I have a situation where one spouse has contributed to a news article that speaks about the 'abuse' she received from her ex and how affected she is. The abuse did not happen and cannot be proven. It is clearly an article about the defamed person as her photo sits with it (poorly shadowed) and describes exact events that have happened. It has also been shared within a secret group on Facebook that she belongs to and her name has been mentioned in the comments. The article has had the names of her and the defamed person changed, but it is undeniably her. She makes claims of him having a 'mistress', however, he was separated at the time. Made claims about him writing off his motorcycle which wasn't the case as I actually rode it for him not long after. She made claims that during the bike accident, he was on drugs which were not the case. Alcohol was involved, but the police report had no indication of drugs. There were also claims about abuse and etc, to which there are no police reports and never happened in the first place (only psychologists to confirm she is crazy from this 'abuse'). She is simply writing a mean article with false information. Can anyone shed some light on this? My concerns are, the name isn't specifically mentioned for either party. There is another mutual contact who has made a contribution to the article who is named - can he or the author be forced to name her to prove it was her contribution of defamation about person?
