PRIMAL SCREAM singer BOBBY GILLESPIE has been awarded damages from the NEWS OF THE WORLD after claims by the newspaper that he had an affair with supermodel KATE MOSS.
The publication apologised for the “distress and injury” caused to Gillespie and fiancée Katy England, and agreed not to repeat the allegations.
The article, with the headline ‘It Moss Be Love’, wrongly claimed that Moss was comforting Gillespie after a split with England.
According to MediaGuardian.co.uk, Gillespie and England’s solicitor Gerrard Tyrrell said: “The claimants are in fact happily engaged and living together. The claimants are both good and longstanding friends of Kate Moss and are both godparents to her daughter.”
The News Of The World said that it accepted the allegations against Gillespie and England were wrong and agreed to pay damages and legal costs to the couple.
