Kardashians named in $6.2 million QuickTrim lawsuit

LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Reality TV star Kim Kardashian and two of her sisters have been slapped with a US$5 million (S$6.2 million) lawsuit alleging they and the makers of QuickTrim diet pills falsely touted the product's effectiveness for losing weight.

The proposed class action lawsuit takes aim at the sisters' endorsement deal with the weight loss company. It was filed on Thursday in federal court in New York on behalf of four plaintiffs who used the product.
The plaintiffs, who live in New York, California and Florida, stated in their lawsuit that the claims made by QuickTrim and by the Kardashians marketing it were 'false, misleading, and unsubstantiated'.
They added there was 'no competent and reliable scientific evidence supporting any of these claims'.
