And he was supposed to be promoting it! Yikes!
Jean-Claude Van Damme is being sued by the makers of the "Total Flex", a piece of home gym equipment which the actor was paid to endorse, after bashing it on his reality show, Behind Closed Doors.
Apparently, Van Damme showed up to film an infomercial with the company, but had no idea how to use the fitness machine.
Producers of the infomercial claim he grew frustrated that he couldn't figure out how to use it (although his wife figured it out right away…LOLz!) and REFUSED to continue filming the commercial!
His potentially costly mistake was then turning to his own reality television show's cameras and insisting he would never endorse a product he thinks is no good.
The action icon disappeared from the set, then called the producers after to officially resign from the project.
According to court documents filed on Monday in El Lay, the makers of the Total Flex are suing Van Damme for at least $25,000 for their financial losses during the fiasco!
Sounds like Jean-Claude wasn't very professional and may be gearing up to fork over some cash! If he didn't like the product, he shouldn't have agreed to endorse it!
