Singer/actress Jessica Simpson has been accused of "hurting millions of fat people in America" by banning the sale of a secret fitness DVD.

Singer/actress Jessica Simpson has been accused of "hurting millions of fat people in America" by banning the sale of a secret fitness DVD.

The actress recorded the workout tape produced by fitness video company 'Speedfit' ahead of her role as Daisy Duke in the Dukes of Hazzard in 2005.

However, despite signing a multi-million dollar contract, the 27-year-old changed her mind and banned its release, reports New York gossip column PageSix.com.

'Speedfit' owner Alex Astilean has now launched a lawsuit against her manager dad Joe after failing to secure a $10m (€6.83m) settlement from Simpson last year.

Astilean says: "They are hurting millions of fat people in America."

Simpson's spokesman tells the publication: "It's a legal matter that's in the hands of attorneys."
