Mackenzie Phillips and her dad used to do it

September 23rd, 2009 // 163 Comments

Former child actor Mackenzie Phillips reveals in her upcoming memoirs that she had a “long-term incestuous relationship” with her father John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas, People reports:

“On the eve of my wedding, my father showed up, determined to stop it,” writes Phillips, who was 19 and a heavy drug user at the time. “I had tons of pills, and Dad had tons of everything too. Eventually I passed out on Dad’s bed.”
“My father was not a man with boundaries. He was full of love, and he was sick with drugs. I woke up that night from a blackout to find myself having sex with my own father.”
“Had this happened before? I didn’t know. All I can say is it was the first time I was aware of it.”
Phillips’ life began to spiral out of control. In 1980, she was fired from One Day at a Time because of her constant drug use. That same year, she went to rehab – with her father. Her sexual relationship with him had become consensual.

Uh… Happy Hump Day, everybody?

    What’s wrong with this? It’s just two adults in a consensual relationship. Just like gay marriage.

    @ 50. the Raw bit was a joke, hence the laughing.

    Still waiting for a serious, non-caucasian incest story.

    @17 Bone Chynna?

    There are just some things that should not be shared with the world. And, this is one of them.

    If you read the bible it says we’re all descendants from Adam and Eve. Therefore, every single person who’s ever had sex, ever, is committing incest. I wonder if when he was banging her he compared her to her mom. Try to un-think that, Enjoy your morning people


  7. Gee, funny how this comes out now after her Dad has passed away and she’s trying to sell her book…..

    Did her dad give her the herpes she’s rockin’ in the pics?

  10. Who gives a fuck about John Phillips?

    Did she do it with DWAYNE SCHNEIDER. I suspect Ann Romano would have, if Schneider gave her the opportunity.

    Excellent possibility none of what she says is true. She was messed up and is still messed up. If she’s sober now, her brain is very likely crosswired from decades of drug abuse.

    I think that it is shameful that she is using this to sell books.

    I’ve thought about that before, Randal(l). If we are the spawn of Adam and Eve, we’re all just a bunch of fucked up incest kids. That’s one reason why I think religion is a load of BS. Couldn’t they have thought that story through a little more before they made it up? Or was incest okay in that time? Obviously telling women they are the reason for all evils in the world was okay in that day and age…

    Oh stop it, 52. Unless you’re retarded, you know that two consentual, NON-related people in love is very different than two blood-related people who are capable of producing children with major birth defects. You do understand, don’t you? Or are you a product of the latter?

    @53 I’m Morgan Freeman. I had sex with my daughter and I’m not white.

  15. Joe Jackson

    @53 and 64 I’m Joe Jackson. I had sex with all my kids and I’m not white.

  17. @ 56 – Mr. Semitic Deity loves him some incest! Abrahams inbred kid makes one religion, his sluts bastard makes another religion! What a family!

  18. That’s REALLY sad, sick, and twisted. I hope she’s receiving (or has received) therapy for this.

  19. Phil

    With those glasses on she kinda looks like the Intervention girl who liked to huff. “Walking on Sunshine!”

  20. kanyeGAYFISH

    Kanye is the offspring of his mother and uncle, just look at his lips and listen to him whine and rap. You only get huge lips in the African American race through inbreeding in the hood, just a fact, sorry PPL. Google Sparkling Wiggle and find out for yourself.

    hey all you racist black people (or whatever you call yourselves this week) did you forget about all the stuff your race has done? hmm…. Michael Vick (abused his dogs)…Michael Jackson (molested little boys)…..OJ Simpson (killed his wife).. R Kelly (peed on a girl)…and to top it off Barack Obama… wait hes just a douchebag.

    So maybe someone has yet to give an example of black people incest, but i can assure you that it happens. Did you forget about all that stuff? Or were you just too bust hating white people, doing drugs, taking money from the government and getting your third hooker this month pregnant?

    thanks for the comment byottttttcccccccchhhhhhhhh!

  22. RAF

    the Mamas the Papas and now the Daughters too now that’s one scary reunion concert now we know what really killed Mama Kass

  24. screwracists

    who cares if this family happens to be white…i’d rather take a few incest stories within the white race any day compared to the lazy useless black people with atittude problems, welfare checks, ten million kids who grow up to be gangbagers, and end up shooting people on the street and robbing banks thank you! YOU ROCK NUMBER 71

  25. The Dude

    Try anything once? Not anymore. Cool story tho.

  26. Valerie

    Poor lady. Makes me glad I didn’t have no daddy! YES!

  27. Fartz

    Don’t black folk sing the song “Its a family affair”? That says it all. Can’t we all just get along?

  28. Jo

    This is the sickest story EVER but damn, the comments that were left are the most hilarious!

  29. Martina

    Excuse me? MacKenzie and her father are/were white, so exactly how does race figure in here? Okay racists, that concludes my public service question for the day, you can go back to banging your Khloe Kardashian Companion Dolls.

  30. PoisonIvyLeague

    He gave her the Herp apparently. And hopefully they spread the Herp all over the incestuous place. I bet their dog has it.

  31. NotTheIdiot

    First off, ignore Concerned Troll (53 and others). He’s trying to spark crap. And yes, there is a 99.9% chance he’s white. Ignore him and he’ll leave. He has TROLL in his name.

    But the more important thing is; is there proof of the relationship? Did she tell anyone and they just shrugged it off at the time? If she was still younger then this would more alarming and cared about, but not now since it was so long ago. I’m not saying (if it actually happened) that it should be swept under the rug, but maybe she should get some therapy and talk to a shrink. Maybe the psychologist or psychiatrist can have some insight.

    All the leave are brown
    And The sky is gray
    I just want to know
    Where is Ma-ken-zay

    If I could find her
    I’d get laid today
    Where is that Ma-Ken-Zay
    I want to roll in the hay

  33. Ing

    @9 … the fact that she is able to admit something so horrible pretty much says that she’s already begun dealing with it in a healthy way. Most people just live in denial with a horrible secret.

  34. JohnPhillips

    In my defense. By this time in my life Michelle wouldn’t touch me. It was either Mackenzie or Cass Elliot. Who would you do? Thought so. I rest my case.

  35. Randal(l)

    all these racist comments are disgusting. we’re having a civilized discussion about a dad boning his drugged up daughter while she was passed out, then it turning into a consensual boning and you go and sully it with your hate. for shame.


  36. purple hays

    John should have yacked to death w/Momma & Jimi & Jim & Janis! The free love Woodstock era schtick has finally run it’s course with this one! Even the Jimi Hendrix says: “dayam”!

  37. iola

    Sad but gross.

  38. andy

    buy her a draaaaaaaaaaank

  39. WhyNow

    This is a sad story. Why go public now? The man is dead and all the bad stuff happened over 29 years ago. She’s bringing this up now to help sell books. That’s all that can happen. This is useless.

  40. WhyNow

    This is a sad story. Why go public now? The man is dead and all the bad stuff happened over 29 years ago. She’s bringing this up now to help sell books. That’s all that can happen. This is useless.

  41. It's me

    maybe it happened maybe it didn’t,
    just being told (as usual) to sell some
    fucking book.
    way to go has been (or correctly, never really was)

  42. blame it on ROUGH daddy

    And why is she running around like this is the greatest thing that happen since ” one day at a time” I will buy that book under one condition, if she can close those choppers for half a second.

  43. havoc

    Fucking hippies..


  44. Johnson

    @43….. go to japan… you have a rude awakening… you shouldn’t open your mouth so much cause it exposes your ignorance.

  45. WTF!

    WTF – there is such a thing as too much sharing!!! The dad is one sick puppy and the daughter should go to therapy , not write a book about it!!!

    F-ing weirdos!!



    First of all, I totally just barfed in my mouth while reading this.

    Secondly, why the fuck would she ever voluntarily tell the public about this? Does anyone even give a shit about her memoirs? I’d rather read Chynna Phillips’ memoirs. At least she had some success and isn’t gloating about an incestuous relationship with her own father.

    This will probably stay with me for at least the rest of the day. YUCK!

  47. nastyjay

    im turned on right now

  48. David

    I used to watch her on Disney =(

  49. freekity geek

    TMI, she should have kept it to herself. The whole world does not need to know about it. Family business should be kept private.

  50. diddleysquat

    So he could say “Who’s your daddy” during sexy times and really mean it!
    That probly was a knee-slapper for them.
