Dita Von Teese Settles out of Court

dita von teese picturesBurlesque star Dita Von Teese has asked a Los Angeles court to dismiss her lawsuit against a giant swan manufacturer over a malfunctioning stage prop after the item was returned to her fully repaired.

The former wife of Marilyn Manson, real name Heather Sweet, employed the services of Fred Knaff last year (07) to build her a 10 foot (3.05 metres) high swan with a fountainhead in the beak, in which she could perform the act she calls Swan Lake.

But the fountain malfunctioned at her show's debut in Toronto, Canada on 12 November (07) - and she was forced to return the damaged goods for repair.

Knaff reportedly refused to fix it - and Von Teese subsequently filed suit against Knaff's firm in April (08).

But now Von Teese has filed a motion at Los Angeles Superior Court in a bid to have her legal action dismissed, claiming she has settled the dispute out of court.
