Keira Knightley is reported to be taking legal action against the Daily Mail after the paper suggested that she lied about having an eating disorder.
The anorexia claim published by the Daily Mail has made Keira Knightley so furious that the actress then decided to take legal action against the publication.
The British movie star is reported to be taking legal action against the Daily Mail after the paper suggested that she lied about having an eating disorder. That's not all, the newspaper also published a picture of Keira in an article on January 11th about the death of a teenage girl suffering from anorexia.
Simon Smith, a lawyer with Schillings law firm, said that the photograph, which appeared along with remarks on her weight, implies she had lied about not suffering from the disorder. Thus, his client would challenge the suggestion that she was responsible for the girl's death "by setting a bad example."
The case is expected to go to jury trial at London's High Court either late this year or early next year if it does not settle sooner.
