*San Diego Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman and reality TV starlet Tila Tequila have settled their lawsuits that had been filed against each other, reports the Associated Press.
Merriman was never charged with a crime, but Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, filed a lawsuit that alleged the linebacker choked her. The athlete, in turn, sued for international interference with a contract, claiming the controversy held up a T-shirt business he was negotiating with Wal-Mart.
Tequila’s lawyer Cyrus Nownejad said Tuesday he won’t disclose terms of the settlement. Neither will Merriman’s attorney Andrew Skale, who said the dispute was resolved amicably.
