February 26, 2014 15:57:26 GMT


The man that National Enquirer called Philip Seymour Hoffman's gay lover has won a settlement from the magazine over the false report. Playwright David Bar Katz launched a $50 million lawsuit against Enquirer for printing and publishing a story of him romancing the actor shortly before his death in early February.

Katz got Enquirer to grant $45,000 each year to newly-formed American Playwriting Foundation in Hoffman's honor. The money will aid unproduced plays and the prize will be called the Relentless Award. "It's enough for the foundation to give out these grants for years to come," Katz told NY Times.
