Octavia Spencer's legal feud with weightloss company heading to court

Oscar winner OCTAVIA SPENCER's legal battle with a top weightloss company is set to hit court.

The Help star is suing bosses at Sensa for allegedly failing to pay her in full for an endorsement deal.

She claims she received a termination notice a year ago (Jul14) from Sensa chiefs who took issue with tweets she failed to pre-approve as part of the agreement, but Spencer insists she did more than expected for the diet company.

Sensa bosses fired back by alleging that it was Spencer who made an anticipatory breach of her endorsement contract.

Last week (17Jul14), Los Angeles Superior Judge Michael Stern denied Sensa's motion for summary judgment at a hearing, and ruled Spencer had presented enough evidence to try the case.

Her attorney, Bryan Freedman, says, "Ms. Spencer looks forward to presenting the true facts at trial."
