The club promoter launched legal action against Reveal publisher the National Magazine Company Ltd over the printing three-page spread that included private details about his French childhood, late mother, relationship with the X Factor judge and their personal finances in July.
The High Court judge heard from his solicitor, Callum Galbraith,that he had no desire to be known as a public figure, despite his marriage to the famous pop singer.
"Publicity was the inevitable, but avoidable, consequence for the claimant in so far as Reveal's article is concerned," Galbraith said.
"Despite describing the article as the product of an investigation, at its core was a combination of speculation, gossip and private information.
"As Reveal now accepts, the article constituted an unjustifiable and unnecessary intrusion into the claimant's private and family life.

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini best quotes
1/15 On relating to Prince Harry:
"I love Prince Harry. Good looking and a bit of a rebel. Me and his dad are as thick as thieves and I knew Harry before I knew his dad so we've met a few times. I think he's amazing. And I think you can relate to him because he's made mistakes. He's cool."
2/15 On her allegedly unattractive feet:
"Don't show my feet, Don't put the camera on my feet. A lot of people have foot fetishes, but they wouldn't have them over mine. They're dainty, they're a size 3, but there's nothing pretty about them."
3/15 On gender:
"I am a woman and I like sex."

4/15 On Simon Cowell:
"Simon is the most charismatic man I've ever met -- it's like he's trancing you or something. It's actually quite scary."
5/15 On being 'urban':
"I still am very street - I just have nicer clothes. I'm not ashamed of that."
6/15 On her foes:
"If I could be good at any sport, it'd be javelin. I know a few people I would love to throw a spear at."
7/15 On her famous up-dos:
"I love that style. I felt really glamorous with it. The bigger the better I always say, the higher the hair, the closer to heaven."
8/15 On fighting:
"If someone attacked a Tweedy, we were taught to defend ourselves."
9/15 On her infamous bottom tattoo:
"It was in the thousands, probably the cost of a small car. He's an exceptional artist and he was worth it."
10/15 On what men want (apparently):
“As long as your hair's looking good and you've got a nice amount of make-up on. [In the bedroom] you've just got to throw your man on the bed and hop on! I think most men prefer to hear little breaths rather than big screams.”
11/15 On breast enhancement speculation:
“It's not my fault they're pert.”
12/15 On her X Factor sacking:
“Now I can say that Simon was right to get rid of me. “I wasn't well in the head when that was going on, so it wasn't going to work. But he wasn't right not to tell me to my face.”
13/15 On former husband Ashley Cole's culinary skills:
“He couldn't even cook toast.”
14/15 On her style:
'I don't think I'm a style icon, not at all. Sometimes I just want to rock out in me scruffs and me Uggs. You know, a really comfy old tracksuit with maybe a dollop of ketchup down the front.'
15/15 On, um, water:
"You can't hold on to water. It fills you up but never stays. It's only good to wash away, today."
"The only reason for it being published at all was the fame and notoriety of the claimant's wife which is, of course, no justification for a publication that in truth should never have been made. Reveal now accepts this."
Neither Fernandez-Versini or his wife were present at the hearing, and the sum of damages awarded to him has not been disclosed.
Aimee Nisbet, the solicitor acting on behalf of Reveal magazine, agreed not to republish the article or any such feature on the couple in the future.
Reveal also apologised for any distress or hurt it had caused.
