Princess Love did not turn to the popular weight loss supplement garcinia cambogia to help her slim down. The “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star shut down the speculation after a fan reached out to her asking for help losing weight.
On Sunday, a fan tweeted at Princess asking about rumors she took garcinia cambogia to lose weight. “You look amazing. I need a little help. Plz reply back,” the fan wrote. The VH1 reality star retweeted the message telling the fan that the rumor was not true. “Those blogs create fake stories to sell their vitamins,” she posted.
According to the Daily Mail, a number of celebrities have been falsely accused of using garcinia cambogia to slim down. Khloé Kardashian was shown in a fake social media ad endorsing the supplement, as well as Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears.
In recent months, garcinia cambogia has been heavily criticized not only because of its fake ads but also due to reports that the supplement doesn’t work for weight loss. In February, TMZ reported that Dr. Oz was sued for promoting the supplement as a “magic ingredient that lets you lose weight without diet or exercise.”
In August, Princess revealed that she dropped 40 pounds by cutting out alcohol and adopting a vegan lifestyle. “I went from 163lbs to 123lbs in 7 months the healthy way, by changing my diet and working out,” she wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post. “When I was thicker I was eating junk food and drinking every day.”
Princess also lashed out at fans who criticized her slender frame. “I’m happy with my body and that’s all that matters,” Ray J’s wife said. “I understand that everyone has an opinion and that’s fine. But if I state my opinion about a lot of you, you would probably delete your IG, so from now on I’ll just keep it to myself.”
