Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian have fired back on the claim that they tricked consumers into buying weight-loss management program that doesn't really work.
The Kardashian sisters have responded to the Quick Trim lawsuit. A class-action lawsuit was filed earlier this year, claiming that Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian made "unsubstantiated, false and misleading claims" in ads, interviews and tweets about the efficacy of the diet pills.
Consumers believed the reality stars sold bogus pills to millions of gullible consumers especially after the FDA found out that the main ingredient in Quick Trim was caffeine. They said the sisters tricked them into buying the product which is not effective for weight-reducing.
The Kardashians have counteracted the $5 million lawsuit, saying in legal documents that they are just the faces for Quick Trim and should not be held responsible for the brand's lies. They pointed out the absence of a law that puts a spokesperson in blame for false advertising. Therefore, the sisters want their name cleared out from the lawsuit.
Kim and her sisters apparently were still endorsing Quick Trim last month. Kim made a trip to London to promote the weight management system at at Westfield mall and St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel.
