Kim Kardashian has one less story floating around to worry about.
The E! star is "very happy to announce that she has reached a settlement of her claims against Jonathan Jaxson," her attorney, Todd Wilson, said in a statement to E! News. Jackson, a blogger who identified himself last year as Kardashian's former publicist, had told various media outlets that her short-lived relationship with Kris Humphries was staged for the cameras.
"As part of the confidential settlement," Wilson continued, "Mr. Jaxson has issued a public apology to Kim. Kim is extremely pleased with the outcome of the matter."
So, what did his mea culpa entail?
"I wanted to apologize publicly to Kim Kardashian for any confusion that I may have caused by the personal statements I made recently regarding Kim Kardashian," Jaxson wrote on his blog.
"I would like to further clarify that I did not have any first hand knowledge of Kim's relationship with Kris. Any statement I made regarding Kim and her marriage was my opinion only and was not intended to imply first hand knowledge of Kim's thoughts and feelings."
Sources told E! News in November that Jaxson was indeed just a blogger "she met three times" as opposed to her former publicist.
Kardashian was "a client and someone I worked with behind the scenes," Jaxson told us at the time. "I have all the proof and I feel there is no need to further justify this."
Well, everyone's entitled to his opinion.
