Russell Brand wins libel damages from The Sun, pledges donation to the JFT96 campaign
Russell Brand may be a lifelong West Ham fan but he's going to be made very welcome indeed the next time he visits Anfield.
The 38-year-old tweeted:
I got some money suing The S*n who lied about me. I am making a donation to the #JFT96 campaign. A tiny piece of justice.

The Sun, of course, has barely sold on Merseyside since claims it made against Liverpool fans in the aftermath of the Hillsborough tragedy 25 years ago.
Brand sued The Sun on Sunday after it falsely claimed that he had cheated on his girlfriend last year.
