Celine Slaps "Enquirer" With $20 Million Suit

Celine Dion is battling back against the tabloids and has filed a $20 million lawsuit against the "National Enquirer" for a story suggesting that the French-Canadian songstress was pregnant with twins.

The Associated Press reports that lawyers for Dion filed the papers on Monday at a Los Angeles Superior Court, claiming intentional infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy, and unfair business practices.

The singer took issue with a cover story that appeared in the February 1 edition of the "National Enquirer" that featured the headline "Celine: I'm Pregnant With Twins."

Dion's attorney, Martin Singer, declared that the story was "absolutely false" and that no one from the "Enquirer" had attempted to verify the story with her publicist or spokespeople prior to publishing it.

Celine currently has the number three album in the country with "All The Way... A Decade Of Song,'' and in January the singer renewed her marriage vows with manager-husband

Rene Angelil at a lavish "Arabian Nights"-themed ceremony staged at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.
