EXCLUSIVE: The Biggest Loser star Jillian Michaels – Former Lawyers Blast Reality Star in $40 Million Legal Battle
The Dirty can exclusively reveal The Biggest Loser star Jillian Michaels is being blasted by her former lawyers – in her $40 million lawsuit accusing them of only caring about lining their pockets with millions — with the law firm believing she caused her own damages and deny they owe her a dime.
Michaels sued the L.A. law firm Greenberg Traurig for legal malpractice and breach of contract. She accused them of negligent legal representation related to contracts for her various deals over the years.
The trainer explains she hired the firm in 2008 … as her celebrity and name were rising … for help to negotiate the incoming contracts. However, she says the lawyers were lazy, took short cuts, and committed ethical violations and even concealed fraud. She believes they only cared about making millions for themselves without any concern for her finances. Michaels sued the law firm for $40 million in damages.
Recently, Greenberg Traurig fired back in response to the suit accusing them of screwing over their client denying they did anything wrong when they worked for Michaels.
They demand the entire case be thrown out saying they provided Michaels with proper legal advice and blame her for any damage caused to her finances. The firm believes the reality star has not even been harmed and the lawsuit is a bunch of nonsense.
