    Colin's Sex Tape Saga Settled

    Colin Farrell has succeeded in keeping his parts private.

    The actor and his former girlfriend, Nicole Narain, reached an amicable settlement in their legal battle over a sex tape they made together three years ago, her lawyer said.

    "We were able to completely resolve it. The terms are confidential," Narain's attorney, Leodis Matthews, told the New York Daily News.

    Farrell sued Narain, a onetime Playboy Playmate, last year, accusing her of trying to peddle the tape through a third party, despite a prior agreement that the footage was for private viewing only. He demanded general and compensatory damages, as well as the return of all copies of the tape to his possession.

    A judge subsequently issued an injunction blocking Narain from distributing the tape, but that didn't stop footage culled from the mattress romp from making a brief online appearance in January.

    Evidently a lot less modest than her ex about their X-rated escapades, Narain filed a motion asking that Farrell's lawsuit against her be dismissed, clearing the way for her to sell the tape.

    However, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle rejected Narain's request last month, ruling that there was enough evidence behind Farrell's claim for the matter to go to trial.

    Per the Daily News, Farrell, Narain and their respective lawyers spent several hours together on Easter Sunday hammering out the terms of the settlement. It was reportedly the first time that the former couple had been reunited since the sex tape surfaced last year.

    They were joined by Phoenix-based porn agent David Hans Schmidt (aka the "Sultan of Sleaze," a key figure in the brokering of numerous celebrity sex tapes) and representatives from Internet Commerce Group (ICG), who had hoped to sell the tape together.

    Farrell is pursuing his lawsuit against ICG, with whom Narain allegedly signed a seven-figure contract to release the tape.

    The trial in the matter is scheduled to begin July 21 in Los Angeles Superior Court.
