Don't poke the tiger in Nicolas Cage!
The Ghost Rider star finally settled his lawsuit with the Daily Mail, and it seems he really hit them with his penance!
After the outlet accused the actor of being late on his taxes, Nic Peggy Sued for defamation.
The settlement apparently includes a retraction, an apology, AND an undisclosed sum for damages!
Nic's lawyer Paul Tweed issued a statement on behalf of his client. He said:
"My client has secured a complete vindication of his reputation following the publication of a categoric retraction by the MailOnline for what they immediately acknowledged was a completely unfounded and defamatory allegation of tax evasion."
Thanks to the damages, it looks like someone is going to be a little early on Next year's tax return! Cha-ching!
