New York — Actress Lindsay Lohan and her mother have filed a lawsuit accusing Fox News TV host Sean Hannity and guest commentator Michelle Fields of defamation for claiming the actress and her mother did cocaine together.

Court papers filed on Monday say the claim was made during a discussion of celebrity overdoses on Hannity's show on 4 February last year, two days after actor Philip Seymour Hoffman died of a heroin overdose. The suit says Fields stated as a "matter a fact" that Dina Lohan was doing cocaine with her daughter.

The suit says the Lohans want the segment taken off Hannity's website. They're also seeking unspecified damages.

Fox News says it did removed the clip from its archives and issued an on-air apology and that the network says it will defend itself.
