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.”
