Three years after Katie Price launched an estimated £250,000 damages claim against ex husband Peter Andre and former manager Claire Powell, the parties have come to a settlement agreement.

In March 2012 Katie Price filed high court papers, alleging Peter Andre and his representatives were responsible for a smear campaign against her - including the misuse of private information, something they both denied.

The battle continued for three years, and was due for a 10 day hearing in January 2016.

But today the parties came to a confidential settlement, meaning the case will not go to trial.

Katie Price’s counsel, Heather Rogers QC, told the judge Mr. Justice Dingemans that the case was to remain confidential, and the mother-of-five agreed to pay Claire and her company Can Associates £75,000 towards their costs and Peter £75,000 towards his costs.

Approving the settlement, the judge said the legal costs “might be considered disproportionate” and said it was “very unfortunate” it was not subjected to cost management from the start.

Peter Andre and Katie Price were not present at the hearing today.
