DR. Phil has settled a legal battle with two women who alleged they were traumatised when the TV self-help guru surprised them with a naked man during a show in 2007.
The unidentified women claimed they felt violated after producers sent a nude intruder into a property where they were filming The Dr. Phil House to shoot their stunned reactions.
They filed suit against U.S. TV personality - real name Phil MCGraw - and CBS executives in 2009.
A judge has now dismissed the case after both sides agreed to a settlement, reports Tmz.com.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
