(TMZ.com) Lark Voorhies, the actress who played Lisa Turtle in TV's 'Saved by the Bell,' has sued the National Enquirer for allegedly libeling her with accusations she had a cocaine addiction.
In a filing Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Voorhies is asking for unspecified punitive damages as a result of the June 2005 article, which quoted a "friend" of Voorhies' as saying she has a "terrible drug problem" and was "bipolar."
The actress says the allegations are false.
Voorhies says the Enquirer article cost her several acting jobs, invaded her privacy, and caused her "humilation, embarrassment, hurt feelings, mental anguish, and suffering."
A month after the article appeared, Voorhies' doctor, Howard Askins, wrote a letter saying she didn't have a cocaine addiction and wasn't admitted to the hospital for substance abuse.

MUST BE A SLOW NEWS DAY? SAVED BY THE BELL REALLY SUCKED
