Mackenzie Phillips Reveals Troubled Incestuous Past With Father

September 23, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – There isn’t much celebrities can do or say that will shock us in this age of gossip blogs and Entertainment Tonight. But Mackenzie Phillips admission of her sexual relationship with her father appeared to be enough to get through the usual scandals.

Mackenzie tells a disturbing story in her new memoirs, ‘High On Arrival’, about her father showing up at her door the night before her wedding, shooting her up, and then raping her while she was in a blackout.

“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.”

John Phillips, the founder of Mamas and the Papas, has struggled with drugs for years, as had his daughter, and according to Mackenzie had shot her up the first time.

After their first tragic encounter the night before her wedding, Mackenzie confronted her father about the rape.

“You mean when we made love?” she wrote him as responding in her book.

Mackenzie is set to appear on Oprah later this week to discuss what happened, and the ten year affair that came after that night. Her book details the affair in great detail, including her father asking her to run away with him to Fiji, where he believed they could live openly as a couple.

John Phillips passed away in 2001.
