. Phil help?
