Angelina Jolie Is Planning To Sue Daily Mail Over Heroin Video For Invasion of Privacy

Posted in: ,

Angelina Jolie has reportedly begun legal action against the Daily Mail for publishing a video online [here], which it claims shows her while she was addicted to heroin during the 1990s.

The newspaper suggested the footage, taken from the National Enquirer, featured a conversation between Jolie and her father Jon Voight about her brother James and late mother Marcheline Bertrand.

The Times writes Jolie is believed to regard the publication of the video as a gross violation of her privacy.

Former drug dealer Franklin Meyer claims he supplied cocaine and heroin three times a week to the actress and allegedly recorded the footage.

Reports of Jolie’s legal action come just days after the Daily Mail was forced to apologise to actor George Clooney for suggesting his fiancee’s mother objected to their marriage on religious grounds.

Clooney blasted the publication for the story, writing a blistering op-ed in USA Today, in which he accused the Daily Mail of behaviour that “should be criminal”.

Clooney has refused to accept the apology, taking to USA Today once more to say: “There is one constant when a person or company is caught doing something wrong. The coverup is always worse.”
