Two photo agencies have agreed to pay $113,000 to Hugh Grant, his ex-girlfriend Liz Hurley and her husband for taking photos of them while they were vacationing in the Maldives.
Britain’s High Court says The Big Pictures and Eliot Press Sarl agencies apologized Thursday for using a long lens to violate the trio’s privacy while they were at an island resort in October. The pictures appeared in several newspapers.
Grant, Hurley and her husband, Arun Nayar, have released a statement saying it was “reprehensible” that photos were taken of Hurley’s son playing naked on the beach.
The trio plan to donate the money to a cancer charity.
