Octavia Spencer Court  Battle

Octavia Spencer court battle against diet company Sensa is heating up. Oscar winning actress Octavia Spencer has decided to drag Sensa to court for not paying her $700,000 they owe her for being a spokesperson for the company. Octavia Spencer claimed she was fired for a series of tweets while the brand stated that she violated her contract. The two parties will face each other in a Los Angeles court the upcoming weeks.

Octavia Spencer court battle with Sensa Weight Loss System has only begun.

After winning an Oscar and becoming Hollywood’s it girl in early 2011, Octavia Spencer signed a $1.25 million contract with weight loss giant Sensa.

While Spencer claimed that the products really worked and she was able to lose 20 pounds, in July of 2013 she was fired from the company.

The Sensa diet consist of the sprinkling of a person’s meals with flavor-enhancing Sensa crystals created by neurologist Alan Hirsch in order to feel full fast and therefore shed pounds.

Octavia decided to sue Sensa for the $700,000 they owe, claiming that she did everything expected of her.

The 44-year-old shared that she tweeted as expected, she promoted the diet on TV and she filmed ads.

The business is blasting the star for adding “#spon,” to her tweets in order to let her fans know that she was paid to promote the product she was posting about.

Sensa claimed that was never part of the deal.

They also said that Spencer breached her contract by refusing to do before and after photos for the diet.

Lawyers for both parties appeared in court on July 17th where Spencer was given a small victory.

L.A. Superior Judge Michael Stern decided the diva had enough evidence against Sensa for a trial to take place.

The Divergent Series: Insurgent star is not the only person in America engaged in a court battle with the weight loss company, last week Sensa along with several other companies including L’Occitane, and LeanSpa were ordered by the Federal Trade Commission to pay $34 million to the thousands of customers they lied to and scammed with their products.
