Lionsgate Ordered To Pay Jillian Michaels $5.8 Million For YouTube Fitness Videos

15 May 2017 2:56 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Jillian Michaels, the fitness entrepreneur and former star of The Biggest Loser, was awarded roughly $5.8 million in a dispute filed against entertainment studio Lionsgate -- which Michaels alleged had violated a contract by streaming her exercise videos for free on YouTube, subsequently stemming sales and damaging her brand.

Additionally, Lionsgate was ordered by an arbitrator to pay attorneys’ fees and arbitration costs, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Michaels filed her claim in April 2015 after signing a deal with Lionsgate back in 2007 to distribute fitness programming via physical DVDs and VOD channels. As part of the deal, she had the right to consult on distribution prior to any releases.

I’m not trying to take anything away from Mama June’s weight loss.  Congratulations to her and more power to she and her family as she tries to improve her health.   But I just don’t understand how there’s an entire show about this.  We already have Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian.   We already have The Biggest Loser.   We even have shows like My 600lb Life to highlight the dangers of obesity.   Why oh why are we fixated on this one particular person, Mama June?  Seriously, I don’t get it. It’s like when Subway just decided that Jared would be their guy.
