Minnelli Settles Chauffeur Lawsuit
LIZA MINNELLI has settled a lawsuit from a former chauffeur who accused the star of sexual harassment.
M’hammed Soumayah, who also worked as Minnelli 's bodyguard, filed suit against the Cabaret star in 2004 at New York's Manhattan Supreme Court, alleging he had suffered violent outbursts at the hands of the star.
The papers also alleged he had been forced to "engage in sexual relations" with the 63 year old.
Minnelli denied the claims and counter-sued Soumayah, accusing him of threatening her after she cut his $238,000 (£158,000) a year salary.
Now the star, who was married to ex-husband David Gest at the time of the lawsuit, has settled the dispute out of court, according to the New York Daily News.
The details of the settlement have not been revealed.
