You may ask why more celebrities don’t sue tabloids. They’re not as bad as the old days, when the covers of Confidential or Hush-Hush would insinuate all sorts of salacious things. Even the National Enquirer has decided to go legit. Hard to find a Jennifer-Aniston-gives-birth-to-alien-monkey story anywhere. Speaking of Jenn, what’s up with Brad Pitt these days?
LONDON – Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie accepted undisclosed damages Thursday in London's High Court to settle a privacy claim against a British tabloid that had reported they were planning to split.

 "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.

English libel laws are stricter, which is why they sued and won. Personally, I'm glad our celebrity  press can engage in fabulation, because otherwise the check-out aisle at Target would be full of utterly factual assertions. But here at PopCrush we tell the truth. Always. Example: it wasn't exactly an alien monkey.
