A Statement in Open Court [pdf] was read in today in the High Court before Mr Justice Dingemans in the privacy case of Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini v. Bauer Consumer Media Limited. Heat magazine apologised and agreed to pay damages and costs.

The judge was told that Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini, the husband of the X-Factor judge formerly known as Cheryl Cole, had accepted damages for the invasion of his privacy and for breach of the Data Protection Act 1998 in relation to a claim brought against the publishers of “Heat” magazine.

The Court heard that in August 2014, heat’s cover story referred to the Claimant and his wife and there was then a four page article containing speculation and inaccuracies and which “amounted to an unjustified intrusion into his private and family life”.
