Sienna Miller to receive compensation from British tabloid hacking lawsuit
Sienna Miller settled a lawsuit with British tabloid News of the World, which allegedly hacked into her and several celebrities mobile phones, for 10,000 pounds ($164,500) in damages and legal fees on Tuesday, Reuters reports.
The actress reached an agreement in against the British tabloid back in May. News of the World, which is one of the best-selling tabloids in Britain, also admitted liability in the case.
The "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" and "Factory Girl," actress was also granted an injunction preventing any unlawful accessing of her voicemail and publication of her private information.
The tabloid was also forced to also reveal the full details of the intrusion into Miller's privacy. Several of its journalists have been arrested following the revelations.
Back in February, Miller, 29, on made headlines when she and long-time boyfriend Jude Law, 38, broke up after dating on and off for the last few years.
Law and Miller got engaged in December 2004. In mid-2005, the actor was reported to have had an affair with Daisy Wright, the nanny of his three children, whose mother is Sadie Frost. Law made a public apology, saying he was "deeply ashamed and upset" that he hurt Miller and their families.
The two soon broke up months later and got back together in 2006. The actress said the two were trying to work things out. They then split again and Miller reportedly dated actors such as Rhys Ifans and later, Balthazar Getty, who was married at the time. She and Law rekindled their romance in 2009.
