Libel settlement for Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson has accepted libel damages from a supermarket tabloid that claimed she was dangerously thin.
The British edition of the National Enquirer has agreed to pay undisclosed damages and print an apology for an October 2005 article that claimed Hudson was “way too thin” and looked “like skin and bones,” Simon Smith, a lawyer for the 27-year-old actress, said Thursday.
American Media Inc., the magazine’s U.S.-based publisher, apologized for “the deep distress and acute embarrassment” caused by the allegations, which it acknowledged were false.
Smith said Hudson lost weight to get in shape for a film after giving birth to her son.
