The Times reported this morning that the star is suing for breach of privacy.

The video was originally published by the National Enquirer but also features a Mail Online logo. The clip features Jolie speaking on the phone in a rambling manner.

The footage was shot by Franklin Meyer, a convicted drug dealer, who claims he was selling Jolie heroin and cocaine at the time of the clip.

The Mail’s article says: “MailOnline has reached out to Jolie’s reps for comment.”

On Thursday the Mail apologised to George Clooney for an inaccurate report about his family and his forthcoming wedding.
