Brad and Angelina Win Court Case Against British Tabloid
In the case of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie vs News of the World, the court has decided that the British tabloid will not be able to print false allegations without recourse.
In January of 2010, the couple sued the paper for printing a story that claimed they were separating and had even agreed to custody arrangement of their six children. Yesterday, “Brangelina’s” lawyer appeared in London’s High Court stating that the company that publishes News of the World, News Group Newspapers, has admitted their January 24 story, titled “Pitts All Over,” was “false and intrusive”.
The article claimed that the couple had enlisted the services of a lawyer in December of 2009 and agreed to a division of their mutual assets, including custody arrangements. But in court (surprise!) it was learned that the lawyer in question had never even met Brad or Angelina.
They were ordered to pay an undisclosed amount to Brad and Angelina, who weren’t present for the hearing as they’re both on a PR tour for Angelina’s new movie, Salt.
