Netflix’s Girl In The Picture: Meet Cliff Sevakis, Suzanne Sevakis Father
Netflix’s Girl In The Picture is nothing but a tragic life story of Suzanne Sevakis, the girl who was kidnapped by her step-father who eventually became her husband. However, the isn’t as simple as it sounds. The twists and turns make it quite difficult to understand. You can assume what it was like when we say that Suzanne’s true identity took 40 years to reveal.
Her story is the story of failed parenting and abuse of innocence. One prominent figure in her life is her biological father Cliff Sevakis. Cliff had Suzanne with his wife Sandra “Sandi” Chipman (now Willett). They were reportedly briefly married to each other. Claims have been made that Cliff discovered that he had a daughter only after 2010.
However, other accounts show that he knew he had a daughter and chose to give full custody to his then-wife Sandra after Sandra married her likely second husband Dennis Brandenburg. It was also reported Sandra made him sign the document that allowed him to forfeit his parental rights.
Either way, Cliff is blamed for never making an effort to go out looking for her daughter, which could have protected her life, and Suzanne’s life would’ve been something different.
He recently appeared on Netflix’s show and shared, “What I can do is – I can’t talk to Suzanne, but I can talk to Megan And that will… that will do”.
