Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are being sued for $5 million regarding their QuickTrim dieting supplements, according to TMZ. The pills which are supposed to allow users to “keep up with the Kardashians'” trim physiques don’t work, according to legal documents acquired by TMZ. Shocker.
Four customers claim the Kardashians made false claims when reporting via Tweets and commercials that they used the products to slim down.
They’re seeking $5 million in damages for the deceptive marketing, claiming that the diet pills’ main ingredient, caffeine, is not recognised as a safe or effective weight loss product by the FDA.
QuickTrim advertisements show the Kardashian clan in skimpy bikinis flaunting their fit bodies while promoting the pills.
However, should we be surprised by this lawsuit?
Jillian Michaels of “The Biggest Loser” has been sued four times for diet supplements she has backed.
Michaels endorsed Maximum Strength Calorie Control two years ago before receiving lawsuits claiming the miracle drug didn’t work. The diet pill touted the phrase,”Two Capsules Before Main Meals and You Lose Weight… That’s It!”
Previously, Michaels was sued three times for other supplements including a $10 million action against “Triple Process Total Body Detox & Cleanse” for a drug that supposedly contained dangerous ingredients.
The now pregnant Snooki most recently endorsed Zantrex-3 High Energy Fat Burner for helping her lose weight; however, diet experts disapprove of the product. Will she be the next to be slapped with a lawsuit?
