Bosses of a slimming company embroiled in a legal dispute with Jennifer Love Hewitt have hit back at the actress, insisting they broke no laws by using pictures of her with their products.

'The Client List' star's legal representatives filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles on Wednesday, claiming executives at The Marz Group LLC violated the actress' public image by using a picture of her to endorse their product Slim Spray. However, bosses at the company have now hit back, with a representative for The Marz Group telling editors at TMZ.com the star was intrigued by their merchandise when she attended a Hollywood gifting suite in 2012, where she asked questions and "posed for the camera over a dozen times with our products."

They insist they legally purchased the images of Hewitt in the suite and are certain they are within their legal rights to use the photos in their adverts. Hewitt is seeking damages, legal fees, and an injunction banning further use of her image.
