Sanford Siegal, founder of the Cookie Diet, is suing Kim Kardashian for remarks she made on her Twitter account. Yes, you heard that correctly. He filed the suit against Kardashian last week stating that her comments could cause him to lose tens of millions of dollars. Keep reading to find out what happened…
It all started when Kim tweeted: “Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet is falsely promoting that I’m on this diet. NOT TRUE! I would never do this unhealthy diet! I do QuickTrim!” and “If this Dr. Siegal is lying about me being on this diet, what else are they lying about?” Kim’sÂ attorneyÂ said that by placing anÂ article stored on a third-party news Web site on www.CookieDiet.com, Siegal had created the “false impression” that Kim was a paid endorser.
Siegal is unhappy that Kim failed to mention she is a paid endorser of QuickTrim. “When I saw her derogatory comments about my diet and my character, I knew we had no choice but to take action. Disparaging someone’s product while surreptitiously hawking someone else’s in the same breath is, to use Kim’s words, ‘not cool!’”
