Hitting Britney Spears one more time paid off.
The chart topper has settled a lawsuit brought against her by a paparazzo whose foot she ran over with her car outside a Beverly Hills medical building in 2007 (not to be confused with the feet she squished that year belonging to a sheriff's deputy and a different shutterbug), according to paperwork filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
The terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but Ricardo Mendoza, who was pounding the pavement when the accident occurred, had been seeking nearly $230,000 in damages and medical expenses.
Mendoza sued in May for an unspecified amount, then followed up with an amended complaint last month.
Perhaps it was the big round zeros that finally caught Britney's lawyers' attention.
Attorney Benjamin C. Alvarez's rebuttal papers had described Mendoza as a "self-serving, profit-hungry paparazzo" who "positioned and placed himself in the roadway in front of Ms. Spears' vehicle."
We're glad Britney's apparent foot fetish is behind her. It's so much more fun critiquing her sartorial choices in our Fashion Spotlight.
