Dion Sues Enquirer Over Twins Story

Singer seeks $20 million, says she's constantly denying rumors tale started.

French Canadian pop singer Celine Dion is suing the tabloid National Enquirer for $20 million for falsely reporting that she is pregnant with twins. The suit, filed on Monday (Feb. 28) in Los Angeles Superior Court, claims false invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress and unfair business practices. Dion said she was hurt by the article "Celine: I am pregnant with twins" in the tabloid's Feb. 1 issue because she and her husband have been trying to have a baby. "I am deeply affected by this story," Dion said in a statement. "Since the publication of the news article, everybody is congratulating me, and I have to endlessly repeat that it is not true." In 1998, Dion sued a French paper for printing a story that suggested she was unable to have a child.
