J.Lo to Smack National Enquirer Over Heroin Story

4/16/2007 4:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony are furious over a report that they were involved in a heroin scandal -- and now the hopping mad couple is hopping the pond to seek revenge in court.

Both J.Lo and Marc are set to file several lawsuits against the National Enquirer in the United Kingdom, claiming that any link to a drug scandal is pure BS. They're hoping that celeb-friendly libel laws in the U.K. will result in harsher punishment than they might find stateside.

The March, 2007 article at the center of the controversy, printed in British and Irish editions of the Enquirer, accused both Lopez and Anthony of being "caught up in a heroin scandal." The Enquirer also printed a photo of Anthony standing with photographer Michael Star, who is facing heroin and child pornography charges in the United States.

According to AP, the couple is demanding "a six figure settlement," an apology and a retraction.

Get real. Being involved in a scandal can mean anything from being witness to being a participant. If the photo is accurate, then MA is involved because he could be a witness to MS's drug use and kiddie-porn activities.

to OG- n and N**** from Brooklyn-You are correct "All American" is an idiot, but please don't sink to the racist level of making the assumption that the person who posted that is white, or for that matter conveys an attitude that is common among white people. I am white, I am not a racist. I don't think I'm better than anybody else. I don't think any race is superior to another. Sometimes it seems as though people get so defensive that they become offensive. Your comments were as offensive to me as the comments of "All-American" were to you. PLEASE STOP HATING. Also, you shouldn't refer to yourselves by such names.

In case some of you are not aware Puerto Ricans are natural US CITIZENS from birth. We are not here illegally. And for that bright human that wrote comment #3. I am not a big fan of J-LO just her husband's music and I can assure that money is the last thing she needs. "ALL AMERICAN" next time try getting inform before making an ass of yourself.

PUERTO RICANS AND MEXICANS ARE THE SAME. LATINO, HISPANIC WHATEVER THE US GOVERNMENT IS CALLING THEM THEM TODAY.

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT A LATINO IS ANYWAY. I ASSUME THE WHITE MALES FROM SPAIN RAPPED INDIAN WOMEN IN LATIN AMERICA AND STARTED MAKING CHILDREN WITH THEM AND THOSE CHILDREN MARRIED OTHER INDIANS AND SOME MIXED INDIANS MIXED WITH WHITE AND MORE MIXED WITH WHITE MARRIED MIXED WITH WHITE AND THATS HOW YOU GET A LATINO.

I DON'T KNOW KNOW WHAT THEY ARE JUST MIXED UP I GUESS

What    

You guys believe everything you read! You don't know them and you still think you can have an idea about their life. You will make it up or call them mexicans- which I don't think matters anyway. If the media hates them - then so do you !!! Think about your own life before you say things about others!!!! Just like Debra Opri - you loved her until she gave Larry the bill!!!
