Jus and Jess ‘false story’ suit set­tled

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

HOL­LY­WOOD cou­ple Justin Tim­ber­lake and Jessica Biel have set­tled a law­suit against a top celebrity mag­a­zine over pic­tures it pub­lished of him at a party in a Paris club.

The singer, 33, and ac­tress, 32, ( above) lodged a defama­tion claim in the courts in Ire­land against the pub­lish­ers of Heat over an ar­ti­cle, photographs and quotes at­trib­uted to To­tal Re­call ac­tress Biel.

The High Court in Dublin heard the ar­ti­cle was based on an un­founded re­port re­gard­ing Tim­ber­lake’s al­leged be­hav­iour at a birth­day party after one of his shows.

At a brief hear­ing, lawyers for the cou­ple con­firmed a set­tle­ment had been reached and a an un­re­served apol­ogy is­sued.

The cou­ple’s lawyer read a brief state­ment out­side the Court but de­clined to di­vulge any de­tails of a fi­nan­cial set­tle­ment.

He said: “Justin Tim­ber­lake and Jessica Biel are very sat­is­fied with this cat­e­goric re­trac­tion of what was a false and un­founded story.”
