Hugh Grant & Liz Hurley, BFF's Win Lawsuit (Photos)
Hugh Grant, his ex-girlfriend Liz Hurley and her husband Arun Nayar traveled to an island resort in the Maldives in October 2007. While enjoying their tropical vacation, the trio and Hurley's 5 year old son Damian Bing were photographed with long lens camera equipment and the photos ended up in several newspapers.
The photos showed Hurley's young son running naked on the beach. The boys father is multi-millionaire film producer Stephen Bing. Because the trio thought it was "reprehensible" that these private photos were released for public viewing, they filed suit against The Big Pictures and Eliot Press Sarl.
The two agencies have agreed to pay $113,000 to the trio and they have issued a public apology. The trio plan to donate the money to charity. Grant has won similar lawsuits in 1995 and 2007 against News (UK) Ltd, Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday.
Grant and Hurley had a 13 year relationship that spanned 1987-2000. Their parting was amicable and they remain close friends who vacation together. By the way, young Damian Bing is Grant's godson. We liken the arrangement between these close friends to that of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. Very rare indeed.
