Dr. Phil: Chase Blames Johnna For His Problems
Chase blamed most of his problems on his mother Johnna’s poor mothering skills, and said that he would be off to having a normal life if it wasn’t for her. He said that he was often home alone as a child because Johnna was always out chasing men. To add to that, he says that she spends all her money on herself, when she could be helping him.
Right now, Chase is a full-time student living with his grandmother, and he considers her to be way more of a mother than Johnna ever was. In an ideal world, Chase said that his mother would be there for him like she should, and take Ed out of the picture.
Dr. Phil: Chase Still Hasn’t Graduated High School
Chase currently has no high school diploma (at 23) and blames this on his Johnna, who he says came home drunk every night and put him down, which had a negative impact on his grades.
Eventually, Chase moved out when he came home one day and found Ed hanging out on the couch, with the news that he was moving in coming soon after.
Dr. Phil: Chase Pays For Video Games, But Not His Child Support
Chase’s mother accused Chase of playing video games for as many as 12 hours a day, which he denies. He said that he is currently working on his GED, and is planning on being a firefighter afterwards. After he gets back to Texas, Chase says he plans to start looking for a job.
He blames the fact that he has never had a full-time job on the fact that all the jobs he ever worked required you to be there for a certain amount of time before you can go full time.
Where Dr. Phil started to poke holes in Chase’s sob story was when he asked about how Chase funds his video game habit. Chase, while claiming that his son has never gone without child support, admitted to paying for video games. It looks like Chase’s priorities are a little out of line.
