“The View” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck has been accused of plagiarism in her book “The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide,” in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Massachusetts, the Associated Press says.

The suit charges that Hasselbeck copied “word for word” from a book on celiac disease written by a Cape Cod author Susan Hassett, who previously sent Hasselbeck a copy of her book and filed the lawsuit on Monday.

Hasselbeck denied the charges in a statement that and said she worked “diligently and tirelessly” on the book.
