Paula Abdul has reached a settlement with the woman who sued her in 2009 after falling in her driveway – but Abdul will NOT have to “cough up” $900,000, contrary to a TMZ report.
Jill Kohl, who took the spill on Abdul’s property, is getting the big payout from insurance companies, not Abdul herself.
“Absolutely no monies of the settlement will be paid by Paula Abdul,” her attorney tells Gossip Cop in a statement.
It continues, “All monies agreed to be paid to Jill Kohl as part of the settlement will be funded by the parties’ respective insurance carriers. While a settlement was reached between the parties in the case, we were confident that she would prevail at trial.”
“The decision to settle the case was a business decision made solely by Ms. Abdul’s insurance carrier,” explains her lawyer.
