Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt is suing a weight loss company over allegations her image was used to promote a product without permission.

The Client List star's legal team filed suit at the Superior Court of Los Angeles on Wednesday (04Jun14) claiming bosses at The Marz Group Llc have violated her public image by using a snap of her to endorse Slim Spray since March (14).

The lawsuit reads, "A large portion of the Defendant's marketing campaign hinges on the exploitation of celebrities."

Hewitt is seeking damages, an injunction banning the use of her image, and legal fees.
