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?

    I’m gonna take a big guess that this is a crock of shit. She promised a big secret in her book, and she had to make it better than the other twisted crap we’re used to…

    And…true or not….to say this stuff when her dad is no longer around and can’t defend himself? She is a loser. The women in his life who knew him are saying these are all lies: that he would never have touched his kids that way.

    Mackenzie Phillips disclosed the affair to her sister Chyna Phillips in the mid nineties….Chyna admitted as such to a reporter today.

    Yuck, yuck ew. & if its not true she is really pathetic….

    omg #82 that shit is hilarious!!!!! I couldn’t recall a song from the mommas and poppas till that. LMAO.

    oh and… how is this even at all about race..? some people are DUMB.

    no wait,,,, most people are DUMB.

    oh and if you were waiting for a black incestious story:
    Robing Quivers from the Howard Stern show was molested by her father.
    END of Discussion.

    She’s just jealous because Valerie’s career has rebounded.

    Give her some slack. A father doing that to you is horrible, many of us wouldn’t know this was happening if there weren’t people who decided to speak out about it.

    If you look up on the internet, you’ll find forums where incestous people meet to talk about their consensual relationships with their brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, etc. This world has gone mad!

    Do you still want to save the planet for these people?

  10. Darth

    Wtf is this all true?!

  11. Rhialto

    Insanity or not a father like this should be hanged in public.

  12. Nero

    He should be hanged in public with his chopped off penis stuffed in his mouth!

  13. From
    “Dad said, ‘We could just run away to Fiji, and we could take [his children] Bijou and Tamerlane and raise them as our own,’ ” Phillips recounted to Winfrey. “He was delusional, talking about living with me as man and wife, and raising my siblings, his children, as our children. The moment he tried to make it romantic, I thought, we’re going to hell for this.” But that wasn’t the moment that caused Phillips to end it completely. It wasn’t until the mother of one found herself pregnant again and didn’t know whether the father of the baby was her then-husband, Shane Fontayne, or her own father. “I was in a relationship with my son’s father as well; he knew nothing,” she said. “He’s one of the dearest men and one of the best parents to our son. He was always there for me. I came up pregnant, and I had an abortion. And I never let [John Phillips] touch me again.”

    Imagine if she actually followed through and had his baby when she got pregnant at 29 instead of having an abortion and it turned out that Papa John was the papa/grandpapa and the baby turned out to be a retarded girl that Papa John could then feel free to dope up on drugs and have sex with just to continue the chain of abuse?

    Only a thoroughly Mongolian Punishment would bring justice to what he did to his own flesh and blood!

  15. incest is very common. it’s fucked up and distasteful to me personally, but it really is common place.

  16. Walter

    Dad must have been pretty loaded and/or pretty desperate.

  17. Ganja

    This is why everyone needs to stay away from the hard drugs and smoke pot. There is no way she would have had sex with her dad if she was stoned. She is brave to talk about this. I hope she finds a way to stay off the drugs.

  18. @82 = Fucking brilliant! LOLOLOLOL!

    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.

    Racism is not applied to black people only, you can be racist towards white, hispanic, asian, etc people.

  20. joblo

    I guess the white dumbasses don’t have anything to say here. What can they say? I do not see any articles like this about blacks or Latinos. I guess all the stories are true about them. Perveted…perverted people.

  21. Ryan O'Neal

    Wow, that’s creepy. I only hit on my daughter by asking her out for a drink, while Farrah’s corpse was still warm. Sure, I’ve done some sick stuff, like banging, Melanie Griffith, Tatum’s young teenage friend at the time. And sure, Tatum walked in on us while I was balls deep. But, next to McKenzie’s Dad, those things are nothing! Am I still in the running for Hollywood’s, Dad Of The Year? In case anyone’s keeping track, Redmond is doing quite well. And my other son? What other son?

  22. Jessie

    Simply: eew.

  23. Boogeroo Boogaloo

    If I was Jessica Simpson’s daddy I’d be tappin that sweet ass all day and all night.

    To Anon, the brainless mouth from Alabam:
    Let name you some real bad shit that the people you are bad mouthin’ have:
    1. When your shit eatin people blundered into Africa, our ancestors should’ve fed their asses to the Army Ants, one at a time, instead of being “curious about your murderous Culture”, seriously.
    2. Real sorry about killing off some of y’all s f…ing places (dogs of course). We promise to do penance by not talking the long histor of Royal Incest ova (you know WE TOO DumB) in Europee..eew ( You know, blue blood and stuff???!!!!). Ooop-s, said I wasn’t gon’ tellIT-Damn…too late!

    I am gon’ tell bout that Czzzarina who let the royal stable stud hosses do the break back on her til it died of exhaustion! What? You didn’t know that????? Man, you betta learn how to read fo’ you go shootin’ off yo mouth about “the race shit!!!” Oh, yea how bout yo mamma ‘nem on the East Coast o Africa (hear they call the place mouth waterin’ meat’s ville) leave urope by chartered planes ‘n shit and take their ‘ol wrinkled bodies and hire the bros to do what they’s husband can’t do.
    Normally I don’t pay any attention to the ignorant among your hoss race, because hum,ans ARE NOT members of any race, unless at some kind of track-(another one of ya’lls “stupid acadumbic” blunders), THEY ARE members of ethnic groups, language groups, named by the Lands of their origin. Oh, by the damned way, all you pink skins are 65%N..N…N…NNNN… anyway,specially if yo folks escaped from Western Europe. So STFU, or I’ll come back with a shit tub full of documentation and proof and show your lil arrogant a.. WHERE YA’LL STOOD IN THE EYES OF THE WHOLE WORLD 3000 YEARS AGO-as recognized by you own scholars at least a couple ‘a hundred years ago.

  27. The thing about incest – it’s the lazy person’s way for not having go far to get your rocks off…

    My God – haven’t we learned the reason why this is taboo? It has the high potential of creating defective offspring…aka – not good for the specie!

    That being said – a study of abnormal and sexual psychology will gather a HUGE amount of studies that point to the fact that although it is taboo here – this is not a huge deal in other tribes of people around the world…but they live in huts and are devoid of television.

    I’d rather sit here – keyboard firmly under my hands – with a little barf in my mouth – and scream “fucking gross” at the screen… than be in a little hut – under my own father…to help me pass the time.


    Thanks Mac – for that piece of TMI. Hope your happy.

    what the hell are you talking about number 127? your english is broken and doesn’t make any sense at all..there’s this new thing called spell should try it and also they have rosetta stone to teach you the english language so you might want to get on that.

  30. whatareyoutalkingabout

    sorry 127 that was meant for number 126

  31. Yoda

    Oh please, I’m not buying much of this skanky drug whore’s story. Daddy raped her at 19, so ok, that’s horrid, but then she went back for more for 10 years? Please, the cunt enjoyed being Daddy’s Little Whore.

  32. Del

    Wow, that sad.



  35. puhleez

    LOL that this is “white people shit.” Whatever, you can have it if it makes you feel better. You know Morgan Freeman made sweet love to his granddaughter for 10 years right?

    The point is, this stuff happens in Hollywood all the time, because anything goes here. The weirder you are, the more interesting you seem. No one bats an eye and that is what makes Hollywood awesome.

  36. Lotofidiotshere

    Concern Troll and other bashers,

    The most famous African-American writer in the world is Toni Morrison. Her first novel ‘The Bluest Eye’ is — hate to break it to you — about incest and rape within the black community.

    You might than went to go and read the most acclaimed African-American novel, well, ever . . . Raph Ellison’s ‘Invisible Man’. Before you get three chapters in you’ll have another story of incest and rape within the black community.

    I hate to feed the bigots and morons (I especially love the anti-60s rants from the Republican yahoos who can’t deal with what an incompetent disaster Bush was), but, man, you, too, are being ignorant..

    Very, very ignorant.

    Okay, I’ll let the talk-radio listening imbeciles get back to ranting because the country is now in the hands of intelligent, industrious people (current administration) who don’t have a record of unprecedented failure behind them: two botched wars, having to “nationalize” the banks (have someone explaint to you what socialism really is, you morons!), economic collapse, etc., etc.

  37. gross

    no they weren’t from the south, f. u.

  38. f'edup

    To number 126. A whole lot of good reading did you brother! Your people sold you off to the white folks! Once ole Amistad was a free man and went back to Africa, guess who he became? THE BIGGEST SLAVE TRADER THE WORLD HAD EVER SEEN!!!!!!!!!! I don’t like dick, never have, never will and I will tell you one damned thing…… where I am from, don’t know too many women who would be caught dead with a black man. I do not understand where you get your skewed view on history (perhaps BET) but you need a real education so you can learn how YOUR people keep your race down. It is not white people over in Africa killing black people, it is black on black crime. It is not white people in this country killing your people, it is black on black crime. You all crack me the F up man….. All that gangsta rap shit keeping your down, drugs, prostitutes, ghetto’s and well…

    You just wish you had a piece of white ass to play with, and mad cause they do not want you unless they are crack whores or trash. I love how everything turns into race with you people! It is purely laughable! hahahahahahahahahaha If a white person said all of that shit stated above the NAACP would be knocking down their door, but it is all in good fun when you guys do it.

  39. chloe

    I feel sorry 4 her-explains why she’s so fucked up. Did you hear the statement from her stepmother? What a twisted bitch. She managed to deny it & blame Mackenzie @ the same time.

  40. Danklin24

    This cokehead must have needed more money so she did an interview. Jesus, just fade away Mackenzie. You’re not relevant anymore. Why is she telling this story 20 years after the fact? No one gives a shit. Sick bitch.

  41. take this ugg for a change?

  42. Ick

    Who would actually admit shit like this?! I presume this is akin to how Lindsay Lohan’s inevitable memoirs will read. Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

  43. Rancid

    “…a man with boundaries. He was full of love, and he was sick with drugs.”

    I want that written on my tombstone.

  44. 3000 years ago

    3000 years ago western europe was essentially celtic and germanic and I am pretty sure no black jungle animals would have gone there laughing. They would have ended up with their head on a pole. Have you ever heard of stonehenge? Hundreds of sites like that. They were used for astronomy.
    Name one article of archeological interest in Africa my good ape.

  45. wd

    she’s a lying sack of shit who will say anything for drug money.she is so
    ugly she cant sleep her way to get drugs.

    One dad at a time…The new theme song

    This is it, (this is it)

    This is it (this is it)
    Missionary and now you know that dad’s seen it all

    Dad’s down there and enjoys the sight
    We’ll keep on having afternoon delight
    For ten more years I’ll f*ck him right
    One dad at a time, One dad at a time

    So get off your feet (so get off your feet)
    Bed time stories read with some rum
    Then my daddy he’s going to come…
    One dad at a time, 3650 times in my life time.

    One dad at time…..

    LIAR LIAR LIAR — simply sad that a has-been, nobody needs to liar about her dead dad to get back into the limelight and earn an income. May she rot in Hell.

  49. Jen

    wow at the story, wow at the comments. i love this site :)

  50. Anthony

    I think it’s fucked that anybody gives a shit about this stupid crazy bitch and her fucked up story. She should be speaking with a therapist and not divulging this kind of shit to the public. It’s sick!
