Jennifer Hudson slimmed down with the help of Weight Watchers, but after four years the partnership has come to an end.
American Idol alum Hudson began working with Weight Watchers in 2010, shedding more than 80 pounds while working as a spokesperson for the brand.
"After four years of a successful and rewarding partnership, Weight Watchers and Jennifer Hudson are ending our official partnership, though we're confident Jennifer will remain a Lifetime Member," said Weight Watchers to Us Weekly. The break was mutual for both parties.
Hudson spoke to People about the change, saying, "My experience with Weight Watchers has truly been life changing" and noting that she will always remember what she learned while working as a spokesperson. She also noted that she plans to move forward with her creative endeavors, including new music and new projects.
Weight Watchers will continue to use Jessica Simpson as their celebrity spokesperson, who joined Weight Watchers two years ago. Simpson lost 70 pounds after the birth of her daughter in 2012, and has dropped more weight after the birth of her son last summer, Us added.
