“There were things she was doing and it didn’t start with Kelly, it started before Kelly,” Rick, 62, alleged in the interview.

Dodd, 46, stood up for her husband, claiming that his friends also “saw the way” [Veronica] have treated him” in the past.

“I don’t want to air a bunch of family laundry,” Rick insisted. “But as you know, it didn’t start with Kelly.”

Rick shared that after he began dating Dodd in 2019, the two were “on the same page” about how Veronica tried to manipulate the situation.

“You wouldn’t dare question him or argue with him…

“It was like, ‘No, you can’t act like that,'” he explained. “So, again, there were a lot of things, and I only offer an apology. That’s all I ask for.”

Full interview Monday at 7:30 p.m. ET on “Up and Adam!” Youtube channel.

Rick had previously alleged that his relationship with Dodd deteriorated prior to his relationship with his daughter, whom he married in October 2020.

“My issues with my eldest daughter are years old. It’s not about Kelly,” she wrote in an Instagram Comment amid the drama of Veronica’s wedding.

He added, “If my daughter is ready to apologize and talk to me, we will work on repairing our relationship.” “Meanwhile, she can live out the rest of her life knowing that she has kicked me (and my wife) out of her marriage. It’s on my daughter, not Kelly.”

In a separate statement to Page Six, Rick said he is “certain” that most people can “identify problems” within their family.

“I have had issues with my eldest daughter for many years. It is unfortunate that this has come. I am not going to give details of what happened, but I will say that the lines of communication were always open,” the statement read.

“She chose not to call and we believe didn’t invite me and Kelly to her wedding to hurt us. She’s a big woman and she has to live with her decision. We wish her the best.”
