Good news for David LaChapelle!
The photographer has settled his copyright violation lawsuit against Rihanna for an unspecified amount of money.
In case you forgot, LaChapelle claimed scenes from RiRi's S&M music video were "directly derived from and substantially similar to" eight of his own photographs.
A rep for the photog said "David is happy with the settlement."

Glad to see this was resolved!
Pitbull was reportedly being sued by his babymama Barbara Alba - with whom he has a nine-year-old daughter - because she felt as though the $3,000 she with which he was providing her without any formal court order was not enough, has settled with her once again out of court!

After a year of back and forth and days of negotiations at an El Lay courthouse, it appears that Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva have settled their battle for custody of little Lucia!
Apparently, the enormous amount of money that Oksana wanted didn't happen, but the new agreement covers their daughter's custody, as well as support.

That's a bit surprising.
Sienna Miller has settled her lawsuit against News Corp., owners of the British tabloid News of the World, in which she claimed that the company hacked into her cell phone to receive private information.
The tabloid allegedly hired a private investigator to listen to their calls.
Ewww! Totally shady!
Sienna will receive approximately $160,000 to drop the case.
News Corp. said in a statement:
"We are pleased that we have managed to bring this case to a satisfactory conclusion. Several weeks ago we admitted liability in certain cases and offered a genuine and unreserved apology. We hope to resolve other cases swiftly."
Guess money talk$. Not sure we would have done the same thing, Sienna.

Already? They are settling down FAST!
Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood are currently setting up shop in Ottawa, Canada, where his hockey team, the Senators, are stationed, but the city may became a more a more permanent locale for his new family - if he has it his way!
"I love it here in Ottawa. She likes it, she knows how much I like it, and I want to stay here my whole career if possible. We're both comfortable here. Home is where we are, so let's make this home. There will be lots of traveling. We'll be all over, so it's all good."
They really aren't wasting any time, are they?
How long you think until they're popping out kids! We give it a year!
