Mel Gibson Settles Tire Lawsuit With Former Investor

mel-gibson-settles-tire-lawsuit-web.jpg

This was definitely NOT eco-friendly!

Nader Sherif claims Mel Gibson told him to invest his life savings into an green company, Green Rubber.

Green Rubber recycles tires so it seems like a good idea, right?

He was promised his money would be returned at anytime and that Mel himself would write the check if the company didn't return his loot.

You know where this is going…

Sherif sued and Melly-Mel has relented and settled with the investor.

How much Mel paid Sherif is unknown but we hope it's a lot of green!

Scarlett Johansson is again using her name for charity.

The gorgeous actress has teamed up with lifestyle brand Neff to create beanies for City of Hope.

ScarJo reveals:

I helped create this Neff Beanie with the hope that every purchase might make a cancer patient feel a bit more comfortable during his/her treatments and look cool and be cozy all the while. The beanies are eco friendly too, so they're as nice to the earth as they are to the person wearing them.”

Profits from the eco-friendly, limited edition beanies will go to benefit City of Hope, a leading cancer research, treatment and education center, to help support the fight against cancer.

For every purchase, Neff will donate one beanie to a City of Hope patient or survivor. After 5,000 beanies have been donated, they will donate 10% of each sale giving up to $20,000.

The Neff Hope beanies are being sold on Zappos.com and retail for $25.00 each.
