Katie Holmes has been vindicated. The Kennedys star, 32, settled a lawsuit she filed against Star magazine, which alleged she was a drug addict.
Holmes filed the $50 million defamation lawsuit against the magazine for its January headline titled “Addiction Nightmare! Katie Drug Shocker!’’
Star originally stood by the story, but in this week’s issue, editors backpedaled: “Star apologizes to Ms. Holmes for any misperception and will be making a substantial donation to charity on Ms. Holmes’ behalf for any harm that we may have caused.’’
