Published on the web, documents filed by attorneys for actress Reese Witherspoon in Los Angeles superior court, claim the magazine “Star” published a false story that she was pregnant “in a callous effort to boost the tabloid’s sagging sales.” According to TMZ.com.
“Contrary to the fabricated Cover Story,” the lawsuit says, “the true facts are that [Reese] is not pregnant, does not have a ‘baby bump’ and has not otherwise gained weight such that she has had to resort to wearing ‘Empire-waist dresses,’ ‘baggy clothing,’ or an ‘old-fashioned 1920′s bathing suit.’
In the TMZ article, Reese alleges in the suit that “this fabricated tall tale was brazenly published as a prominent and conspicuous cover story for the purpose of garnering the maximum attention to the tabloid.” The court papers can be seen on this page.
Reese’s attorneys claim the Star story “was a violation of Reese’s privacy and portrays her in a false light.” No monetary damages have been disclosed.
