Hollywood, California - Just moments after a representative for the Spears family, appeared on the "Today" show, accusing Dr. Phil of betraying Britney and the Spears' family trust, lawyers for the Spears filed for a temporary restraining order (TRO) in the Los Angeles Superior Court against him.
Filings ask the court to order Dr. Phil to say at least 100 yards away form anyone of the Spears family members, including the unborn child Jamie Lynn Spears is carrying to term.
According to court pleadings, the Spears family alleges that Dr. Phil has been stalking them for months now under the guise of treating their dysfunctional family for various substance additions and disorders.
"At first we welcomed Dr. Phil into our homes, hearts and minds," read the Spears' court documents. "We trusted him implicitly with all our secret drug addictions, alcoholism, underage pre-martial sex with male adults, acute stage mom syndrome, mass hysteria and delusions of grandeur, but he betrayed us."
Dr. Phil was just using the Spears family to forward his own career as psychiatrist to the stars and bring up the ratings on his show, according to the documents.
"We first began to suspect Dr. Phil of stalking us when he kept on insisting on asking us for our autographs after each and every session," stated the court papers. "He said it was his fee for his services rendered, but we knew what it was really for. He was collecting our signatures on the checks we wrote to him to sell on ebay."
Canceled checks written to Dr. Phil from the Spears family were submitted to the court as evidence for the TRO.
Even more startling is the Spears' allegation that Dr. Phil is a serial celebrity stalker. The Spears' reason that Dr. Phil was really using his professional medical training to help celebrities not just stalk them, they would have been cured by now.
"He is using his professional medical training just to get close to Hollywood movie stars, which he really has no intention of helping or curing," the Spears' accuse. "Why just take a look at us, we have been under his care for several months now, and we're worst off than before. Britney still lost custody of the kids, had a breakdown and Lynn has a bun in the oven from a guy who should be in prison for statuary rape."
