Spark claims that he lost $10 million after putting his time and money into creating the gum, and further claimed the hockey legend made the fabrication to further bolster the growth of his company’s stocks.
On the other hand, Sparks hired Janet Gretzky as a spokesperson. Gretzky’s lying made Sparks buy stocks and reinvest money into the companies per nydailynews.com. Later the 61-year-old accepted that he did not lose weight even after using the product.
