Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie accepted an undisclosed amount of damages on Thursday after suing a British tabloid newspaper which had claimed they were separating.
In January, the News of the World reported the couple planned to part and had agreed on custody of their six children and the division of their assets estimated by the newspaper to be 205 million pounds ($310 million).
The couple said the claims were false and demanded a retraction of the story and an apology.
Solicitor-advocate Keith Schilling told the High Court in London that News Group Newspapers now accepted that each of the allegations was “false and intrusive,” the Press Association reported.
The newspaper agreed to publish an apology and pay the couple costs and damages, which they intend to donate to their charity the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

    Good for them! It’s sad that people-tabloids always project or want bad things to happens. That almost like saying, if we keep sayiing it ;it must be true. Or to wish so badly to make it happen. Shame on all of them. Karma is real- never wish ill will on anyone!!
    I’m happy for Brad and Angie that they won this case!!It proves to the tabloids, that they can’t print garbage!!!

    It seems when people do good things, like have a family, as large as theirs, and seem to truly love each other …. everyone wants to stomp on it and ruin it. I will celebrate my 18th wedding anniversary and have 2 beautiful children. If financially we could afford it, I would have just as many children as they do. They can afford it, leave them be! Good for them for the law suit and the donation to charity! If anything they had to do it for their children … they know the truth! Best wishes .. I have my own Brad .. and having a family with the right “man” is awesome!
