Dr. Phil Injures Ribs And Shoulder In Dirt Bike Accident; Doesn’t Stop Him From Doing His Job

That moment when Dr. Phil needs a doctor.

The television host and psychologist was badly injured in a dirt bike crash, a source told In Touch magazine. The source says the severity of the accident forced a one-week halt on production of his popular talk show.

“The nasty crash happened a few months ago,” according to the insider. “He hurt several ribs and dislocated a shoulder, and was laid up in bed, but it was all kept very quiet.

“Dr. Phil really didn’t want anyone to know about this.”

A spokesperson for Dr. Phil, 66, later confirmed the story with the publication: “In late February during some time off, Dr. Phil, practising a dirt bike trick with some of his Hollywood stuntman friends, landed awkwardly and dislocated his shoulder and dinged up a few ribs.”

“Although it was painful for a while, it did not stop him from taping all 18 shows scheduled for March,” the rep denied. “In fact, he actually taped a half-dozen extra shows and still wrapped the season before month’s end, as planned.”

“Dr. Phil said his buddies were ‘ribbing’ him: ‘Wheels first, Doc, wheels first!’ Fortunately, things are back to normal.”
