Woody Allen Settles

| Filed under: Legal Matters

They've reached an agreement.

We mentioned earlier that Woody Allen is suing American Apparel over using his image in advertisments without his permission. The original lawsuit was for $10 million and the case finally went to trial this morning.

And now it's all over.

Seems that Woody caved against the people over at Los Angeles-based clothing manufacturer and agreed to settle the matter for half of his original asking price. Allen's reps are saying that American Apparel has agreed to settle his lawsuit for $5 million.

Kind of a let down actually. We were ready for this to be drawn out for awhile.

Allen should donate the $5 mill to charity!

    Does anyone on the planet really give a flying f about Woody Allen? Okay, maybe the brainless Hollywood types who don't care what a perv he once was. And who would want to see a likeness of him…anywhere??

    Bitch is lame

    Dov Charney is a fraudulent rotter. HE should donate 10 Millions to charity, not Woody Allen!

    nice of you to decide what he should do with his money. How much of your money do you donate?

    No Allen should keep the 5 million these people made off of his image, he worked for his fame. Why the fuck would he even consider donating it after all his legal fees?

    YEA WHY DOESNT HE SETTLE A PRISON SENTENCE FOR IMPREGNATING AN UNDERAGE FEMALE.

    Good for Woody Allen for standing up to American Apparel and their unethical behavior. The owner of the company is a slimy dirtbag; he has so many legal fees to manage already (on charges of sexual harassment and even RAPE from his employees) that he barely makes a profit as it is. Great clothes, disgusting human being behind them.

    He shouldn't give a DIME to charity! His name is a commodity that HE owns and he has the right to make a profit from it's (authorized or otherwise) use. Don't should on people!

    Woody Allen is a greedy guy. He 100% better give the settlement to charity because the rumor for a while was that Dov was going to offer a donation to NYU Film School in exchange for Woody dropping the case. Look, AA made a joke, maybe not everyone (or anyone) got it but that's the benefit of living in a free country. There was no "calculating" attempt to steal his image like he said in his statement.

    In my opinion, good thing there was an insurance company in the middle because both Woody and American Apparel walked away ok from this. And at US citizens, we don't have to worry about any bad legal precedents being set by a court ruling.

    Just don't "Take THe Money and Run" Woodman!

    Why does the whole thing seem like a scheme that satisfies the needs of both parties?

    Fuck American Apparel and their bullshit overrated clothes. The quality sucks and everyone has the same fucking stupid solid color sweater with the white draw strings. Their ad campaigns are always just gross and their models look like prostitutes… oh wait they are.

    So let me get this straight, American Apparel have agreed to pay Woody Allen $5m in damages and the spin you put on the story is that Woody Allen has "caved in". Sounds to me like it was American Apparel who caved in.

    Woody Allen should put some money into a fund for SEXUALLY ABUSED children in need of aftercare…he is a sick freaking pedo….his wife is just as twisted…the sight of this man makes me want to vomit…I wish you wouldn't post anything about him ever.
