Actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have accepted undisclosed damages in London's High Court to settle a privacy claim against a British tabloid that had reported they were planning to split.

The celebrity couple began legal action against the News of the World after it reported in January that they had agreed to separate.

The pair argued the newspaper had made false and intrusive allegations in saying that they had planned to divide assets worth 205 million pounds ($320 million) and had made arrangements regarding the custody of their six children.

The newspaper confirmed Thursday that a settlement had been reached, but declined to comment further.

The couple did not attend the hearing.
