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.

Reta    

Dr Phil hasn't been in private practice since he's had his show, so that alone makes her the liar. He makes way more money doing th show that he would with individual patients, let alone crazy bitches like this one.

Good Freaking Lord!! Surely, Dr. "Feel" has bigger problems than this crazy chick. Like getting rid of the lingering, wafting skunk odor out of his rubber watch band and his house.

Hummmm! I tend to believe this could be so as Dr. Phil does seem sex starved at times and it does say at his prodction office so he could have been treating one of the people who were on his show and it says staff stopped her from escaping. The staff may have been told she's abit kooky and to keep her there and not know at all what is going on behind closed doors. It will be her word against his. She will lose her case but I tend to believe her.
Now, today on Dr. Phil, they made this big to do about an announcement and saying everyone has been asking. I thought it was to say him and Robin were separating but it was that they are going to be grandparents. Now, how many people keep asking that? Also, almost as an after thought, they bring up the Mom to be. Zzzzzzzzzzzz!! She is the one having the child. Their egos are getting the better of them. Even the son was embarrassed.

why would Dr. Phil risk his career and marriage to touch a left boob? It sounds made up to me. I think she might be related to Jon Gosselin! LOL
