Shields & Enquirer settle

Actress Brooke Shields has come to an agreement with the NationalEnquirer after alleging the tabloid checked her mother out of a NewJersey nursing home last month

Actress Brooke Shields has come to an agreement with the National Enquirer after alleging the tabloid checked her mother out of a New Jersey nursing home last month, people.com reports.

“Two weeks ago, Brooke Shields was forced to make a public disclosure about her mother, Teri Shields’ health, when we learned that Mrs. Shields had been taken out of a care facility by a reporter and photographer working for the National Enquirer and I was told that the National Enquirer was going to print information about her condition and whereabouts,” Shields’ attorney, Gerald B. Lefcourt says in an exclusive statement to People.

“I am very pleased to report that (the) National Enquirer was prevailed upon not to publish a story. Further, it has or will be apologizing publicly. Finally, it has agreed to make a generous donation to further research on dementia and to encourage others to do so.”

At the time of the incident, the actress said in a statement to People that she had been "alerted by Old Tappan Police that my mother had been signed out of the facility by two reporters of the National Enquirer.”
