Katie Holmes took an American tabloid to court and won the case. The tabloid had branded her a 'drug addict'.

Offended by the insinuation, Holmes had sued the publisher last month.

Star magazine has published an apology to the actress on the cover and inside its May 9 issue, saying it 'did not intend to suggest that Holmes was a drug addict or was undergoing treatment for drug addiction'.

In its apology, Star magazine wrote, "In a recent issue of Star, we published headlines about Katie Holmes that could be read to suggest that she was addicted to drugs.".

"Star apologises to Ms. Holmes for any misperception and will be making a substantial donation to charity on Holmes' behalf for any harm that we may have caused," the magazine added.

The 32-year-old actress accepted the apology and was pleased that the lawsuit has been resolved.

"With this dispute out of the way, I look forward to once again focusing my attention on my family and career," the Daily Mail quoted Holmes as saying.

Holmes' publicist, Ina Treciokas said that American Media Inc. gave a sizable donation to Dizzy Feet Foundation, an organization that teaches dance to underprivileged children.

Magazines should be extra careful in what they are writing. Writing facts, what is true, is more important rather than writing just to entice readers to buy your magazine. It's good that Katie Holmes took legal action against the magazine. At least now, they will be careful about what they'll write.
