LeAnn Rimes has settled her lawsuit against her former co-manager, Lyle Walker, Billboard Bulletin reports. Terms and conditions of the settlement are sealed by a confidentiality agreement.
Rimes and her mother, Belinda Rimes, filed suit last May against Walker and Wilbur Rimes, the singer’s father and former co-manager and producer, claiming they had cheated the singer out of at least $7 million over the past five years. Rimes’ suit against her father is ongoing, as is his countersuit against her company, LeAnn Rimes Entertainment Inc.
Of the settlement, Rimes attorney J. Cary Gray says, “We’re very happy with the way it was resolved.” Walker attorney Keith Trent says his client is pleased that the settlement is “resolved and behind him.”
As previously reported, Rimes is planning to appeal a Nashville judge’s ruling that she not be let out of a contract she signed with Curb Records when she was 12.
