A convicted felon is suing Maury Povich after claiming to be traumatized from seeing his daughter and ex-wife interviewed on The Maury Povich Show.

According to news reports, Alan B. Griffin was watching TV from a Florida prison -- he's serving time for sexual battery and 2nd degree attempted murder -- when he saw his 7-year-old daughter Lanique and ex-wife Sherilitra on the show, talking about him.  Griffin says seeing his "only child being exploited" by Povich led to suicidal thoughts which landed him in a 72-hour mental health hold and a year of psychiatric counseling.

Griffin is suing Povich, his production company, and NBC for $100,000. Griffin is representing himself.
