Twitterer 'outs' alleged superinjunction celebs

OMG!

The smart choice: opportunity from uncertainty

Several celebrities have already come forward to deny claims by a user on Twitter over the weekend that they are the individuals behind "super injunctions.

The Twitter account-holder, who apparently set up the account on Sunday, posted a number of claims about several big names over the weekend.

Jemima Khan used her own Twitter feed to deny claims that she had been shagging Jeremy Clarkson, and worse yet, photographing the experience – surely a pernicious slur.

Khan said: "OMG – Rumour that I have superinjunction preventing publication of 'intimate' photos of me and Jeremy Clarkson. NOT TRUE."

She later revealed she had received a nice text from Clarkson, and from his wife.

She tweeted: "Got a nice text from Francie Clarkson and also one from Jeremy. It's odd. I'm sure I'd remember if any photos of us existed."

TV presenter Gabby Logan last week denied web rumours that she had sought an injunction to cover up a supposed affair with Alan Shearer.

There are something like 35 superinjunctions in place stopping papers from running stories, or even naming the people involved, or mentioning the existence of the injunction.

Many of these involve actors, bankers, celeb chefs and the inevitable footballers have already been outed either online or in the pub. Simple searches on some names return allegations supposedly at the centre of the injunctions.

Potentially more seriously, a Tory MP has claimed that another Member of Parliament has taken out a super injunction to stop publication of a story about them. ®
