Singer Lily Allen has been awarded an undisclosed sum of damages after taking legal action against a British newspaper group. The "Smile" singer filed suit against the Daily Mail's parent company Associated Newspapers in November 2010 for publishing unauthorized pictures of her English country home.

Allen, who originally demanded between $80,000 and $160,000 in damages, was granted an undisclosed sum by the U.K. High Court on Monday, March 21. The star's legal fees will be taken care of as part of the settlement and she'll own the rights to the photos, reports The Guardian.

According to legal papers, the pop star claims she was left with "considerable distress and anxiety" after snaps of the retreat were posted on the Daily Mail's website in September 2010, making her more vulnerable to stalkers and fans.
