Damages for Cheryl husband

By Jan Colley

The husband of X Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (31) has accepted undisclosed privacy damages over a magazine article which speculated about their "secret" wedding.

Businessman Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini, who married the singer in July, brought proceedings for invasion of privacy and breach of the Data Protection Act 1998 at London's High Court against Bauer Consumer Media Ltd, publisher of Heat magazine.

His solicitor said the distress caused by the article was compounded by the fact that Mr Fernandez-Versini had sought to avoid the media's glare.

The article also contained inaccuracies which the magazine did not put to him in advance of publication.
