Rihanna settled her legal battle with photographer David LaChapelle after the photographer accused her of copying his work and images in her sexually themed "S&M" video.
LaChapelle, who said that the suit was not personal and even labeled himself a Rihanna fan, accused the singer's video of featuring scenes which were "directly derived" from some of his shots.
RiRi settled for an undisclosed sum, avoiding trial.
LaChapelle's publicist Jaret Keller confirmed the settlement, saying "David is happy with the settlement."
