According to authorities, the Star Trek actor thought his car was parked when it was actually in neutral, as it rolled down his driveway and struck him. Although a recall notice went out on May 14, 2016 addressing the aforementioned problem, Yelchin had not gotten his car fixed yet.

On Tuesday, per TMZ, the thespian's family settled their lawsuit with auto company Fiat Chrysler, though the details are confidential.

Months after the tragedy, the dealership said the accident was caused by Anton's "misuse, misapplication or damage" of the vehicle.

The starlet spoke to People, confirming the tragic death of her mother in a statement:

"It is with a heavy heart that I share the news my mother, Rita Owens passed away today. Anyone that has ever met her knows what a bright light she was on this earth.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!

Understandably, Vanessa Trump was a little less than pleased after finding out her husband Donald Trump Jr. had strayed from their marriage. As we EXCLUSIVELY reported, Donald Trump's son and Aubrey O'Day embarked on an extramarital affair after they met on the set of Celebrity Apprentice in 2011-2012. At the time, Vanessa and Don Jr. shared daughter Kai, now 10, and sons Donald Trump III, 9, and Tristan, 6. They later welcomed Spencer, 5, and Chloe, 3.

As we reported, the "relationship" between the businessman and the former Danity Kane member ended in March 2012 when Vanessa discovered an email chain between the two. We think it's important to note that Vanessa was pregnant at the time.
