Wayne Gretzky is the greatest hockey player of all-time and one of the most recognizable faces in sports. Unfortunately Gretzky is currently the target of a lawsuit valued in the millions. The lawsuit claims that Gretzky manufactured interest in the company stock through a lie, then he used his family to purchase stocks.

The claim is then Gretzky used his notoriety to manipulate the value before selling his shares.
Wayne Gretzky is being sued for multi-millions in Los Angeles after lying about a gum product that loses you weight.

The plaintiff, Steven Sparks, says he created a "natural gum used to manage weight," and called it "OMG gum." He says in the suit he eventually hired on Wayne's wife, Janet Marie Gretzky, to be a spokesperson for the product.

The problem, according to Sparks, is Wayne eventually made up a lie about the gum -- saying after he chewed it for roughly a two-month span ... it helped him lose 35 pounds. Sparks alleged Wayne used the lie to boost the company's stock -- "which he surreptitiously purchased under his family's name."

Sparks, claiming he had no idea Wayne was lying about the weight loss, says he reinvested both money and services into the company. But, when Wayne eventually admitted he had fabricated the weight loss -- it caused the company to tank, and hit Sparks HARD in his wallet.


Once Gretzky admitted the gum did in fact not help you lose wait, values dropped and cost Sparks a large amount of money.
