How much is Mackenzie Phillips Net worth?

American singer and actress Mackenzie Phillips has a net worth of $1 million. Mackenzie Phillips is well-known for her roles in “American Graffiti,” “One Day at a Time,” and “So Weird.”

She was arrested for cocaine possession in 2008 and participated on the 2010 episode of “Celebrity Rehab.” In her 2009 memoir, “High on Arrival,” she accused her late musician father, John Phillips, of giving her cocaine when she was a child. She also said she had a decade-long, consenting sexual relationship with her father that resulted in an abortion.

Early Years

Phillips was born in Alexandria, Virginia on November 10, 1959. John Phillips and Susan Stuart Adams were her parents, and she had one brother, Jeffrey, and many half-siblings, Tamerlane, Bijou, and Chynna. Her father was a member of the band The Mamas & Papas.

Phillips’s family relocated to California when he was a youngster. She attended California’s Highland Hall Waldorf School in Northridge. Phillips created a band with three of her classmates when she was 12 years old. During one of the group’s concerts, a casting agent observed them, and Phillips was offered an audition for a role in the 1973 film “American Graffiti,” which she won.

Career

In the film “American Graffiti,” Phillips portrayed Carol Morrison. When “American Graffiti” was released, Phillips was 13 years old, and the picture helped propel her to popularity. Her popularity soared during the early 1970s. She was cast in episodes of television programs and films such as “Go Ask Alice,” “Moving On,” “Miles to Go Before I Sleep,” “Baretta,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” and “Rafferty and the Gold Dust Twins.”

In 1975, Phillips was cast as the boy-obsessed teen Julie Cooper in the television series “One Day at a Time,” which further propelled her to popularity. Phillips was one of the two adolescent children that the CBS drama featured a divorced mother raising. Phillips continued on the program for its first three seasons, but by the late 1970s he was dealing with substance problems. As a result, she was asked to take a six-week break from the program before being sacked in 1980 owing to her conduct. After completing treatment in 1981, she was brought back to the program, but she relapsed in 1982 and was dismissed again. This time, her character was eliminated from the show.

She subsequently began traveling as a singer with The New Mamas and Papas, a reformed version of The Mamas & the Papas. She toured with the band throughout the mid-1980s and early 1990s.

In 1999, Phillips got the part of Molly Phillips, a fictitious rock singer, on the Disney Channel sitcom “So Weird.” She also starred in “Double Teamed,” a 2002 Disney Channel original film. She has starred in several television series in the 2000s, including “ER,” “Without a Trace,” “7th Heaven,” “Cold Case,” “Beverly Hills, 90210,” and “90210.”

In 2011, she got an Honorary Best Actress award for her work in the film “Peach Plum Pear” at the Toronto Female Eye Film Festival. In 2019, she repeated her part in two episodes of the relaunched edition of “One Day at a Time,” which she first played in 2017. In 2019, she also appears in “Orange Is the New Black.”

Personal Life

In 1977, during season three of “One Day at a Time,” Phillips was arrested for disorderly behaviour. Due to her frequent drug and alcohol abuse, she began to arrive late on set and was frequently incoherent upon arriving. After being sacked from the show and suffering two near-fatal overdoses, Phillips entered Fair Oaks Hospital’s rehabilitation program. In 1982, despite her early success, she relapsed into cocaine use. She continued to struggle with drug misuse until 1992, when she entered a long-term drug rehabilitation center for nine months of intense therapy. Nonetheless, she continued to battle with substance misuse and was jailed in 2008 on cocaine and heroin possession charges. Nevertheless, her lawsuit was dropped when she completed a drug diversion program. In 2010, she featured on the third season of “Celebrity Rehab” and spoke on “The View” about her continuous recovery. In 2016, Phillips began working as a drug rehabilitation counselor at the Breathe Life Healing Center in West Hollywood.

In her 2009 autobiography, “High on Arrival,” Phillips was forthright about the impact her father had in her lifetime struggles with heroin addiction. She claims that she was 11 years old when she first used cocaine with her father, who administered the injection. She also reveals in her book that she had a sexual connection with her father that began the night before her first wedding, which she subsequently confirmed in an interview. She then describes how the connection lasted until she became pregnant by her father, at which point she obtained an abortion. Although her father’s first and second spouses have disputed the existence of such a connection, other family members have come forward to back Phillips’ assertions.

Philips has been married twice, first to rock group manager Jeffrey Sessler. They were wed between 1979 and 1981. In 1986, she married musician Michael Barakan. They had a son called Shane together before separating in 2000.
