BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 27 (UPI) -- The National Enquirer has published an apology for its front page headline stating Ashley Olsen was linked to a drug scandal.

"The article concerned certain legal proceedings involving Scott Sartiano and did not in any way accuse Ms. Olsen of being involved in those proceedings or of being involved in any drug scandal or any association with any type of illegal drugs.
