Britney Spears Settles in Paparazzi Foot-Squishing Case

Britney Spears Settles in Paparazzi Foot-Squishing Case-photo

Britney Spears received a very expensive driving lesson on Monday.

E! Online reports that the "Womanizer" singer has settled a lawsuit brought against her by paparazzo Ricardo Mendoza, who maintains that Brit-Brit ran over his foot with her car outside a Beverly Hills medical building in 2007.

The amount of the settlement was not disclosed, but Mendoza had been asking for $230,000 in damages and medical expenses.

In rebuttal papers filed in the case, Spears' attorney Benjamin C. Alvarez characterized Mendoza as a "self-serving, profit-hungry paparazzo" who "positioned and placed himself in the roadway in front of Ms. Spears' vehicle."

Well, that's one way to make a living in this troubled economy.

Let us know in the comments section: Do you think Britney should have settled?

    Are you kidding? They crowd around her car, not letting her move and then when she tries to drive forward, she runs over one pap's foot which shouldn't be there in the first place. Completely stupid. Now all the paps will want their feet run over! Time for reform of this industry. www.paparazzi-reform.org so true! effing parasites... this was way too easy for the paprazzo/i!
