Legal battles don't seem to end with reality TV star Kim Kardashian. But looks like there is one less case to worry about. Kim Kardashian has settled a lawsuit with clothing company Old Navy, as the star claimed that the brand used a lookalike of her in one of its adverts last year. The lawsuit was dismissed in Los Angeles today as the company agreed to pay the cover girl an undisclosed amount based on her claims.
The exact terms of the settlement haven't been disclosed as they weren't filed in the court as both the parties are satisfied with the outcome. Kim's lawyer Gary Hecker said: "The lawsuit was resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties."
Kim last year sued the clothing brand for unspecified damages somewhere amounting between $US15million - $US20 million. The 31-year-old star was unhappy over the company's use of the model, Melissa Molinaro, who Kim said resembled her, in a commercial entitled Super C-U-T-E, because she thought it would confuse some consumers about her actual endorsements. But an attorney for Old Navy claimed at a January hearing that Melissa - who is also a singer as well as model - is famous in her own right. Melissa is said to have been dating Kim's ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush at the time.
