A former guest of Dr. Phil is suing him for $100 million, claiming the show made him look mentally ill.

Matthew Barasch appeared on Dr. Phil's show last year to talk about stalking; Barasch believes a detective planted crystal meth in his home and that he's a victim at the hands of cops and others. Barasch says he told producers the only way he would participate was if they didn't make him look delusional.

Barasch now claims that the show had a second theme mental illness and paranoia and that the show was cut to make him look crazy.

According to news reports, a representative for Dr. Phil said, "We stand by our broadcast. This guest was treated with the utmost dignity and respect, and every effort was made to help him find some peace in his life. We believe the attached clip speaks for itself. We will vigorously defend this frivolous and baseless lawsuit and will pursue dismissal and our attorney fees."
