Back in January, Star ran a cover claiming Katie Holmes was a drug addict and could not leave Tom Cruise because of her problems.
Only only problem: that story was not true. Not even close.
Holmse sued for more than $50 million in damages, settling the case on Wednesday.
The magazine donated money to Dizzy Feet Foundation and apologized for its erroneous claim.
They issued a public statement and included an apology on the cover of its May 9 issue.
An inside page contains further clarification, reading Star “did not intend to suggest that Ms. Holmes was a drug addict or was undergoing treatment for drug addiction.”
Given the cover in question, it is hard to see how that is true, but Holmes accepted the apology.
