During her own childhood, Chynna says her father never made sexual advances toward her. She lived with her mother and only saw her father about every two years, she says. "I'm not going to say it was all glorious and perfect and birds flying around. No, there were some serious drugs that I saw going on," she says. "But the memories that I do hold onto of my father are the ones of us taking walks on the beach, writing songs together, laughing."
