Star Mag -- Katie Holmes AIN'T No Drug Addict

4/27/2011 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Star Magazine just issued a MASSIVE mea culpa to Katie Holmes -- publishing an apology on the COVER of its latest issue ... after the tabloid printed a headline suggesting Katie was a drug addict.

Katie Holmes Star Magazine
Katie filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against the magazine last month, claiming Star's January headline -- "ADDICTION NIGHTMARE! Katie DRUG SHOCKER! -- was "untrue, unethical and unlawful."

Katie Holmes Drugs

Katie's rep tells TMZ, the lawsuit is now water under the bridge ... that it's been settled ... and Star's publisher American Media even made a "substantial" donation to Katie's charity.

As for Star's in-mag apology -- it reads in part, “Star did not intend to suggest that Ms. Holmes was a drug addict or was undergoing treatment for a drug addiction.  Star apologizes to Ms. Holmes for any misperception ..."

Katie released her own statement today, saying, “I’m pleased that this lawsuit could be resolved amicably and accept American Media’s apology.”

Katie Holmes is on a drug called Tom Cruise's Scientology.
Not quite as exciting as the drug called Charlie Sheen.
Given the choice, I'd rather take Sheen's ride rather than the a snooze Cruise.

Scientologists are extremely litigious. They will go after anyone and everyone. I won't say anymore because I don't want to be sued.

@ #1 No offense, but while she is Mrs. Cruise, she remains Ms. Holmes.

Also, Star is such a trashy magazine. If they're not telling lies, they're covering "exclusive" interviews those famous-for-nothing Kardashians.

ok..you take one bad picture of someone whos not having a good hair day or face day and it completely gets over drawn and blown way out of context and all of a sudden this person is a druggie? wow! and the scientology crap is bs.Scientology has been around for a long time and i dont think its going any where.Priscilla(wont call her by her last name because she does not deserve the title) wanted to put lisa marie presley in scientology years ago when elvis was still alive and he wouldnt have it because he knew that they were only after money and what did she do after he died? put her right in there.Imop that place brain washes you and bleeds you dry.Thank you..

This is interesting. I applaud Katie for not just sitting back and letting them write whatever they want about her and instead taking action towards clearling the truth. Whats interesting is that magazines like Star and other tabloids basically do this all the time. That is what those magazines are. They are over the top, somewhat ridiculous claims without facts or evidence to support their claims. Thats how they sell their magazines. If more celebs took this approach when these tabloids report lies about them then these magazines would pretty much be out of business.

This is kind of a BS apology from the magazine. Obviously, it was the magazine's intention to make people believe that she was addicted to drugs!

1) The contribution to charity should match the profits from the sale of that issue.

2) Since they put a horrible picture of Holmes in the issue in which they implied she was a drug addict, they should have put a good picture of her of an equal size as the bad one on the cover in the apology issue.

The WORST part of all is the top left corner of the new issue. They state that Gaga is on coccaine and ectasy. She's really wild but I doubt she's into anything heavy like that. When will Star learn? Gaga has as much money as Katie, if not more, and can take them down!
