Hewitt is suing the magazine after it published photoraphs of Hewitt, her children and a man. It suggested the accompanying man was a former fitness instructor from Texas.

ABC News reports Hewitt's lawyer had told the South Australia Supreme Court that the man is the former soap star's brother. She wants New Idea to reveal where the story came from, while the magazine is intent on protecting its sources. 


Justice Robert Lunn, meanwhile, has said Hewitt's lawyer had satisfied one of four legal grounds. The judge has invited the lawyer to redraft the defamation claim. Another hearing will be held next week.
