Celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels is being sued for reported false advertising, according to The Associated Press. The suit was filed by Christie Christensen of California, claiming she was duped into buying a diet supplement endorsed by Michaels, star of NBC’s reality show “The Biggest Loser.”
According to the story “Christensen's lawsuit claims she bought a product called "Jillian Michaels Maximum Strength Calorie Control" last month and that it has failed to lessen her appetite or cause her to lose weight as advertised.”
The lawsuit also states that “Ms. Michaels knows better – taking two pills before eating does not miraculously cause weight loss.”
The product's Web site, however, claims that the statements and claims of the product had not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
