Celeb tired of being called gay online, decides to sue

Ron_Livingston If you search on Google, or any other search engine for that matter, for “Ron Livingston” (the guy on the right), you would be given his IMDB page, where it states he starred in Office Spaces and Sex and the City. Also, the second result would be his Wikipedia page, but it might be a tad bit inaccurate about his personal life.

Livingston, tired of having his Wikipedia page being edited (starting in May of this year) to say he is in a gay relationship with Lee Dennison, has decided to sue the anonymous trouble maker. It should be noted that he is married to a female, Rosemary De Witt.

Currently, his Wikipedia page mentions no references to his ‘relationship’ with Dennison, but previous entries – including one on December 5, has this line:

Livingston lives in Los Angeles with his life partner Lee Dennison. Livingston and Dennison married November 2nd, 2009 in San Francisco.

According to TMZ, this has also continued on Facebook, where the anon created fake profiles of both Livingston and Dennison and list their relationship status with each other.

The lawsuit, filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday, seeks unspecified damages for libel, invasion of privacy, and using his name and likeness without permission. While details are minimal, this could be interesting since it would require Wikipedia to reveal the identity of the poster.
