Nicole Narain and Colin Farrell in happier times

Colin Farrell and former girlfriend Nicole Narain have reached "an amicable settlement" in their legal dispute over a sex tape they made together in 2003, according to her lawyer.
"We were able to completely resolve it. The terms are confidential," Narain's attorney, Leodis Matthews, told the New York Daily News.
Last year, Farrell accused Narain of trying to distribute the tape through an intermediary. He sought general and compensatory damages and demanded that all copies of the tape be returned to him.
The settlement was hammered out in a lengthy session on Easter Sunday and marked the first time the actor and the onetime Playboy playmate had met face to face since the controversy over the tape began, the Daily News reports.
Under grounds that Farrell and Narain had not agreed to keep the 14-minute tape private, Narain initially sought a dismissal of Farrell's suit. She also alleged that she had the right to reproduce, market and distribute it under federal copyright law.
The settlement between the two does not resolve Farrell's ongoing lawsuit against the Internet Commerce Group (ICG), which had planned to distribute the tape. The two sides are due to meet in Los Angeles Superior Court on July 21, says the Daily News.
