Charlotte Church has settled her damages claim against a newspaper which wrote a story saying she proposed to boyfriend Jonathan Powell during a boozy pub karaoke night.
The 26-year-old singer and mother-of-two was not at London's High Court for the settlement, but received an apology from The People newspaper and undisclosed damages.
Solicitor Mike Brookes, acting on behalf of Church, told the court she brought the claim because the defamatory allegation hurt her and caused her distress and embarrassment with her friends and family - not least Mr Powell.
The article falsely claimed that she had publicly proposed to her boyfriend in a "boozy pub karaoke night" in Cardiff and that they then "celebrated into the early hours" with a bottle of champagne each and that Church had to be "helped" to the taxi by a number of friends.
The article also included quotes which were said to be from anonymous friends and comments attributed to Church and Powell.
MGN Limited apologised for the story in paper in November, which it accepted was completely untrue and should not have been published, and also agreed to pay Church's reasonable legal fees.
Church recently settled another claim against News Group Newspapers after her phone was hacked.
