London (ANI): Jordan a.k.a. Katie Price and her husband Peter Andre have won a public apology and damages over a newspaper story, which claimed that the couple were bad, uncaring parents. The celebrity couple took legal action against the News of the World over an article, which according to their solicitor Mike Brookes, portrayed them as "shocking and uncaring parents who put their own needs above those of their children".
Brookes told the court the article showed them as parents who "are so reckless they even endanger their children's health and welfare." Following the successful verdict, News Of The World apologised and said it now accepted the couple were decent and responsible parents who loved and cared deeply about their children.
Although the amount they were awarded wasn't specified, the couple revealed they're donating half to the NSPCC and charity Vision and the rest would be put into a trust fund for their kids Junior, Princess Tiaami and Harvey. "Anyone who has kids can imagine how it would feel to be accused publicly of being bad parents," the Daily Star quoted Jordan, as saying. "Pete and I love our kids and would do anything for them. We came here today to see that justice was done and that our names were cleared," she added.
