Singer/songwriter Jackson Browne is demanding that the TBS Superstation not rebroadcast "America's Prince: The John F. Kennedy Jr. Story" until scenes that he says defame him are deleted. The movie, which premiered Sunday on the cable station, shows Kennedy rescuing actress Daryl Hannah after Browne allegedly beat her up. Hannah is the former girlfriend of both Browne, 54, and Kennedy, who died in a plane crash in 1999 at 38.

"Mr. Browne has never assaulted Daryl Hannah," Browne's publicist said today (Jan. 16). "Ms. Hannah never filed a police report claiming such an assault and Mr. Browne was never arrested for or charged with such an assault."

Browne's attorney, Lawrence Iser, demanded yesterday that TBS halt future broadcasts of the movie until "false and defamatory" scenes are removed. A spokesperson with Atlanta-based TBS Superstation did not immediately return a message for comment.
