I just stopped breast feeding three months ago, so I didn't have any idea that any of this was going on until he called me and said, 'Hey, I've been arrested and I'm having this problem, but it's not true.'"

"To be honest, he had been to prison, but he was a changed person," said Phaedra. "The person I married I thought was changed."
