Kim Kardashian is in a mountain of trouble after she and her sisters apparently lied when they claimed that they were able to attain their million-dollar physiques from a diet pill named QucikTrim, this according to a five million dollar lawsuit.

The plaintiffs are seething at Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe for claiming that they lost weight by consistently taking QuickTrim, whose main ingredient is caffeine.

“The FDA determined [caffeine] is not safe or effective treatment for weight control.”

According to TMZ, the suit, filed in NY by Bursor & Fisher, the Kardashians fed lies to the public through commercials, magazines, and social media since 2009.

Kim went on Twitter and said, “Our QuickTrim cleanse will be massive! Khloe has already lost so much weight.”

But on YouTube, several QuickTrim costumers claimed that they had seemingly scary side effects, from uncontrolled diarrhea to heart palpitations. Check out these women’s testimonials and judge for yourself:

The plaintiffs claim they would NEVER have purchased the QuickTrim products if they would have known the truth … and claim the Kardashian testimonials were completely unsubstantiated.

Now, the Kardashians, QuickTrim, and various companies that sold the products are being sued for more than $5 million in damages.

Many celebrities endorse products that they claim they use exclusively, leaving consumers questioning whether or not they can trust the celeb endorser. But this is why most companies use the fine-print disclaimers at the bottom of commercials to keep them out courtrooms, battling a lawsuit like this one.

Who really believes Jennifer Hudson or Charles Barkley lost all their weight through Weight Watchers, or Janet Jackson ever used Nurti-System exclusively to get her world-class body back in shape?

Either way, people have to use their own discretion whenever purchasing any product, but at the same time, no product should ever harm the consumer.

No word has been released from the Kardashian Camp.

  1. I used weight watchers to lose 30lbs in 2010/2011 so I know for fact it works or worked in the past. The problem here is people buying “miracle” hoping to do nothing but sit on their behinds eat pizza and well…hope for a miracle. With any weight loss supplement, program or regimen you have to realize that these are only AIDES. you still have to do the work. You still need to restructure your diet and start being active to see results. I hope this lawsuit is thrown out.

  2. 1) “consumer” or “customer. Not “costumers”

    2) Here’s the thing: celebrity endorsements are great, but I’ll be damned if I ever buy something that affects the way my body works without doing the research first. A Google search can reveal a lot about these products. And you can’t tell me that these folks aren’t computer savvy, b/c they can at least upload a video to YouTube, so…

  3. Damn, that sucks. I love Kim K and LOVE Khloe. Diet pills in general don’t work. I consumed them for at least five months my sophomore year in college, trying my hardest to get my freshman 25 off, and I had to go to the doctor for heart palpitations and lost only a little weight. So I understand the second girls pain.

  4. If people would stop going for the “quick fix” and actually turn to diet and EXERCISE as a means of lowering their weight, they wouldn’t have these problems… *smh*

  5. Nothing beats diet and exercise. Stop using shortcuts
