Katie Holmes settles lawsuit with Star

 

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.’’

Get offa me!

Paris Hilton had quite a scare when her boyfriend Cy Waits was attacked outside an L.A. courtroom.

Ironically, the incident happened as the heiress was heading in to testify against an alleged stalker who is accused of trying to break into her Hollywood home last year.

Paris Tweeted: “That other psycho intruder just punched Cy in the back of the head as we were walking into the court house. So scary!”

James Rainford reportedly yelled out that he had permission from Paris’ father, Rick Hilton, to marry her, TMZ reported.

Not funny enough?

Good thing Hilton didn’t stay with Brandon Davis. The Hollywood socialite and grandson of late philanthropist Marvin Davis was arrested for battery and possession of a controlled substance. Seems he got into an altercation with Ben Gleib, a roundtable guest on Chelsea Lately. Cops were called to the Roosevelt Hotel after Brandon allegedly punched the comedian in the face.

When cops arrived they found some unknown drug on Davis’ person.

A new Journey

Is Fergie next? Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas is a new dad.

The 35-year-old musician (born Jamie Gomez) and his wife Jaymie Dizon welcomed their second child, a son named Journey. The couple’s first son was born in July 2009.

“The wifey is doing really good,’’ the rapper live Tweeted. “I feel more focused and in control and not nervous at all.’’

The Black Eyed Peas musician live-tweeted his son’s birth, documenting everything from his wife’s epidural to her increasing dilation.

Taboo is also father to 17-year-old Joshua, from a previous relationship.
