After an infomercial video and flyers for her alleged campaign with The Psychic Friends Networks hit the web on Monday, actress Vivica A. Fox contacted BV Buzz exclusively to address the matter.
In a statement that the star of ‘Two Can Play That Game’ and ‘Soul Food’ sent via e-mail late Monday night, she declared: “Vivica A. Fox is no friend of The Psychic Friends Network.”
Fox is alleging that the footage circulating online “is using her unauthorized likeness, footage, voice and photographs as an endorsement of their service.”
Additionally, the actress is demanding that The Psychic Friends Network “cease and desist immediately” with use of the video and images.
Details about why the video was shot or how the images were obtained by The Psychic Friends Network were not explained.
The 44-year old actress most recently starred on Larry David’s HBO series ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm.’
She also stars in the DVD release ‘Private Valentine: Blonde & Dangerous’ opposite Jessica Simpson, which hit stores this week.
Last year, the
South Bend, Indiana native hosted a reality series for VH1 called ‘Glam God with Vivica A. Fox.’
In the early 1990s, The Psychic Friends Network was a telephone psychic service hosted by Dionne Warwick that offered a call-in service where viewers could call psychics for $3.99 a minute.
The parent company, Inphomation, took in profits of over $100 million within the first few years of the Network’s operation.
In 1998, profits for The Psychic Friends Network had plummeted substantially and the company filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy before ultimately closing.
