Pete claims ex-wife Pamela worked to alienate his children from him after he divorced her and left the family. He eventually married his former massage therapist, Lori.
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is your family a stressed mess?
Pete’s sister, Audrey, agrees with him about the alienation saying, “I think that Pamela’s actions destroyed the boys’ relationship with their dad.” Audrey says her ex-sister-in-law is “bitter about her divorce from Pete and has not been able to move on with her life.”
Pamela claims Pete chose Lori over his boys, and that’s what caused them to distance themselves from him.
Audrey also says her nephew has left hateful messages for her on voicemail. “He’s a very angry young man right now.” She says she’s afraid of Joseph and thinks “he could become violent.”
Joseph says he wants nothing to do with Pete, Lori or his aunt.
