Jillian Michaels Welcomes Two Kids In One Week
Former trainer for “The Biggest Loser”, Jillian Michaels, welcomed two children into her family earlier this month with partner Heidi Rhoades.
In the same week Michaels brought home newly adopted 2-year-old girl, Lukensia, from Haiti, Rhoades gave birth to son Phoenix on May 3 in Los Angeles.
“We’re swimming in babies over here,” Michaels, 38, told People.
She also posted the news on her Facebook page.
“I am really happy to finally share with you that I have brought my daughter home AND I have a newborn son,” she wrote. “Thanks for sharing this long journey with me. I am so grateful.”
Michaels, who left the hit NBC show last year in order to pursue motherhood, couldn’t be happier with her two new additions.
“I don’t even answer email. I don’t have time to care about anything else,” she said. “I want to be really present and enjoy all the nuances of their growth and development. I don’t want to rush any of it.”
Jillian Michaels sued over potentially fatal diet pills
Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels is being sued for endorsing a diet supplement which allegedly has the potential to kill.
Michaels is also involved in three other similar lawsuits over pills she has endorsed. The lawsuit marks the fourth time Michaels, who also fronts the NBC summer reality smash Losing It with Jillian, has been taken to court over her diet pills, TMZ.com reported Wednesday.
The latest legal claim was filed by a woman who only wants to be known by her initials R.D., because she claims to have a “very real fear of retaliation or harassment by [the] defendants.” In the lawsuit, R.D. claims that Michaels’ Triple Process Total Body Detox & Cleanse diet supplement “might kill you” because it contains a “potentially lethal combination of toxic ingredients.”
The Plaintiff is seeking more than $10 million in damages, claiming that Michaels and Thin Care International, which produces the product, have “actively and fraudulently” conspired to hide the supplement’s alleged dangers.
The other two lawsuits against Michaels involve the trainer’s “calorie control” product. One lawsuit, filed in February, alleges Michaels “sold her proverbial soul to the devil” by putting her name to the Jillian Michael Maximum Strength Fat Burner.
Earlier this year, Jillian fired back at the false advertising claims, insisting that she stands behind her products.
