Wayne Gretzky said the product helped people lose weight
Wayne Gretzky and his wife Janet Jones Gretzky launched a weight loss product that does not work at all and Steven Sparks is taking them to court for 10 million dollars.
The product is called OMG a chewing gum that according to Gretzky, it helped to lose weight, however, now Sparks claims that he lied and it cost him $10 million.
Steven Sparks, says Gretzky created a “natural gum used to manage weight,” and Wayne convinced Sparks to invest in the gum that according to him made him lose 35 pounds just by chewing gum.
On the website to promote the brand he said “After three years in development working closely with a team of scientists and companies engaged in nutrition and weight control, I am extremely excited to unveil OMG powered by SuperCitrimax. OMG is an outstanding product specifically designed to fit into the lifestyles of today’s fast-paced, multi-tasking adults. Overeating is often at the core of weight gain – and a real epidemic. Diets can be disruptive to lifestyle, so OMG created a convenient and easy approach to weight management, a Functional Gum that most anyone can enjoy while effectively learning to control their food intake. Our great-tasting gum helps eliminate the feeling of being hungry. Plus – I have always disliked taking pills!”
Afterward, the NHL legend admitted it was a lie and that created the company which Sparks owned to go under, and according to Sparks that is why he’s asking for the 10 mil.
Sparks claims that Wayne lied about the results to make the stock healthier and for it to be attractive for investors. Sparks “surreptitiously purchased under his family’s name.”
After Wayne lied about the claim that it helped people lose weight, Sparks got a big economic hit and damaged his portfolio.
