Businesswoman and former beauty queen, Basetsana Kumalo found herself embroiled in a weight-loss scam earlier this week.

Now, she is reportedly taking legal action against the company, Garcinia Gambogia for associating her name with the weight-loss product.

A Facebook advert was circulated on the social media platform with pictures of her "weight-loss transformation" as a result of using the product.

Basetsana, who gave birth to her third child five months ago, told Sowetan newspaper that she's on a strict workout regime to lose some baby weight.  "I work out at gym. I do boxing, sprinting, swimming, a lot of cardio including treadmill and weights and I eat right," she said.

She says many women who look up to her as a role model may have seen the advert and would want to use that product.

So there you have it ladies- exercise, exercise & more exercise!
