This poor lady was the daughter of the Mama's and The Papa's, John Phillips who got her started on cocaine when she was 12 (YES TWELVE) He wrote about it in his pathetic bio years ago. She was left to fend for herself whle the adults around her like her dad, and his band mates tripped on LSD and everything else...I always felt so sorry for her...she doesn't deny any of what her father wrote, but as she got older she took responsibility for her own actions...she did get clean but her career was no longer. John Phillips and Robert Downey, Senior

This is testimony to how truly addictive cocaine and heroin are. McKenzie, you beat this before and you can beat it again. Everyone is rooting for you. I pray for your recovery.

Gotta love it when people who have $$$$ and have had everything handed on a silver platter are as messed up as this. What a total loser and pig,how much you wanna bet she turns up dead next because of the pressure?? What pressure? Give me her money and she can have mine and try and raise a family on a middle class income and then she'll see what pressure is,obvoiusly my Mom and Dad aren't famous and rich but we live honestly and more importantly,drug free clean lives. This pig will be found dead on a couch with a needle in one arm and a coke straw up her nose. Good Riddance

Why is this news? This is par for the course for her. The bigger story would be if she went through airport security clean...

"Mackenzie has been clean and sober since 1992 -- until August 27, 2008 when she was busted at LAX with heroin and cocaine."

Clean and sober since 1992, my A$$! She was just stupid enough to get caught THIS time!

I remember her in American Graffiti, but I wish she would just do the rest of us decent people a favor and JUST DIE. Stop absorbing more resources than you deserve.

This shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody. Her parents were big time dopers. Saw Michelle Phillips on a PBS show-she still looks stoned. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Did she not get the memo? You are subject to search at an airport! She needs to hook up with Tatum O'Neal.

Gee, that's too bad. I remember her well. I guess once a drugee, always (almost) a drugee. Her father was also a heroin addict. Such a shame people waste the only life they have on something so stupid like drugs.

She is a Powder packin' Mama from way back....The "Devils Dandruff" is a tough habit to kick! Got to start over with day 1 of sobriety.
