Jillian Michaels

Sued by Another Big,

Big Fan

Jillian Michaels Sued by Another Big, Big FanIf you're keeping score at home, this is the third time Jillian Michaels has been sued over her line of fat burning pills -- but this time, there are allegations they contain a "potentially lethal" blend of ingredients.

In the class action lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Kathy Hensley claims "The Biggest Loser" trainer "sold her proverbial soul to the devil" by teaming up with the companies that created her fat burner.

Hensley claims Jillian and those companies -- Thin Care and Basic Research -- failed to disclose that the main ingredients of the "Jillian Michael Maximum Strength Fat Burner" allegedly combine to make a "toxic cocktail."

In the lawsuit, Hensley claims one of the pill's ingredients -- citrus aurantium -- is "potentially lethal" and known to cause high blood pressure and serious cardiac problems in certain individuals.

Hensley filed the class action lawsuit against Jillian, Thin Care, Basic Research and Walgreens -- and is suing for less than $5,000,000.

Two lawsuits ago, Jillian's people told us the product was vetted by experts and she's confident she'll prevail in court.

First, if you're going to put foreign substances and diet pills in your body, you should do the research. Second, if you want to lose weight then take your butt to the gym and run and stop attempting to lose the fast way. These people make me sick. Always want to sue someone because they have no self control. Ridiculous.

All these lawsuits !! Ridiculous !! Canola oil is the main ingredient in weed killer and restaurants and homes cook with it. We can't just sue everyone just because they have a reaction to what they eat or take. I've tried the product and have had no reactions to the ingredients.
