Nicholas Cage Settles Suit With Ex-Girlfriend

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Attorneys say they have settled a case involving Nicolas Cage and his ex-girlfriend after an all-day series of meetings with a judge.

The actor did not speak to reporters as he left a Los Angeles courthouse after more than five hours of settlement discussions.

Cage faced off with his ex-girlfriend Christina Fulton throughout the day, walking past her when he arrived Tuesday morning and both were apparently present for a final meeting with Superior Court Judge Teresa Sanchez-Gordon that solidified the deal.

The judge met privately with each side several times before the confidential agreement was reached.

Fulton sued the Oscar winner in December 2009, claiming he owed her $13 million and broke a promise to give her a house for her and their son.
