The Lead Singer Of The Mamas & The Papas Raped His Own Daughter And Dated Her For 10 Years Afterward


In the latter half of the ’60s, the Mamas & the Papas dominated the airwaves with their inescapable hit “Monday Monday.” The band released a whopping five studio albums in four short years and sold nearly 40 million records worldwide. Despite the group’s successes, their legacy was tarnished with drug abuse and claims of incest after John Phillips slept with his daughter.

Mackenzie Phillips, the daughter of John Phillips of the Mamas & the Papas, was tortured with a life of drug abuse – it led her to lose her starring role in One Day At A Time and begin touring with a re-formed version of the Mamas & the Papas. On tour, she found herself in her father’s arms. Though Mackenzie Phillips’s sexual relationship with her father started out as rape, it slowly became consensual and the pair had a full-fledged romance that lasted 10 years.

Mackenzie spent much of her life in and out of rehab, always on the brink of relapse and trying her best to stay out of trouble with the law. In 2009, she released a memoir called High on Arrival that detailed the hazy, drug-fueled sexual encounters with her father. Their relationship finally became public and her family was torn apart.

So what led a singer and his bandmate daughter to form a sexual relationship that lasted longer than many marriages? How exactly did the news of incest tear the Phillips family apart? This is the story of John and Mackenzie Phillips.
