Charlotte Church - Charlotte Church Eyes Huge Hacking Payout

Singer Charlotte Church is reportedly set to pocket up to $800,000 (£500,000) from newspaper bosses over the U.K.'s phone hacking scandal.
The Welsh former child star was among a group of celebrities who launched legal action against the News of the World after revelations their cell phone voicemail messages had been intercepted by a private detective working for the now-defunct tabloid.
Other stars - including funnyman Steve Coogan and rocker Pete Doherty - settled with the publication's parent company News Group Newspapers earlier this month (Feb12) but Church was adamant she was holding out for a court showdown.
Now it's emerged Church and her parents, who are also named in the lawsuit, are ready to accept damages and legal costs of between $608,000 (£380,000) and $800,000 (£500,000) to end the legal action. The settlement is due to be rubber-stamped this week (ends24Feb12).
