Is This Deliberate?

I found a misprint/typo in Metro yesterday that made me laugh.

The article is about Tom Cruise's wedding to Katie Holmes. It starts off as you might expect with:

"Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes showed off their Hollywood star power as they attended a prewedding dinner with their closest celebrity freinds..."

It goes on. But the, tucked away in the fourth paragraph is this (I'll include the misprint/typo as it appears in the paper):

"The couple are said to have spent more than £5 million on the lavish wedding and have jetted out his closets friends and colleagues to watch them tie the knot."

What do you think? Genuine mistake?

While you're thinking about it, here's a link to look at. Oh, by the way, it's my birthday in December.

I've got that R Kelly bit from South Park going round my head now...

"And I sing, Tom Cruise, please come out of the closet. Everybody here just wants you to come out of the closet... and then I calm myself down, and I pull out my gun..."
