Former Canadian ice hockey player, Wayne Gretzky allegedly lied about dropping pounds by chewing gum.Now a man is suing the hockey legend over it; claiming The Great One’s lie cost him $10 million.
According to TMZ Sports, the plaintiff, Steven Sparks, says he created a “natural gum used to manage weight,” and called it “OMG gum.”
He said in the suit he eventually hired Wayne’s wife, Janet Marie Gretzky, to be a spokesperson for the product.
The problem, according to Sparks, is Wayne eventually made up a lie about the gum — saying after he chewed it for roughly a two-month span … it helped him lose 35 pounds.
Sparks alleged Wayne used the lie to boost the company’s stock — “which he surreptitiously purchased under his family’s name.”
