Kim and Khloe Kardashian might need to pay up for selling out.
The sisters could soon be the subjects of a class action lawsuit due to their endorsement of QuickTrim, the non-FDA-approved weight loss supplement Kim and Khloe have been hawking since 2009.
Law firm Bursor & Fisher tells The New York Post it is preparing to file on behalf of a client because QuickTrim reportedly contains a high level of caffeine, an ingredient which is not an effective means for shedding unwanted pounds.
“My firm has been retained by an individual that purchased QuickTrim, and we are investigating the matter," a partner with the company tells the newspaper. "We have provided written notice of our client’s claims to the company and others involved in marketing QuickTrim."
The firm has sent an email to QuickTrim users asking if they want to join the suit and saying: “The active ingredient in QuickTrim weight loss products is a large dose of caffeine... The FDA has determined that caffeine is not safe or effective for weight loss.”
As much as we'd love to see Kim suffer for attaching her name to any product that comes calling, let's be honest:
If you actually purchased a cleanse based on Kim Kardashian saying she uses it, you deserve to stay up all night, wondering where you went wrong in life.
