Dr Phil: Emotional Relationship With a Minor
Melissa came to Dr. Phil to clear the tabloid rumors about her and T.J. She said she wants people to know there was no premeditation in her relationship with T.J., and she never set out to be with a 16-year-old boy. T.J. told her when they met that he was 18 and it later came out that he was 16. By that point, she said they were in a deep, emotional relationship.
