Default Kanye West and Evel Knievel Resolve "Touch the Sky" Lawsuit

Quote:


Hip-Hop star Kanye West and legendary stuntman Craig "Evel" Knievel have amicably resolved and dismissed a lawsuit over Westís hit video "Touch The Sky" it was announced today (November 27).

Knievel took offense to the "Touch The Sky" video, which featured West as a fictional stuntman named "Evel Kanyevel" and sued the rapper in December of 2006.

The single was featured on Westís Grammy Award winning 2005 album Late Registration.

The "Touch the Sky" video featured a reenactment of Evel Knievelís legendary failed jump over the Snake River Canyon in Wyoming in 1974.

Knievel filed a multimillion dollar lawsuit, which claimed West tarnished his image by using "vulgar, sexual and racially questionable content" by reenacting the video, which also starred Pamela Anderson Lee.

The pair entered into mediation in July of 2007 and recently met at Knievelís home in Tampa, Florida, where they put the lawsuit to rest.

The case, Knievel and K and K Promotions, Inc. v. West, Roc-A-Fella Records, LLC, Chris Milk and AOL LLC, has been completely dismissed.
