Tabloid apologizes for Britney Spears, Kevin Federline split stories

UPI News Service, 07/19/2006 

The National Enquirer apologized to Britney Spears in its British edition for publishing two stories that said she and Kevin Federline had split.

The tabloid ran a story on June 5 with the headline, "Britney marriage is over!," a week later they published "Britney and Kevin: And now their divorce!," e! Online reported Wednesday.

After Spears' legal team in Britain objected to the claims the Enquirer issued a retraction and apology.

"Contrary to what our articles might have suggested, we now accept that their marriage is not over and they are not getting divorced. These allegations are untrue and we now accept Britney's position that the statements are without foundation. We apologize for any distress caused."

"The couple are very satisfied with the Enquirer's prompt and good-faith response," Spears' attorney Paul Tweed said, stating that the action was "a rare if not unprecedented gesture." He also said that the publication would not be sued.
