The war between Rob Lowe and one of his former nannies, Jessica Gibson, has ended, with both sides requesting their lawsuits be dismissed, court records show.

It's unknown if a financial settlement was involved. Lawyers for both sides had no comment.

Lowe, 45, preemptively sued Gibson in Santa Barbara County Superior Court in April 2008, alleging she was trying to blackmail him and his family unless he paid her $1.5 million. Within days, Gibson filed a sexual harassment suit against Lowe and his wife, Sheryl, claiming he groped and exposed himself to her over her seven-year employment with the Lowes.

The actor has steadfastly denied any wrongdoing, while Gibson's attorney claimed the nanny's legal rights were being supressed by Lowe's lawsuit.

A separate legal battle continues with a second nanny, Laura Boyce.
