Tons Of People Have Gotten Screwed Over By Kate Hudson's Athletic Wear Company

Fabletics, and the $1 billion startup that owns it, JustFab, have gotten more than 1,000 complaints calling the companies a scam. A BuzzFeed News investigation found that JustFab’s co-CEOs and co-founders have been conning consumers into unwanted subscriptions since at least 2004.

JustFab, the startup that owns Kate Hudson's workout clothing line Fabletics, Kim Kardashian's ShoeDazzle, FabKids, and FL2, is reportedly valued at more than $1 billion.

Women have complained that it's not clear they're signing up for subscriptions with JustFab and Fabletics, which refer to them as "VIP Memberships." Others complain that it's difficult to cancel, as cancellations can be made only over the phone.
