Zoo pays out over 'porn star' claims

Weekly lads’ mag Zoo has apologised and agreed to pay “substantial” damages to photographer and actress Koo Stark after printing an article last May which wrongly alleged she was a porn star.

The Emap-owned magazine printed an apology in the 16 February 2007 edition and agreed to pay Stark’s legal costs as well as the undisclosed damages.

Stark said in a statement that she is relieved that her name has been cleared of the “highly damaging” allegation.

She said: “I am delighted that the record has finally been set straight and my name cleared of an allegation that my family and I have found deeply distressing and hurtful.”

Emap refused to comment on the matter
