Daily Star is Sued By Niall Horan

One Direction star Niall Horan is suing the Daily Star after an article alleging he took hard drugs.


Niall Horan, one fifth of One Direction, is reported to be suing the Daily Star.

It is claimed that Horan is suing the red top newspaper over a story entitled 'a new drug storm'.

Horan is suing the newspaper after claiming that the article in question could be construed to be 'capable of bearing a defamatory meaning'.

Previously, Horan was successful in sinning a libel case against Express Newspapers.

A judge has already agreed with Horan's claim against the Daily Star.

The article claimed that Horan had used hard drugs, such as crystal meth or crack, while spending time with Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson.

The Daily Star has responded by saying that the article did not bear the alleged meaning, and that it was not defamatory toward Horan.

The newspaper has asked London's High Court to stop the action; a judge has since dismissed this.
