Lawsuit

Dr. Phil Trapped Me, Touched My Boob

10/7/2009 9:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr PhilDr. Phil is being sued by a woman who claims the TV shrink held her captive inside his production offices, forced her to stare at a naked man -- and then grabbed her left breast.

According to the suit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, a woman named Shirley Dieu claims she went to Phil to seek therapy in 2007 -- but instead she claims the doc tried to "brainwash" her and force her to endure all sorts of physical and emotional abuse.

In the docs, Shirley claims Phil forced her to "be in the same room with a completely naked live man while he exposed his entire naked body, genitals and all."

Shirley alleges she tried to escape the building, but "was blocked by the staff to prevent her from leaving."

In the docs, Shirley also claims Phil "touched her left breast during her therapy session."

Shirley also claims Phil lied to her about being a "real" doctor -- alleging that the TV shrink "is not licensed to practice in the state of California."

Shirley doesn't specify how much money she wants from Phil -- but we're assuming it's an insane figure.

I happened to catch one of Phil's shows recently . This one a woman was arrested for ' dragging' her very small child on the floor of a store. She turned a corner and the child about rammed into a store display. At first the audience was aghast, but by the end of the show most everyone was on Phil's side that there was nothing wrong with dragging this child around on the floor. However , I was shocked and not amused. MY only shock is Phil's pull he has with all these women to have them completely change their mind. NOT me . What an ego this guy must have.

Give me a break! I would believe that maybe he had an affair w/ her, but to do something as stupid as that? He's alot smarter than to do something like that!
She sounds like a whacko!

This is hilarious, but also sad...this chick needs serious mental help. There was more info on another site, which added:

Dieu further alleges she was deprived of sleep and food, "brainwashed" and "subjected to edited tapings depicting her as a different personality other than her own."

The other article also said Dieu is acting as her own lawyer and has sued several others in the past.

According to 'People' she is acting as her own lawyer and has a history of filing frivilous law suits. She reminds me of that crazy chick who says she is the biological mother of MJ's kids.

Please. "Dr." Phil doesn't exactly have a shingle outside his home office. This woman went to him knowing that before it was over she'd either bed him for money or sue him for money. Everybody knows this man is no doctor. And, even if she did...no one can force a grown A$$ woman to "stare at a naked man", unless it's part of a sexual assault, in which case she should be at the sheriff, not the civil court house.

That is a joke. Pure and Simple. I do not like Dr Phil anymore but I do not think he would risk big money to do this. I for one, am totally put off by him constantly promoting his sons/wife show or books or whatever they are selling and now with his pregnant playboy playmate daughter in law, just sickening especially giving the fact that dr phil was a big critic of porn!! They actually act as if they are royalty and then they complain about the media, well the media problems could be eliminated by cancelling the show but that won't happen, if you don't like it get out>>>> or deal with it.

So, what else is new? Isn't that what fame and fortune are all about? Screwing and taking as much money as you can from the working person. Maybe Letterman and Phil ought to get together and share their thoughts. As for the woman, it is about time women acted like women instead of pawns for the wealthy. Waht ever happened to self respect and honor? As for the media, - UGH!
