TV shrink Dr. Phil has launched a $250 million lawsuit against the company behind the National Enquirer, claiming it has published more than 80 false stories about him and his wife over a 13-year period
‘Enough is enough, it’s time for them to own up.’ Dr. Phil told Daily Mail Online in an exclusive interview.
‘As a member of the media, I have a deep respect for the First Amendment. But it does not protect these people who knowingly print lies for money, particularly lies about my wife.’
And Dr. Phil’s lawyer, L. Lin Wood, admitted he wants to see the ‘scoundrels’ who run American Media (AMI) — which publishes Radar Online and Star Magazine as will as the Enquirer — shut down so they can no longer spread ‘lies’ about celebrities.
‘If you ask me professionally, I would like nothing more than to see this company put out of business,’ Wood told Daily Mail Online on Sunday. ‘They serve no legitimate purpose in society.
