A lawsuit filed by Donald Trump over the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants has been settled. Variety reports that Trump and Univision settled the suit that was filed after a highly public fight over Trump’s remarks about Mexican immigrants and Univision’s decision to drop the pageants, in which Trump was then a part-owner.
“Details of the settlement were not disclosed,” Variety reports. “Univision had just signed a five-year deal with the Miss Universe Organization for U.S. Spanish-language TV rights to the beauty pageants when Trump, now the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination, stirred outrage by asserting that many undocumented Mexican immigrants were ‘rapists.’”
After Univision scrapped the telecasts, Trump sued for $500 million. Among the suit’s claims, Variety notes, is one that the decision was influenced by political interference from one of the network’s owners, Democratic fundraiser Haim Saban.
