Katie Holmes & Suri Shop At Kaboodles
Katie Holmes and her stylish daughter Suri shopped at Kaboodles toy store in Vancouver on Tuesday (March 1).
In recent news Holmes has filed a libel lawsuit against American Media, Inc. for Star’s recent report that she has a drug problem.
Seeking $50 million in damages, Katie's reaction comes after the untruthful publication released a January cover story with a headline reading: “ADDICTION NIGHTMARE- Katie DRUG SHOCKER! The real reason she can’t leave Tom."
The inside story never asserts Holmes was using drugs, according to the suit. Instead the story says Holmes uses a device called an e-meter in Scientology sessions that has “an effect similar to heroin.” The device supposedly emits a low-level electric current that releases endorphins.
The suit was filed in Los Angeles federal court by celebrity lawyer Bert Fields, according to Reuters and the Associated Press. “Star Magazine's malicious claims about Katie are untrue, unethical and unlawful,” he said in a statement. “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.”
A spokesperson for the magazine’s publisher, American Media, said the company will “vigorously defend” the lawsuit.
