Kim, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian Named in $5 Million QuickTrim Diet-Pill Suit

Thin is in…big trouble.

Kim  Kardashian, along with sisters Kourtney  Kardashian and Khloé Karadshian Odom, are among  those named in a new $5 million class action suit filed in Manhattan court by a  small group of dieters who claim that the reality star-endorsed QuickTrim diet  pills didn’t live up to its lofty weight-loss claims.

The suit was filed by Bursor & Fisher attorney Scott A. Bursor on behalf  of four customers who bought and used the pills and, after failing to see their  bodies transform into that of the small-screen superstars, called foul on the product, contending that the tablets’ slimming prowess must have been  overstated by the girls and the  company.

As a result, they’re now claiming that QuickTrim—the benefits of  which were frequently tweeted or otherwise promoted by the  sisters—could not possibly be the sole  cause of the trio’s shrinking (which  they  regularly attributed to the  product), as was shown in a series of   promotional shots that showed the  women “in a bikini or other  revealing  attire.”

The FDA, meanwhile, has already weighed in on the pills and found that the  main ingredient in the weight-loss supplement was an outsized dose of caffeine, which it said “is not a safe or effective treatment for weight control.”

The girls have been shilling for QuickTrim since 2009, and their association with the diet pills has resulted in $45 million in sales of the product.

The family has not yet commented on the legal action.
