George was furious about the article and published a lengthy rebuttal where he attacked the Mail and accused them of "fabricating" their article.

George has now admitted that despite it all, he rather enjoyed being able to take on the Daily Mail with his own article, telling Variety: “It’s just fun to slap those bad guys every once in a while, knock ‘em around.

“Those are really bad guys and they do tend to tee off on everybody.

“Every day they write things that aren’t true, but every once in a while they write something that is actually dangerous to your family, and it’s probably not true. And that’s the one you pick.”

“The problem is that none of that is true. The original story never cites that source, but instead goes out of its way to insist on four different occasions that ‘a family friend’ spoke directly to the Mail. A " family friend" was the source. So either they were lying originally or they're lying now.”

Since then, it’s been reported that fellow A-lister Angelina Jolie is planning to take legal action against the publication, after they published a video from the 1990s which they claim shows the actress while she was addicted to heroin.
