British singer Charlotte Church will see her bank account expand by $800,000 courtesy of the News of the World phone hacking scandal.
Church was among a group of celebrities who launched legal action against the long-running paper after it was revealed that their personal voicemails were hacked into by a private detective who was working on behalf of the now shuttered paper.
While other stars settled, Church chose to pursue the matter in the courts. Smart move on her part, since she and her parents are preparing to accept between $600,000 and $800,000 in damages and legal fees. Word is that she just settled the case.
