Did Chrystal's stepfather sexually abuse her? SHOCKING truth about 'My 600-lb Life' star who weighed 611lbs
Like many other patients that struggle with food addiction, Chrystal Rollins from 'My 600-lb Life' too battled with her urge to eat constantly and failed miserably. Chrystal was aware of her excessive eating and the strain it was putting on her body because of all the weight she was gaining but she couldn't do much to make it stop.
It was at this point that she realized that she needed external help and decided to approach Dr Nowzaradan. She moved her whole life from California to Houston, Texas to move closer to Dr Now as she was very determined to lose weight and get the much-needed weight loss surgery. At the clinic, Dr Now realized that her food addiction stemmed from a much bigger issue that was unresolved. For the same, he recommended that she talk to psychotherapist Dr Matthew J.Paradise so that she could heal from whatever trauma she was carrying around.
Did Chrystal Rollins' stepfather sexually abuse her?
Libby started dating someone when Chrystal was 8-years-old and got married to him a year later. She moved in with her husband along with Chrystal and it was a very unwelcome change for Chrystal at that time. Chrystal was molested by a family member that she didn't name at first. She only revealed that her relationship with her mother soured because of this incident, reason being, Libby asked Chrystal to sweep the matter under the rug and forget about it.
Chrystal felt betrayed by her mother because of this and she moved out and went on to live with her grandmother. Later on in the episode, in a conversation with Dr Paradise, Chrystal was asked to open up about this incident but she wasn't ready to divulge any details about what happened to her and who did it. Dr Matthew had an inkling that it was Chrystal's brother Josh's friends that tried to violate her modesty but she clarified it wasn't the case. Upon further insistence from Dr Paradise, Chrystal returned to the clinic, accompanied by Josh, and made a shocking revelation.
Who is Chrystal Rollin's brother Josh?
Josh is Chrystal's stepbrother who she has remained close to. In fact, Josh helped Chrystal and her daughters move from California to Texas and had decided to stay with them in the state should they need any help. Josh lost his patience with Chrystal and her whining attitude a couple of times in the episode, however, the interaction he had with her in Dr Paradise's clinic changed their relationship forever.
Chrystal finally found the courage to name her molester and it was none other than Josh's father. He was shocked to hear that Chrystal had to go through all the trouble at the hands of his father but this turned a new page in their relationship. He told her that they could now tell each other anything going forward and Chrystal left the clinic with a much lighter heart.
'My 600-lb Life' airs Wednesday at 8 pm ET on TLC.
