In the podcast episode, Jill shared, “But once we started having some differences, it got a little rocky there to the point where Derick had to have some really hard conversations with my dad and more recently [Derick] had to stand up for me … and said, ‘If you keep contacting her directly, I will have to file a protective order.’”
