Phillips: I Aborted My Dad's Possible Love Child

9/23/2009 5:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mackenzie Phillips went public with an incestuous relationship with her father today on "Oprah" -- and says the reason the affair finally ended was because she became pregnant ... and didn't know if her father was the father.

Phillips claims she was raped by her dad, Mamas & the Papas singer John Phillips, while she was 19 -- and the relationship continued for 10 years. The "One Day at a Time" actress says she later became pregnant -- but wasn't sure if John or her then-husband Shane Fontayne was the baby-daddy.

According to Phillips, her father paid for the abortion -- and then she "never let him touch me again."

If this really happened she is at fault as much as he is. She could say "no" she was a big girl. Why didn't she go to the cops maybe she was in love with her father like she would love a man. If she knew her father was that type why did she leave her younger sister with him. If he did it once he can do it again. She has no excuse to be a victum . We will never know the whole truth he is not alive to defend himself.

Dad is not alive to defend himself or be held accountable. Now every I hear a Mamas & the Papas song on the radio, this is what I will be reminded of. Ouch.

I read where she admitted having consenual sex with her dad after the first few times, yes he is a jerk who has a place in hell. but at 19 she knew better than to agree to it. i dontwanttohear"oh I was on drugs, I didn't know what I was doing" I did a lot of drugs in my younger years and I know a lot of peple who did drugs and neither me nor them EVER thought about having consenual sex with a parent. she is a gross as him. perwsonally I dont care for her nor her boo hoo story. "oh please dont hate my dad" she's just nasty.

I didn't know that rape could continue for 10 years. Yes, that's a messed up situation, but you, MacKenzie, share 50% of the blame for the situation. Imagine being her husband back then...

I don't believe a thing she says. Very convienent that she writes a book with these allegations after her fathers death. This way he can't deny or tell his side. What a sad attempt to get back in the spotlight. For christ sake she's on Oprah and that's not a bad gig. What's next the lifetime movie or oprah presents the mackenzie phillips story.Is being in the spotlight that important to you Mackenzie, to sell out your father? I wonder if she would take a polygraph test. Is she sure she wasnt just tripping on acid with these delusions. If she passes then ill believe , until then , Mackenzie you are a no talent loser!!!

To number 3? You ask : Why go public with this?
As an incest survivor you can't imagine what it's like to carry those deep dark secrets and the guilt associated with it. I felt dirty and responsible for what happened. I have recovered from these experiences by exposing this. I never went public but I went to support meetings and told everything that happened and all the feelings associated with these memories. It is very liberating and empowering to express and expose these perpetrators.
