    Dr. Phil sued by former employee for false imprisonment, wrongful termination
    BY Peter Sblendorio
    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
    Thursday, January 21, 2016, 9:27 AM
    Popular TV psychologist Dr. Phil McGraw locked roughly 300 staff members in a room and angrily grilled them about information that had been leaked to the media, a bombshell lawsuit alleges.
    Former employee Leah Rothman — a segment director on the "Dr. Phil" show for 12 years — says she was called into work on an off day last March, forced to turn off her phone, herded into a room guarded by McGraw's security team with her co-workers and berated by the 65-year-old TV host.
    "If you f--- with me, I'll f--- with you," McGraw told the staff, according to the lawsuit.
    To make matters worse, Rothman claims McGraw already knew which employee had leaked the information — and that the harrowing meeting was nothing more than a twisted scare tactic.

    Dr. Phil McGraw is reportedly being sued by a former employee for false imprisonment and wrongful termination.
    McGraw allegedly even read from cue cards during the heated meeting — leading Rothman to believe he had planned the confrontation for a while.
    Rothman, who sought help from human relations to no avail, then allegedly quit her job last April, claiming the emotional stress caused by McGraw's frightening confrontation became too much to bear.
    She is now suing the TV icon for false imprisonment and emotional distress — as well as wrongful constructive termination and whistle blower retaliation.

    Dr. Phil McGraw allegedly locked more than 300 employees in a room and grilled them about information leaked to the media.
    The nature of the allegedly leaked information is currently unknown — but Dr. Phil did reportedly fire an employee last year for sharing his exclusive interview with Bobbi Kristina Brown's former boyfriend Nick Gordon with a British newspaper before it aired on his show.
    A rep for Dr. Phil did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Most would agree he's scum, but he really surprised me by doing a fantastic job during those 2 shows he did about Making a Murderer. Even got the former sheriff to admit something he had never said publicly before.

    Just because he was backed by Oprah he thought he had a free pass to do whatever. I always thought he AND his wife AND grown kids are fake and conniving.
    Fake, fake, fake, fake, fake! That includes his fake ass teeth, her fake face, and their fake ass books.

    He like Dr. Drew is a stupid dick. They are so stupid and give the worst advice that I can't believe they have any viewers. guest....."Dr. Phil my husband burns me with hot coals, hits me and has cheated on me numerous times." Dr. Phil......"He's made some bad choices in this relationship but he's not a bad guy. Do you guys want to get serious about working this out or what?" What a fucking asshole!!!!

    I agree with this 90%. I would not fuck Oprah with your dick, she is such a whack job.

    I was talking with a cattle rancher a couple of years ago. I told him I didn't eat beef because Oprah said it was bad for you. Then we both started laughing.

    Oprah is the ugly, fat, black Jenny McCarthy.
