Oprah Winfrey is caught up in yet another lawsuit. Fortunately for her, this time, sheâ€™s the one suing. Winfrey, and close friend to her show Dr. Oz have filled a colossal lawsuit against several suppliers of acai berries and resveratrol. The two claim that their likenesses were used to promote products without consent, and have joined forces to sue several web ads that used there image, names, and voices in ads for products such as cosmetics, anti-wrinkle creams, tooth-whitening kits, and diet supplements.
The suit, which was filed yesterday at a NY Federal court reveals that the two allege the company behind the ads are profiting off of their celebrity, and lure people in:
“On the false premise that [the products] have been tested or recommended by Miss Winfrey and/or Dr. Oz when they have not.”
Oprah also claims that these ads are typically credit card scams. So be cautious! As of yet the amount being asked for is still unknown, but sources leaked to TMZ that itâ€™s a BIG figure.
