Did they meet him halfway? We may never care know.

The slur-happy Perez Hilton has settled his civil suit against the Black Eyed Peas' punch-happy manager, Liborio Molina. The terms of the deal will remain confidential, though as part of the arrangement, Molina, who has already apologized for the incident, will make a donation to a charity of the gossipmonger's choice.

Hilton alleged battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress last summer after a scuffle broke out over differing opinions on the quality of the Peas' latest—and incidentally Grammy-winning—release, The E.N.D. He was seeking a minimum of $25,000 in damages.

Which will no doubt fund the placement of a lot of cartoon genitalia. So really, everyone wins.

Neither side officially commented on the settlement, though Hilton's attorney said his client was "ecstatic" with the deal.
