Olsen Takes Legal Action Against National Inquirer

Ashley Olsen is taking legal action against US tabloid the National Inquirer over allegations they made concerning her drug use.

The actress claims the allegations in the article are false and an attempt to ruin the career she has built with her twin sister Mary-Kate.

The story itself has the headline “Ashley Olsen Caught in Drug Scandal,” with a photo showing Olsen with her eyes half shut.

She is seeking $40 million in compensation claiming there was no scandal until the article was printed and that although she understands the importance of the “freedom of the press” it should not be a license to print false rumors.

The Inquirer is sticking by its story.
