Singer Sues U.K. Daily Over 'Drunken Karaoke' Story

Charlotte ChurchCharlotte Church (Image via RottenTomatoes.com)MGN, Ltd.-owned The People (People.co.uk) on its Website boasts it is "the best source for national and international news, celebrity gossip, lifestyle ideas and pet care." The English daily, however, will have a hard time convincing singer Charlotte Church, who has sued The People for defamation, according to an article in The Guardian.

Church is upset about an article that appeared last November 6 entitled Marryoke--Charlotte proposes after club karaoke session claiming that she proposed to boyfriend Jonathan Powell and sang karaoke in a Cardiff pub, all while well into her cups. Church and Powell, in fact, were performing a concert in Pentrych at the Acapella Studio during the time the alleged Cardiff pub shenanigans were occurring, according to a report in The Daily Mail.

The People published an apology to Church three weeks after the article initially appeared, but this Church does not dispense forgiveness. Instead, in her defamation suit, she alleges the defendant fabricated quotes attributed to her, Powell and unnamed friends of the duo that caused her hurt, embarrassment and distress.

Church wants damages from The People and an injunction barring the allegations in the Nov. 6 story from appearing again. She currently is waging war on two fronts, as she and her parents in a lawsuit have alleged News International hacked her phone.
