Chynna Phillips Enters Rehab; Anxiety Partly Due to Mackenzie Phillips Revelations

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates




Chynna Phillips has entered a rehabilitation facility for anxiety, her representative confirms to Gossip Cop.

Last year, Phillips’ half-sister Mackenzie Phillips made waves by revealing a decade-long sexual relationship with their father, John Phillips of The Mamas and The Papas. Chynna publicly supported Mackenzie while appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

But a source close to Phillips tells Gossip Cop she’s been “having a hard time since the summer, since [Mackenzie’s] book came out.” The source adds, “It’s been tough on her.” We’re told, “She’s really depressed,” and “trying to figure out things” while receiving help for anxiety.

The same source tells Gossip Cop that Chynna Phillips “has a big heart” and was “trying to do the right thing” for her half-sister, but in retrospect feels some of what she said in support of Mackenzie wasn’t consistent with her thoughts on the matter.

Phillips has three children with husband Billy Baldwin.
