New York (ANI): American actress Laura Mackenzie Phillips has gone
back on her earlier claim that her incestuous relationship with her
father, John Phillips, was consensual.
Phillips, 50, who is the daughter of the lead singer of The
Mamas & The Papas, retracted her claim of the relationship
being consensual on the 'Joy Behar Show" on February 2.
“I"d like to reframe my word consensual," the New York Daily
News quoted her as saying. “As I was writing 'High on Arrival", I
thought, this word, it kept sitting wrong with me. But I used it
for lack of a better word.
“Since then, I"ve been schooled by thousands of incest survivors
all across the world that there really is no such thing as
consensual incest due to the inherent power a parent has over a
child. So, I wouldn"t necessarily call it a consensual relationship
at this time," she added.
