Dr. Phil may need some counseling of his own.
TMZ.com is reporting that a woman has filed a lawsuit against the therapy guru, stating that when she went to Phil for help in 2007, he tried to "brainwash" her. Shirley Dieu is also claiming that the shrink emotionally and physically abused her.
In the documents filed Wednesday in a L.A. Superior court, the woman 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 says she tried to escape the building, but "was blocked by the staff to prevent her from leaving." She also claims that Phil "touched her left breast during her therapy session."
This woman is also swearing that Phil isn't a "real" doctor – alleging that the Oprah protégé "is not licensed to practice in the state of California."
The filings do not specify how much cash this woman is looking for to ease her pain, but we can only imagine that it's going to be a hefty sum.
Do you believe her – or is this just another ploy to get money out of a celeb? Chime in below!
