“Biggest Loser” trainer Jillian Michaels responded to a false advertising lawsuit filed against her by defending the diet supplement that carries her name, the Associated Press reports.
In a statement to the AP, Michaels said: "My reputation and credibility are of the utmost importance to me. This baseless lawsuit is entirely without merit and is being handled by my legal team." She also said that she stands behind all her products.
In her lawsuit, Christie Christensen claimed that "Jillian Michaels Maximum Strength Calorie Control" didn’t help her drop weight, as advertised. A second federal class-action lawsuit was filed Thursday against Michaels.
