The Personal Life Of Dr. Phil
Mcgraw was born in Vinita, Oklahoma, on September 1, 1950, to parents Joseph J. McGraw and Anne Geraldine. He was one sibling among two older sisters; Deanna and Donna and one younger sister; Brenda. He grew up with his siblings in the oilfields of North Texas where his family was an equipment seller.
Education And Psychology
McGraw attended Shawnee Mission North High School in Overland Park and was awarded a football scholarship to the University Of Tulsa. After his coach retired, he moved to Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas from where he graduated with a B.A. in psychology.
He went on to earn an M.A in experimental psychology in 1976 and a Ph.D. degree in clinical psychology in 1979. After obtaining his doctorate, McGraw joined his father, Joe McGraw who had already established his private psychology practice.
McGraw doesn’t have a psychology license anymore. He has been involved in many controversies which put his license at risk. He is said to have “voluntarily surrendered” his psychology license in 2006 and has not practiced psychology ever since.
This has led several clinics in the US to question whether his show’s use of “psychological advice” still holds up, as practicing psychology without a license in the US is a felony.
However, he was charged for practicing psychology on Britney Spears in 2008 confidentially and having inappropriate non-physical relationships with one of his clients in the past.
Weight Loss Products
Phil entered the weight loss market in 2003 selling shakes, bars and supplements. The products read, "These products contain scientifically researched levels of ingredients that can help you change your behavior to take control of your weight." This spurred a quick reaction by many people who deemed a psychologist unfit to release products in line with a physician.
After an investigation by the FTC, McGraw dropped the supplements off-market and was forced to pay $10.5 million in a lawsuit settlement, made by the people who used his products.
Phil had his first marriage to Debbie Giggins in 1970 when he was 20 years old. Giggins claimed that she was confined to domestic duties and not allowed in family business matters which caused the divorce in the early 70s.
After that, he began to date Robin JO Jameson in 1973 and married in 2006. The couple have two children together; Jay and Jordan.
