Dr. Phil has filed a suit against Gawker Media for posting footage of the TV therapist’s interview with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man behind the Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax on its sports gossip blog, Deadspin.com.

The Hollywood Reporter reports the suit was filed Monday in Texas and claims the website posted the juiciest parts of the interview online before it had aired in the majority of “Dr. Phil” markets.
