MasterChef star issued legal letter by Elle MacPherson

Former MasterChef star Jimmy Seervai has revealed he has been issued with a legal letter from Elle Macpherson’s WelleCo.

The chef, who reinvented himself as a successful nutritional supplement manufacturer, said Macpherson was upset after he began selling replica versions of her supplement products at a bargain price.

The Daily Telegraph reported that Macpherson claims her famous ‘beauty wellness’ line has the ability to ‘liberate’ customers ‘to live the life they’ve longed for’.

However, Seervai believes the brand ‘mostly frees its customers from their hard-earned cash’.

Seervai, who founded and runs Nowra-based supplements business Life Botanics, has been drowning in threats of litigation since launching his thriving company in March.

In September, he received a cease-and-desist letter from lawyers demanding that he stop producing a supplement identical to Macpherson’s Super Elixir and Greens Elixir that retails for about $24.95,’ a fraction of WelleCo’s $88.

Seervai maintains that all major players in the supplement sector such as WelleCo, Swisse and Natures Way all outsource the production of their products to manufacturers like him.

He told the publication that he made products for all four of these brands – all of which were required to post their ingredients online, meaning there is full transparency in the sector.

“They all believe that with these products they have invented something that matches the Covid vaccine,” Seervai said.

‘They didn’t. They repeat what everyone else is doing, but just put a different spin on it.’

Jimmy rose to fame in 2010 when he appeared as a contestant on MasterChef.

Now the father of five, he is one of the key players in the supplement series in Australia.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to both parties for comment.
