Stardom comes at a price. The price of dealing with constant criticism and being watched through every action. Celebrity life is so not easy. Celebrity relationships and marriages are equally challenging, if not more.

People constantly keep spreading rumors and speculating lies about popular figures. Fake news of divorces is one such case. This time, the target of such false derivations are Dr. Phil and his wife Robin McGraw.

About them

Dr. Phil McGraw and his entire family, by extension, have devoted their lives to making their talk show, Dr. Phil, a success. Born on September 1, 1950, the doctor is now 72 years old. He grew up with his parents and siblings in the oilfields in North Texas.

They later moved to Kansas as their father wanted to study psychology. He attended Shawnee Mission North High School, where he also played as a linebacker for their football team.

In 2002, he formed Peteski Productions which launched the Dr. Phil show. It is an advice show with various topics covered per episode. The show has been one of the most popular TV shows in the world. Phil also sends yearly thank you notes to Oprah Winfrey for her contribution to his success.

Robin McGraw is a New York Times bestselling author. She was born on December 28, 1953, in Los Angeles, California. She is also a philanthropist, entrepreneur, and television personality.

Robin devotes her time to inspiring and empowering women to lead their best lives. She also founded the When Georgia Smiled: The Robin McGraw and Dr. Phil Foundation.

Their marriage and story

Robin was a friend of Phil’s sister. When she came to visit Phil’s sister, they met for the first time. Phil’s first marriage was on the verge of ending at the same time. For them, it was love at first sight and they’ve been inseparable since they got married in August 1976.

The couple has been married for over five decades and is still as strong as ever. They are now closer than before. Both their children have families as well and everything is perfect.

As the rumors increased in intensity, Dr. Phil chose to address them. He made it very clear that he and Robin are happy together and the news about divorce is merely a grapevine.

He also mentioned how Robin was traumatized by losing her parents at a young age. She once told him how she had no one, to which the doctor replied by promising that she has him and that he will never leave her side.


The McGraw couple is still strong and seems like the doctor is keeping up his promises of never leaving his wife. Wishing them all happiness and let us hope the rumors soon die.
