David Bar Katz, a playwright and close friend of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, has sued the National Enquirer after it reported that he and Hoffman were gay lovers.
Hoffman was found dead in his bathroom by Katz on February 2nd after he failed to fetch his children from his estranged girlfriend. However, the newspaper printed a story that claimed that Katz saw Hoffman freebasing cocaine the night before (which means heating the cocaine to make it "pure" and then, usually, smoking it).
The Enquirer printed an alleged quote that said: “I was Philip Seymour Hoffman’s gay lover. We were homosexual lovers. We had a relationship. We were planning to go to the Super Bowl together and have a really nice day. This is so terrible.”
However, Katz denies saying anything of the sort, and that the story is completely false. Katz denies any homosexual relations with Hoffman, as well as being present when Hoffman was taking drugs. Katz is suing the publication for $50 million, due to their fabrication and misrepresentation.
The extent of the relationship between Hoffman and Katz remains open to interpretation, but at this point it seems like they were just close friends and nothing else more.
