Dr. Phil, who is under fire for commenting on Britney Spears‘ condition to the media, is now reportedly under investigation by the California Board of Psychology for practicing without a license. He is also unlicensed to practice psychology in his home state of Texas.
Dr. Phil says he regrets releasing a statement about his visit with Britney. “Was it helpful to the situation? Regrettably, no. It was not, and I have to acknowledge that and I do,” USA Today reports the talk show said Thursday during taping of a Dr. Phil episode that will run Monday.
“I definitely think if I had it to do over again, I probably wouldn’t make any statement at all. Period.”
Dr. Phil told USA Today that he visited Spears as “a friend and ally of the family,” not as a psychologist.
