Kanye West, Evel Knievel Settle Lawsuit

Kanye West and Evel Knievel have finally squashed their beef. The two settled a federal lawsuit over the use of the motorcycle stuntman’s image in the video for West’s ‘Touch the Sky,’ off 2005’s ‘Graduation.’

The daredevil was not pleased when he saw “Evel Kanyevel” parody his attempt to jump a rocket-powered motorcycle over a canyon in the music video, which featured actresses Pamela Anderson, Nia Long and Tracee Ellis Ross. The 69-year-old claimed the video’s “vulgar and offensive” images damaged his reputation.

After a meeting of the minds, which reportedly took place at Knievel’s home in Clearwater, Florida, the two sides have reached an agreement they’re both pleased with.

“We settled the lawsuit amicably,” Knievel told the Associated Press. “I was very satisfied and so was he.”
