Nicole files lawsuit against British paper

Nicole Kidman is striking back at a British newspaper over its claims that she very publicly ditched Chanel No. 5 -- for which she's the spokesmodel -- in favor of another perfume. In a suit filed in London, the actress says that the Daily Telegraph made "grossly defamatory" statements when it reported that she was using a Jo Malone scent while pushing her new flick, "The Golden Compass," "dabbing it on whenever she had a moment." The paper suggested that Nic was jeopardizing her contract with Chanel by using the Jo Malone. Kidman's lawyers are seeking an immediate retraction. The Telegraph had no comment.
