Britney Spears jamielynnedrphil.jpg

Lynne's "spokesperson" (yep, she apparently has one of those), Lou Taylor, bashed the good doctor on the Today Show this morning, saying Dr. Phil violated the Spears' trust by speaking out in public about his role in the recent Britney drama.

Although Dr. Phil claims he was asked to intervene on Lynne Spears' behalf, Taylor says "he was not invited to make this a public display," nor were Britney's parents planning to appear on his scrapped Britney show.

Jamie Spears has previously spoken out about Dr. Phil's use of his daughter's situation as "self-promotion".

Hmmm...although Lynne probably has a right to be pissed about Dr. Phil using her daughter's troubles to promote himself, should she really be pointing fingers right now?
