Wayne Gretzky allegedly lied about dropping kilos by chewing gum — and a person is now suing the hockey legend over it … claiming The Nice One’s nice fib price him $10 MILLION.
The allegations are all spelled out in a brand new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports activities, filed in Los Angeles on Monday.
The plaintiff, Steven Sparks, says he created a “pure gum used to handle weight,” and referred to as it “OMG gum.” He says within the go well with he ultimately employed on Wayne’s spouse, Janet Marie Gretzky, to be a spokesperson for the product.
The issue, in keeping with Sparks, is Wayne ultimately made up a lie concerning the gum — saying after he chewed it for roughly a two-month span … it helped him lose 35 kilos.
Sparks alleged Wayne used the lie to spice up the corporate’s inventory — “which he surreptitiously bought below his household’s title.”
Sparks, claiming he had no concept Wayne was mendacity concerning the weight reduction, says he reinvested each cash and providers into the corporate. However, when Wayne ultimately admitted he had fabricated the burden loss — it brought about the corporate to tank, and hit Sparks HARD in his pockets.
Sparks says he is now out $10 MILLION — and is suing Wayne, asking for it again and extra.
