Elton John and his ex-wife Renate Blauel have settled their legal dispute out of court.
Blauel sued Elton back in June, alleging "repeated and flagrant" breaches of the terms of their divorce agreement in both his memoir Me and bio-pic Rocketman. After she initially sought $4 million, the case has been settled amicably.
A joint statement says, "The parties...have resolved this case, in a way that acknowledges Renate's need for privacy... For her part, Renate acknowledges that Elton has acted in a dignified and respectful way towards her in the last 30 years and has been always happy to help her."
The statement closes with, "They will not be discussing each other, or their marriage, in future and will be making no further comment about the case."
Elton and Renate were married between 1984 and 1988.
