Britney escapade lands Dr. Phil in hot water
Adjust font size:

TV host Dr. Phil's hospital visit with Britney Spears and his subsequent public evaluation of her mental health may have landed him in hot water.

A complaint has been filed with the California Board of Psychology claiming Dr. Phil was practicing without a license.

Dr. Phil is not licensed to practice in California, and the talk show host reportedly retired his license to practice in Texas in 2006.

This is not the first time Dr. Phil's involvement in Britney's hospitalization has been questioned. Dr. Drew Pinsky of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" and "Loveline" recently told Access Hollywood, "My concern was, I don't know that Dr. Phil has a license in California. He's not on staff at Cedars. Is he interfering with the care of another doctor's patient? I don't know."

Though practicing without a license is against the law, Dr. Phil does not need one for his talk show. Guests sign a contract saying they are aware that he is not medically treating them.
