Trevi Sues Tv Network For Defamation

Fallen Latin pop star GLORIA TREVI has filed a defamation lawsuit against bosses at a Mexican TV network, accusing them of spreading lies about her to ruin her chances of making a comeback.
The star spent almost five years in jail awaiting trial on charges of kidnapping, rape and corruption of minors; she was acquitted in 2004 because of a lack of evidence.
But Trevi claims executives at TV Azteca, its U.S. affiliate Azteca America, and Pati Chapoy, host of popular entertainment news show Ventaneando, launched a campaign to discredit her and wreck her chances of making a successful return to the spotlight by starting rumours about her - including claims she had been spotted with a notorious drug cartel leader.
She filed legal papers in Hidalgo County district court on Tuesday (14Apr09) for slander, libel and defamation, among other charges.
Requests for a comment from Azteca America and TV Azteca had not been returned as WENN went to press.
Trevi is seeking unspecified damages in the suit.
