Hello, Zeta brawl on again



HELLO! magazine will appeal over its courtroom clash with Hollywood couple Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas, which left the celebrity magazine facing a six figure bill.

The six-week hearing last year over snatched pictures of the couple's New York wedding became one of the most publicised cases at London's High Court.

Zeta Jones, 34, told how she had felt "devastated, shocked and appalled" when she realised that paparazzi had gatecrashed her wedding at the Plaza Hotel in November 2000.

She and her 59-year-old husband had signed an exclusive £1 million ($2.45 million) deal with OK! Magazine for pictures after turning down a higher offer from Hello!.

Zeta Jones said she felt "violated" when Hello! published unauthorised photographs, which she claimed were "sleazy and unflattering".


Justice Lindsay ruled Hello! breached the couple's rights of confidence but they had no claim of invasion of privacy.

He awarded the couple a total of £14,600 but OK! won £1,033,156.
