Phil grew up among the oil fields in North Texas but was forced to move to Kansas when his father got an internship.

According to Debbie, Phil didn’t want to move from Texas.

“Daddy made him come up here because he wanted to keep an eye on him,” Debbie told The Kansas City Star in 2002.

In an interview with The Kansas City Star, Debbie described what Phil was like as a boyfriend. According to her, he was ”kind” and ”sensitive”.


Things fell out of place after they got married and Debbie made some nasty accusations against Phil, claiming that he was dominant against her.

Phil wanted her to stay at home, also to work on her chest and there were cases of him cheating on her.

”When I confronted him about his infidelities, he didn’t deny these girls and told me that it had nothing to do with his feelings toward me, to grow up, that’s the way it was in the world,” Debbie said in 2002.
