Hollywood superstars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have accepted undisclosed damages to settle their privacy action over claims that they were separating.

The couple were not at London’s High Court on Thursday to hear solicitor-advocate Keith Schilling tell Mr Justice Eady that News Group Newspapers now accepted that each of the allegations was “false and intrusive”.

The actors brought an action for misuse of private information and breach of the 1998 Data Protection Act over a January front page story in the News of the World, “Pitts all over”, which also appeared online.

Mr Schilling said the newspaper, whose case was that it acted in good faith, had agreed to publish an apology and pay the couple their costs and damages, which they intended to donate to the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
