Katie Holmes has filed a defamation lawsuit against Star Magazine over its recent cover, implying that she is some sort of drug addict. The "addiction" to which the cover refers is to Scientologists' use of the "e-meter," a device that they believe detects mental distress. The Hollywood Reporter's Eriq Gardner likens Ms. Holmes' case to that of Kato Kaelin, who sued over Globe Communications' use of a headline during the O.J. Simpson murder trial that implied Mr. Kaelin was involved in the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
