I read about this settlement in a number of North American papers this weekend, but wanted to see what the Irish wrote considering it was the Dubliner Magazine who published the “utterly false, cheap, tasteless and deliberately offensive” story saying a topless photo of a woman was Elin Woods.
Now as we can all attest, Elin Woods is one beautiful woman and has been voted, legitimately, the the world’s hottest WAG. Back in October, she topped a poll of the sexiest sporting other halves on the planet. Hard to disagree with that when see this picture, eh?
Anyway, I think the settlement wasn’t big enough – not even close. They settled for half of 250,000 quid which includes certain conditions and an apology. I would have gone for millions and closed the magazine down!
The good news is that the money will be donated to cancer charities in memory of the late wife of Irish golfer Darren Clarke.
She’s one gracious lady. I would love to see her take on something after Sam grows up a bit – a cause or something just for her (like Hillary did with Bill) 🙂
