Paula Abdul has agreed to pay $900,000 damages to an injured woman
The former `X Factor` judge was sued in 2009 by Jill Kohl, who alleged she fell over in the grounds of her Los Angeles home during taping of the former pop singer`s reality TV show `Hey Paula`, and they have now reached a settlement.
As well as the $900,000 she will receive from Paula, Jill has also agreed an additional $100,000 damages from the company who made the show, her lawyer Robert Rodriguez Clayton told TMZ.com.
In her lawsuit - which was filed in March 2009, Jill alleged she fell over because the driveway "was in a dangerous and defective condition".
The news comes just weeks after Paula was axed as a judge on the US `X Factor` after just one season.
Despite her upset, Paula vowed at the time to stay friends with show supremo Simon Cowell, who she previously worked with on `American Idol`.
She said: "Yes, it`s true; I won`t be returning to `The X Factor` next season. I`ve learned through my longevity in this industry that business decisions often times override personal considerations. Simon and I, along with Fox and [production company] Fremantle, have been communicating about this for a while now, and I have absolute understanding of the situation.
"Simon is, and will remain a dear friend of mine and I`ve treasured my experience working this past season with my extended family at Fox and Fremantle.
"I want nothing more than for The X Factor to exceed ALL of their wildest dreams. This truly has been a blessing and I am most grateful."
