Dr. Phil McGraw Dr. Phil McGraw

Phil McGraw's production company, Peteski Productions, has sued Gawker Media for publishing footage from Dr. Phil's interview with  the man behind the Manti Te'o hoax, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In the suit filed Monday in Texarkana, Texas, lawyers Chip Babcock and George McWilliams claim that Deadspin, a subsidiary of Gawker, posted the most anticipated segments of the two-part interview with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man who pretended to be Te'o's girlfriend, before the second episode had aired in the majority of the syndicated show's markets.
