Katie Holmes Is Suing Star Magazine Over Drug Cover

Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes is suing Star Magazine for $50 million after the mags recent cover insinuating that she is a drug addict.

The cover of the January 2011 issue reads: ADDICTION NIGHTMARE – Katie DRUG SHOCKER! – The Real Reason She Can’t Leave Tom” and although the actual article doesn’t allege any drug use by Katie 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.  Someone should bring a class action to get all buyers their money back.”
