Daredevil And Rapper Settle Lawsuit

Posted:

According to a recent report a lawsuit filed against the rapper Kanye West by Evel Knievel, the well known daredevil, has been settled amicably, although details of the settlement have been kept quiet by both of the parties involved.

The daredevil Knievel filed his lawsuit against the rap star and his record company last year after a trademarked image of Knievel was used in a music video in 2006. In the video West takes on the persona of a character called “Evel Kanyevel” and tries to attempt a daredevil stunt.

According to attorneys for the rap star the use of the image was covered by the first amendment, as the video was nothing more that satire. However, Knievel had described the use of the images in the video as “vulgar and offensive”.

However, reports claim that following a visit to the daredevil’s Florida condo, Kanye West has reached an amicable settlement with Knievel. In fact, Knievel described West as a gentleman and a wonderful guy following the settlement talks, and also expressed his condolences over West’s recently deceased mother.
