    The first answerer is incorrect. This category is News and Events. Celebrities are often in the news and so are their defamation cases, so I think you are in the right category with your question.

    A couple of famous defamation cases were/are:

    1. David Schwimmer sued former Hollywood fund-raiser Aaron Tonken alleging that Tonken told the National Enquirer that two Rolex watches were required by Schwimmer in order to attend the charity dinner.

    2. Sharon Stone sued plastic surgeon Renato Calabria alleging that he falsely told reporters that she had undergone a facelift.

    3. "Wheel of Fortune's" Vanna White sued because someone used a robot-like figure with a wig standing before a letterbox similar to that used by Wheel of Fortune.

    4. Bette Middler received $400,000 when she sued for a similar voice that sang on a commercial.

    5. Dustin Hoffman, won $3 million from a Los Angeles fashion magazine for a Tootsie takeoff.

    8. Nelson Mandela has filed a lawsuit against a former associate in order to protect his name and a number of original paintings that he had signed alleging forgery by his former associate.

    9. Famed British couple, David and Victoria Beckham, are suing their former nanny for telling the tabloids that their marriage is in trouble. According to the lawsuit, the nanny's contract contained an agreement not to talk about the celebrity couple's private lives.
