Mackenzie Phillips: I Had Sex With My Father

Child star Mackenzie Phillips has a new memoir to promote, which means she's digging up the most scandalous details of the book and discussing it with the press.

Just yesterday we reported that Mackenzie was a guest star on Oprah, where she discussed her excessive drug use and her first experience with cocaine (Her father John Phillips, who was the lead singer of the Mamas and the Papas, shot her up).

And if you thought that was scandalous, wait until you hear what she told People magazine! "Don't hate my father," she started, before going into details about the night she had sex with her own father.

"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. For a moment I was in my body, in that horrible truth, and then I slid back into a blackout."

Although she had been a heavy drug user up to this point, it was after her incestuous relationship with her father that her life really spun out of control. She went to rehab--with her father--but shortly after she relapsed again.

She was arrested last year for heroin possession, so it's hard to tell if she's 100% clean now, but at least her sexual relationship with her father, which she once called "consensual" is finally over. This just goes to show you, lifestyles of the rich and famous aren't always as glamorous as you think.
