Tabloid Pays Brangelina Undisclosed Settlement For Bogus Rumors; Money Donated to Charity

by at . Comments

Brangelina is awesome. We've said it before and will say it again.

While Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been making the rounds - her Salt premiere, Comic-Con - their attorneys have fought the good fight against false rumors.

No shortage of those to be found regarding the couple, either.

This morning, they accepted an undisclosed settlement (earmarked for charity, of course) from the UK's News of the World for "false and intrusive allegations."

You mean the weekly deluge of Brangelina gossip isn't all true?!? We're stunned. Five-plus years after Angelina stole Brad, it's hard to take any story seriously.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have another reason to smile.

The duo called in the legal dogs after a story in January claimed the pair had met with a Los Angeles divorce lawyer to quietly divide their assets, hash out a custody deal and financially provide for their six children in a "messy separation."

Not the case. And the tabloid paid a heavy price.

While the newspaper removed from the offending celebrity gossip article, it refused to acknowledge that the printed information was untrue until now.

"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," their attorney, Keith Schilling, said.
