Zeta-Jones and Douglas Pay Millions in Hello! Case

Movie couple Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas are facing a gigantic legal bill after a judge ruled they owe $3.4 million in court costs.

The stars share their financial burden with Britain's OK! magazine after it was decided Friday that HELLO! magazine should only pay half - $3.4 million - of the $6.8 million the case cost.

Following a lengthy court battle, in April it was ruled that Hello!'s use of unauthorized photographs taken secretly at the celebrity couple's November 2000 wedding was in breach of commercial confidentiality.

Zeta-Jones and Douglas had already struck a $1.8 million exclusive deal with rival magazine OK! to cover their nuptials.

As a result of that verdict Hello! paid compensation of $25,200 to the Hollywood pair and $1,859,681 to OK!

Hello! lawyer Christopher Hutchings says, "However you look at the figures, the Douglases are going to be hugely out of pocket. Their damages will be more than wiped out."
