Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman accepted a public apology and undisclosed damages Thursday to settle a libel lawsuit against a British newspaper that suggested she had an affair with actor Jude Law.

The actress’ lawyers told the High Court libel hearing in London that, in a March 6 article, the Daily Mail alleged that Kidman had tempted Law to cheat on his wife, actress Sadie Frost, causing the breakdown of their marriage.

Associated Newspapers, editor Paul Dacre and journalist Nicole Lampert accepted that the allegations were untrue and without foundation and apologized for the embarrassment caused to Kidman. They also agreed to pay her legal costs. The amount of damages was not revealed, but news reports said it was substantial.
