Hugh Grant and his girlfriend Jemima Khan have launched legal proceedings against a British newspaper over claims it made about their relationship this weekend(03June06).
Hugh Grant and his girlfriend Jemima Khan are filing a libel suit against British newspaper Daily Mail over its article about their relationship which was published this weekend June 3rd, 2006.
The actor is infuriated over an article in the paper titled, "I never knew he was such a good actor," which he claims is "false and defamatory." Worse, the newspaper has again in an article published on Monday June 5, claimed the pair has been "secretly" engaged for six months, which has yet been confirmed.
Due to such fact, Hugh and Jemima have instructed their London lawyers to press ahead with legal proceedings against the related publication, insisting the sources are made-up.
Solicitors Schillings warns other publications that since the story's allegation "constitutes the entire, specious, basis for the remainder of the article, it follows that the numerous allegations including supposed quotes from sources are false and indeed fabricated."
