BRAD PITT and Angelina Jolie have won a case against the News of the World over claims the paper made about the couple separating.

The paper, which settled for an undisclosed amount, admitted that it had made “false and intrusive” allegations about the couple. Jolie and Pitt were absent from the hearing, which took place in London’s High Court.

The actors’ suit was based on the misuse of private information and breach of the 1998 Data Protection Act. It related to a front page story from January of this year (headlined “Pitts all over”) that detailed false information about the couple separating and splitting their assets.

The court also received a statement from Schillings Lawyers, which said their employee Sorrell Trope – who was identified as the couple’s divorce lawyer – had never even met the Jolie-Pitts.

Trope wrote: “I have never met… your clients or had any involvement with either of them. The foregoing is true with respect to all other members of this firm.”

The sum that the couple received through damages will be donated to their charity, the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
