Kim Kardashian is at the center of a messy Twitter lawsuit involving Dr Siegal’s Cookie Diet, and RadarOnline.com has the new lawsuit just filed against the reality TV vixen.
It all started when Kardashian recently fired off a cease and desist letter to the cookie maker accusing them of falsely claiming that she was endorsing their brand.
The celebrity doctor behind the weight loss program countered by filing his own lawsuit in Miami Dade County, Florida, Tuesday morning seeking unspecified damages against Kardashian claiming that she made false claims on her Twitter page calling the Cookie Diet ‘unhealthy’.
In his suit, Dr Siegal claims that the Kardashian had ‘commercial motive’ for the attack because she is a spokesperson for a rival weight loss program QuickTrim.
The CEO of Dr Siegal’s Cookie Diet, Matthew Siegal, exclusively told RadarOnline.com: “We received a letter a week ago asking us to remove a link to a news story (that we did not write) on our website that implied she was using and endorsing our product.
“And although we did this we discovered that more than a month before she had made her comments on Twitter claiming our product was ‘unhealthy’ while somebody also leaked a letter from her lawyers to our company to a celebrity website.
“We felt betrayed by the leaking of this letter and my father Dr Siegal, who invented the product 35 years ago, was personally offended by her claims.
“Over half a million people have used our product which has been endorsed by several doctors without any problems ever been recorded.
“My message to Kim Kardashian is that we have no animosity against her personally but that she should act more responsibly and not say false statements about our brand while endorsing another one at the same time.”
