Nicole Richie’s ex-fiance Adam Goldstein has launched legal action against a New York newspaper over a story about the former couple’s break-up.
Goldstein – who goes under the moniker of DJ AM – proposed to the socialite in 2004 but the couple called off their engagement the following year.
Now the DJ is suing the New York Daily News for libel and invasion of privacy over a story about the split.
In papers filed at Los Angeles’ Superior Court on 27 June, Goldstein has hit back at the article, which focused on his financial affairs and his DJing career.
The lawsuit states: “DJ AM’s career has continued to thrive. Even though a minimal amount of research would have, at the very least, caused Daily News to have entertained serious doubts about the credibility of its supposed source(s), defendants appear to have elected time to publish the sloppy and false article.”
Goldstein is seeking at least $10 million (GBP5 million) in damages, and a permanent injunction banning further publication of the information included in the Daily News article.
