We consider a singular phase field system located in a smooth bounded domain. In the entropy balance equation appears a logarithmic nonlinearity. The second equation of the system, deduced from a balance law for the microscopic forces that are responsible for the phase transition process, is perturbed by an additional term involving a possibly nonlocal maximal monotone operator and arising from a class of sliding mode control problems. We prove existence and uniqueness of the solution for this resulting highly nonlinear system. Moreover, under further assumptions, the longtime behavior of the solution is investigated.
