Donald Trump and Univision have reached a settlement in their highly-publicized lawsuit.

After Trump made several derogatory comments about Mexican immigrants during his early campaign days last year, the Spanish broadcasting company decided not to broadcast bot the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants (both owned by Trump).

Trump responded to Univision's decision by filing a lawsuit in June 2015 and suing the company for $500 million, alleging breach of contract.

While the terms of their agreement remain confidential, Univision released a statement on Thursday saying they are "pleased" to have settled the litigation

The statement also includes a comment from Trump: "I have known Univision's President and CEO, Randy Falco, for more than 20 years and I'm glad we are able to put these differences behind us." 

Falco responded, adding, "I have known Donald Trump for many years in both a personal and professional capacity, and we are pleased to settle this matter and move forward."

In other Trump news, Adele recently gave him a major stamp of denial.

The Grammy winner is preventing the candidate from using any of her music on his continued campaign trail. Trump had been playing "Rolling in the Deep" and "Skyfall" at various events to rev up the crowd, but that will soon come to an end as a rep for the famous singer told E! News recently, "Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning."

And she's not alone! Steven Tyler also denied Trump permission to use his music.

According to court documents obtained by E! News, the Aerosmith singer requested the presidential hopeful to stop playing the songs.

"Trump for President does not have our client's permission to use Dream On' or any of our client's other music in connection with the campaign because it gives the false impression that [Tyler] is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump's presidential bid," the cease and desist letter stated.
