The newspaper confirmed Thursday that a settlement had been reached. /*Jolie*/ and /*Pitt*/ have accepted undisclosed damages.
"When the News of the World failed to publicly retract the allegations and apologize for them - thereby leaving their readers in the dark as to the true position - the couple felt they had no alternative than to sue," the couple's attorney, Keith Schilling, said in a statement. "Today's victory marks the end of the litigation brought by Brad and Angelina."
They did not attend the hearing.
