Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie accepted an undisclosed amount of damages on Thursday after suing a British tabloid newspaper which had claimed they were separating.

In January, the News of the World reported the couple planned to part and had agreed on custody of their six children and the division of their assets estimated by the newspaper to be 205 million pounds ($310 million).

The couple said the claims were false and demanded a retraction of the story and an apology.

Solicitor-advocate Keith Schilling told the High Court in London that News Group Newspapers now accepted that each of the allegations was "false and intrusive," the Press Association reported.

The newspaper agreed to publish an apology and pay the couple costs and damages, which they intend to donate to their charity the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
