Calling Howard K. Stern Gay Isn’t Illegal. But Claiming He Had Gay Sex? Maybe

Oh, Howard K. Stern. The former Anna Nicole Smith hanger-on just had a judge tell him that he can’t sue for defamation per se just because Rita Cosby alleged he’s a big homo. But the judge did say that allegations of having homosexual sex, however, could be defamation, but that’s for a jury to decide. In the book about Smith, ex-MSNBC anchor Cosby says Stern and Larry Birkhead got it on, and that Smith had a tape of it that she saw. So the $60 million libel lawsuit moves forward, with 11 possibly defamatory statements about gay sex still on the docket.
