Katie Holmes Sues Star
Actress Mrs. Tom Cruise Katie Holmes is suing the publishers of Star Magazine for libel. A January Star cover made suggestions that Holmes was a drug addict and featured the headline “Katie DRUG SHOCKER!” The cover featured a picture of a homely looking Holmes and the story claimed she was “trapped in a cycle of addictive treatments,” and also that she was seeking to divorce husband Tom Cruise. Holmes is using Star for $50 Million in damages. Click the image to enlarge.
Holmes isn’t the first star to sue the magazine. Soccer star David Beckham unsuccessfully tried to sue Star over a story claiming that he was cheating on his wife with a prostitute. A federal cited the magazine’s First Amendment Rights and stated Beckham’s attorneys hadn’t proved the magazine printed the story with malice.
