Star Magazine has issued an apology to Katie Holmes because of a recent headline about the actress.
The actress had filed a multi-million lawsuit against the publication after it recently published an article titled “ADDICTION NIGHTMARE – Katie DRUG SHOCKER! – The Real Reason She Can’t Leave Tom.”
The magazine announces the apology on the cover of its most recent issue.
“In a recent issue of Star, we published headlines about Katie Holmes that could be read to suggest that she was addicted to drugs," reads the apology printed in the issue published on Wednesday.
"Star did not intend to suggest that Ms. Holmes was a drug addict or was undergoing treatment for a drug addiction. 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.”
Holmes issued a statement which said: “I’m pleased that this lawsuit could be resolved amicably and accept American Media’s apology. With this dispute out of the way, I look forward to once again focusing my attention on my family and career.”
As part of the settlement, Star's parent company, American Media, agreed to make a donation on Holmes behalf to the Dizzy Feet Foundation, which helps underprivileged children pursue their love of dance.
