At a taping of his show on Thursday (January 17), which will air on Monday, Dr. Phil McGraw admitted his visit to Britney Spears’ hospital room didn’t help matters.
“Was it [my statement] helpful to the situation? Regrettably, no. It was not, and I have to acknowledge that and I do,” he told his studio audience.
“I definitely think if I had it to do over again, I probably wouldn’t make any statement at all. Period.”
McGraw told USA Today earlier this week that he visited the singer as “a friend and ally of the family”, not as a psychologist. He stopped practicing medicine years ago, and is not licensed in California.
McGraw appears to have stopped short of saying the “s” word.
New episodes of his series resume on TEN 12:00pm Monday.
