Peter Andre secures libel damages over magazine article
Singer and reality TV star Peter Andre has been successful in his claims of libel against a magazine article published about him.
The Now story, which was entitled "Jordan Explodes: 'Tell the Truth Peter!'", suggested he was lying when he portrayed himself as a loving father and husband.
In a recent court hearing, a legal representative for the entertainer - who rose to fame in the UK with his hit single Mysterious Girl - said that the piece claimed he may have been responsible for two accidents suffered by Katie Price's disabled son Harvey.
The amount secured by Andre has not been divulged but the 36-year-old is said to be pleased that Now has accepted the story, which was published in July, was not true.
He remarked: "I take my responsibilities very seriously. I would never do anything to hurt my children, whom I love very much."
Andre and former spouse Price were granted a divorce last month.
