Kudrow argued that she had already paid Mr Howard more than $11m (€8m) before they parted ways in 2007.

City News Service said evidence during the trial indicated that Kudrow, who starred on Friends from 1994 to 2004, was earning more than $1m an episode by the end of the show’s run.

Mr Howard worked with Kudrow for 16 years, beginning in 1991.
