Hoffman's pal sues mag for $50mln over 'gay lover' claim

New York, Feb 6 : Philip Seymour Hoffman's friend David Bar Katz, who found the actor's dead body, has filed a 50-million-dollar libel suit over a National Enquirer report that claimed that the men were secretly gay lovers.


Katz filed court papers which called the article one of the most reprehensible examples of yellow journalism, the New York Post reported.

Judd Burstein, Katz's lawyer has blasted the report as a stomach-turning, egregious use of a tragedy to make a quick buck.

National Enquirer had claimed in the article that Katz has told them that he and Hoffman were homosexual lovers and he saw Hoffman smoke freebase cocaine shortly before his body was discovered.
