Just a few months ago, Octavia Spencer was singing the praises of Sensa, a weight-loss supplement, but now it seems things have gone left.

Spencer filed a lawsuit at L.A. Superior Court alleging “breach-of-contract and fraud,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In documents obtained by THR,  the Oscar winner signed a $1.25 million contract with the company, but it had stipulations:  Spencer refused to do tabloid ads, or to take part in “before and after” photos. She also insisted on being completely honest with her fans by tagging all sponsored tweets with the required #spon hashtag. Sensa was allegedly not happy with the hashtag part.

In the lawsuit filed, Spencer claims the company is blaming her “for the failed advertising campaign” and they are now trying to back out of paying her $700,000 they owe her.

Since coming on board,  Sensa has used Spencer’s face to promote their product through various avenues.

Spencer lost 20 pounds, in just five months, as a result of using  Sensa.
