Lisa Marie Presley
is suing U.K. tabloid the
over an article that discussed her weight gain and noted that she was "piling on the pounds." Presley was, in fact, pregnant, and she felt that the widely spread report, which she termed a "vicious personal attack," forced her to announce her pregnancy.
made her announcement Friday
on her MySpace page, on which she also lambasted the media. Lashing out, she wrote, "Once [the media] got a glimpse of my expanding physique a few days ago, they have been like a pack of coyotes circling their prey whilst eerily howling with delight."
Reiterating Presley's discontent - albeit with less vitriolic language - her lawyer told Reuters, "My client is deeply upset and offended by this article, especially as it was widely published just as she and her family were meant to be celebrating her happy news."
In addition to her newest baby on the way, Presley also has two teenage children from a previous marriage.
