Kournikova and Soltesz-Benetton are each seeking damages in excess of $10 million in separate lawsuits.

Penthouse's June cover screams, "Anna Kournikova Caught Close Up on Nude Beach."

For the sake of journalism, we carefully reviewed Penthouse's Web site. (No, you can find the address yourself.) The home page contains a prominent statement under the headline, "Penthouse Apologizes." The publication claims it was misled and believed the pictures were genuinely of Kournikova.

Penthouse got their tit in the wringer this time: It's usually the breasts that are fake, not the entire person!
