Jennifer Love Hewitt

'Shark Tank' Co. Fights Back

You Were Sooo Into Us!

6/8/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0606-jennifer-love-hewitt-main-WireImage-01Jennifer Love Hewitt may claim she was duped into holding a diet product in photos, but the company she's suing says that's B.S. -- and Jennifer willingly posed for a ton of pics. 

As TMZ first reported, JLH sued over a product called Slim Spray, which she claims used her picture on its website without permission ... falsely implying she endorses the product.

 A rep for MarzSprays, the maker of Slim Spray, tells TMZ the Ghost Whisperer was very curious about their stuff when she hit up a Hollywood gifting suite in 2012. The rep claims J.Love asked several questions about items in the suite and "posed for the camera over a dozen times with our products."

The company claims it legally purchased the images of her in the suite -- like the one above -- and insists it's on legal solid ground to use her face in ads.

As for Hewitt's claim the product bombed on "Shark Tank" -- they point out one of the sharks, Lori Greiner, DID invest ... and they were even invited back for a recent follow-up episode.

Which means Slim Spray was on TV more recently than "The Client List."

In light of this Barbara Walters will be a little panicked about the photos of her admiring that line of vibrators she likes.
The vibrator company will say,"She was soooo into us.And we were soooo into her............if you know what I mean"

If you ever feel worthless, ugly, irrelevant.. Remember that she still exists. If you think she's good at anything, seek psychiatric treatment immediately

So this woman thinks she can break people by making fun of them! Dear hewitt..If only you knew how Lame you are..lamer than this slim spray. Get up your fat ass and work in your local fruit market instead of just suing other companies.

Wait, if i take a picture of someone holding a product in the store i can then use the picture in ads that say that person uses this product? Do i have to pay compensation for using person in my ads?

This company has to be run by the biggest moron ever. Holding a product or asking a question about it doesn't equal a signed, contracted endorsement to be used in advertising. She could have just been polite by asking a few questions even. You can't use someone's image to profit unless they agree.

She looks like she's reading the box, not endorsing a product.

I doubt she signed a contract, if she is suing & if that is the case. She will win & the company will be going out of business soon. They are idiots if they actually paid her & didn't have her sign a detailed contract.
