Leonardo DiCaprio has won a lawsuit against a French magazine after editors printed a false love story about the actor and pop star RIHANNA in May (2015).
The actor filed the lawsuit against Oops! magazine back in June after the publication ran a scandalous cover story alleging the movie star had impregnated the R&B beauty and wanted nothing to do with her or the baby. The actor’s lawyer called the story “pure fantasy,” and sought damages of $28,800 (£18,000), which is the maximum allowed under French law.
Frederic Truskolaski, owner of Oops! and a defendant in the lawsuit, opened up about the case saying, “We were totally expecting this decision, since in France when any magazine speaks about a celebrity’s private life the magazine is automatically condemned.”
Currently, the publication’s owners must hand over $8,814 (£5,655) to DiCaprio in damages and legal fees and in addition, editors must acknowledge that Leonardo won the lawsuit in an upcoming issue.
