Newspaper Apologises To Presley Over 'Fat' Jibes

LATEST: A U.K. newspaper has been forced to apologise to pregnant singer LISA MARIE PRESLEY after it published an article alleging she was overweight.
Elvis Presley's daughter says the Daily Mail's story, which was picked up by various media sources worldwide, ridiculed her appearance and forced her to disclose she is expecting a child.
Simon Smith, the star's U.K. lawyer, claimed the publication's claims she had an "unhealthy appetite" and is "growing like her dad" caused her to feel "deeply upset and offended".
On Friday (02May08) the 40-year-old received an apology from Associated Newspapers, the Daily Mail's publishers, after she launched a libel claim at London's High Court.
Presley has two teenage children from her previous marriage to Danny Keogh - Riley, 18, and 15-year-old Benjamin - but this is her first child with husband Michael Lockwood.

Lisa Marie Presley has humbled the "Daily Mail". Well done Lisa.The Vultures in the media have been gorging themselves on the Presley family, and Elvis fans for nearly 6 decades.For some reason the "Comments" section of the "Daily Mail" is not accepting our views. As always an Elvis song for such occasions, the lovely, "Is It So Strange?". :-)
