Dr. Phil McGraw's troubles apparently haven’t ended with his clash with Britney Spears's family.

On Tuesday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Edward A. Ferns ruled against dismissing a defamation suit against the TV psychologist, who is being sued by Surinamese brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe, the Associated Press reports. The two had been questioned in the case involving the May 2005 disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway on the Caribbean island of Aruba.

Dr. Phil Admits Britney Statement Was Not 'Helpful'

Originally posted 01/18/2008 07:00AM

Dr. Phil McGraw spends his days telling people how to fix their lives. This time, he admits, he's the one who got it wrong.

Earlier this month, the tough-loving talk show host sped to Britney Spears's bedside at L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after her family requested his help. After their brief visit – prompted by Spears's Jan. 4 meltdown – McGraw gave a statement to Entertainment Tonight, saying that the 26-year-old singer was in "dire need of both medical and psychological intervention."

"Was it helpful to the situation? Regrettably, no," McGraw, 57, said Thursday during a taping of the Dr. Phil Show, reports USA Today. (The show is slated to air Monday.) "I definitely think if I had it to do over again, I probably wouldn't make any statement at all. Period."

Dr. Phil McGraw is telling Britney Spears that she is not too far gone to turn her life around.

"You can make this okay," the TV therapist, who at the request of her family briefly visited Spears while she was in the hospital, says in a message to the pop star that is posted on ETonline.com. "Your family loves you. You may not always agree with what they say, with what they do but they've loved you when you weren't lovable. Turn to the people that love you and listen. You have two children and you are the one in this world to protect them. There is no sacrifice that [your mother Lynne] won't make for you, and there is no sacrifice that your father won't make. They are the people that want nothing from you, and everything for you."

Dr. Phil Cancels Britney Spears Show

Dr. Phil McGraw has canceled plans to dedicate a show to Britney Spears, calling the situation "too intense," he announced on his Web site Monday.

"As was widely reported this weekend, at the request of concerned family members, I visited Britney Spears in the hospital. The details of that visit will, of course, remain private," he said in a message online.

"We had planned to tape a Dr. Phil Now show today, focusing not on the tabloid side of Britney's latest problems, but instead on the very serious issues surrounding this case. Clearly, it is not just Britney's family struggling to find a way to protect adult children who cannot be ordered or compelled to seek help.
