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.

What is wrong with you people? Bitch, bitch, bitch. They are very nice people. She is one of the sweetest girls around. Anybody who could not like her butt is crazy. She looks fantastic. He is very classy. She doesn't have to be like all the skinny girls, we should be glad. What is wrong with you people? What did they do to anybody? Sorry, but she was way too classy for Ben Affleck in the first place. I think she and Marc make the perfect couple.

Making "fun" of people because of the color of skin or their "size" is not important. This IS 2007. What ever happened to "Love Thy Neighbor...." . There is just waay tooo much predjudice going on here. Can't we focus on the subject at hand and not tear these people apart? We could all use a "dose" of nice--nice! Maybe the press goes too far...but, do we REALLY know these people?

Opps #48 should read "accounting people" and not whatever I typed while 1/2 awake.

But back to the point, you can't blame the guy for the taxes not being done. I think he honestly thought they were. Accordiding to the AP, one other guy he had working for him and his own brother (who handled his business affairs) have now plead guilty to tax felonies and will pay back taxes and fines on this issue. So they goofed, not him,, so give the guy a break.

As for them suing for such a LARGE amount of money, you have to understand the oodles and oodles of money the tabloids make. They only notice if you sue for an amount this large. Otherwise it's like a tiny mosquito or gnat they pay no attention.

I'm not that big of JLo or Marc Anthony fans (their music is ok but I'd probably never go see them in concert) but just trying to help set the record straight.

This does not have anything to do with money! it has to do with slander. If someone went around telling lies about me Esp: saying I was envolved in a herion Scandal I would be hopping mad and want revenge as well. If There is money involved it's the National Enquirer. after money. Not Jennifer Lopez, or Marc Anthony.

You see all the mean and hateful things you blogers say about people, do you think that's why the shooter at V.Tech: killed 32 people . he snaped because he couldn't take the verbal abuse? Any thing you say will be twisted and use aginst you in the world anytime. some people do not learn untill it's too late! one day you may make a hatefull remark and bang! So we need to be quick about hearing Slow about speaking it may save your life!

What    

#50 - my husband is in the Air Force and I wish they would take Rosie off the air. You have not a clue what is going on. My husband has been in 30 years and I can tell you that I would rather him be with a President that cares about us - then a President who cares about the women under his desk -- while is wife is upstairs. That is not honestly either!
Rosie just says HATE!! THAT IS NOT WHAT WE NEED RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

#5-YOU have the audacity to call someone/anyone a "stupid white f***"!?? And go further by say ". . .so stupid they catagorize people by their skin color".
The way you come off, it's very possible that you may be a racist yourself! I mean, if you want to make a point, then make it. But WHY did you have to bring ANY color (white) into it???? Whether the person making the comment was white or not, your point could of been taken just as clear without the color description. Or do you think because they didn't know the difference, it was because they were white???
Maybe you know the difference between Mexican and Puerto Rican, but you have so much to learn about morals and presenting yourself like a intelligent human being. How can you even be taken seriously or maturely when you use the kind of language that you did in your comment?? Or is that just normal talk in your way of life and circle of friends?????????????????? When someone feels the need to use the F-word that many times, whatever they have to say is a mute point with me! If you want to insult me and others, go ahead-and use some more of your grown-up classy language when you do it. Now. . . that's a vocabulary to really boast about and be proud of!! lol
