Lily Allen sues Daily Mail

Legal Media

Katie Nicholl from the Daily Mail got off lightly just being called “a cunt” by Lily Allen at the weekend, her bosses have been hit with a legal action by the singer come fashion lady after pictures of her home in the Cotswolds appeared on the paper’s website earlier this year. Allen is suing for invasion of privacy and copyright infringement. 

Allen’s lawyers Atkins Thomson said in a statement: “We have today issued proceedings on behalf of Lily Allen against [Daily Mail owner] Associated Newspapers for copyright infringement and breach of confidence. This action is in relation to an article published in the Mail Online on 14 Sep 2010″.

It’s been a litigious year for Lily, having successfully sued French magazine So Foot earlier this year for fabricating comments about Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole. She also won damages from The Sun for republishing some of the So Foot article.
