Katie Holmes Sues Star Magazine

3/1/2011 4:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katie Holmes just filed a $50 million libel lawsuit against the publishers of “Star” magazine after a recent cover insinuated she's a drug addict.

The centerpiece of the lawsuit is the headline, “ADDICTION NIGHTMARE - Katie DRUG SHOCKER! – The Real Reason She Can’t Leave Tom”  -- while the actual article does NOT allege any drug use by Katie we’re told she feels the suggestive cover is deliberately defamatory and is libelous on its own.

The lawsuit states, "[Katie] has no intention of leaving her husband, and is not prevented from doing so by any drug addiction."

Holmes' attorney tells TMZ, "Star Magazine's malicious claims about Katie are untrue, unethical and unlawful.  Not only do they cruelly defame Katie, they play a cheap trick on the public, making ridiculously false claims on the cover unsupported by anything inside."

And, the attorney adds, "Someone should bring a class action to get all buyers their money back."

Holmes is seeking $50 million in damages from American Media Inc.

She did an interview a long time ago that she said her mother always knows when there is something wrong with her because it shows in her eyes. Every pic you see of her lately her eyes look dead.

I doubt she'll see a dime, Its not like people could think any less of her at this point. But honestly who cares. she's a useless person. in fact i'd like her more if she was on drugs.... at least she'd have an excuse for her horrible life choices, and her stroke victim face.

Good for you Katie ,it's about time someone did this! The money she is asking for just might scare the hell out of them from publishing other untrue garbage. I say the girl has a good head on her shoulders.

She's looked very unhappy ever since the honeymoon has ended. Never flashes that winning smile anymore. She looks years beyond her age. Apparently she's a turbo shopper. What void is she trying to fill by shopping?

She's only suing because she can't EARN a living since marrying Captain Crazy.

LOL! I totally agree with your comment! I truly believe Katie Holmes' career was over the day she hooked up with Tom Cruise. For ANY acting job she now gets, people believe she only got the role because she is "connected" through Tom Cruise. Without him, she probably would get acting roles and people would say "remember Katie Holmes from 'Dawson's Creek?' She is in this movie or TV show and is pretty good." Since she has been with him and all the made up "religion" and other garbage he proudly wears, her value as an actress has gone down with the public.

One other thing: My teen son picked up a magazine and was looking at a photo of Suri (I personally DETEST that name; but it IS their choice to name their child whatever they want) and he truly was freaked out. He didn't know who she is; teenaged boys don't keep up with children of celebrities who are old enough to be their parents. What he did know was he saw a photo of a little girl, barely past toddler age, walking in a pair of heels and carrying a designer handbag. This is a teenaged boy stating how inappropriately this extremely young child is dressed. Please, keep this child age appropriate in her dress!

Katie is going to win this lawsuit and rightly so. What kind of a country allows these magazines to tell lies and get away with it? I hope she puts them out of business, and other magazines like this take note.
