- Videos that appear to show singer Kelly Clarkson promoting diet products are altered. Her publicist has said she’s not a spokesperson for any such products.
Singer Kelly Clarkson keeps showing up in videos in which she appears to promote weight loss products. But these videos are fake, and you shouldn’t fall for them.
One recent example is an Oct. 28 Facebook post in which Clarkson appears to say: "Yeah, it’s been crazy, I never would’ve imagined anything like this happening to me. My weight has always been something I’ve struggled with up until this point. I was at an all-time low and God blessed me with these miracle gummies. My good friend Lainey Wilson recommended them to me, and let me tell you, these things really are a miracle. In just three months, I lost 37 pounds and feel better than ever. I’m so excited to be partnering with this company because they have already improved my life so much. I can’t wait to improve yours, too."
