Sharon Osbourne has chosen to settle a lawsuit brought against her by a former participant of the VH1 reality show ‘Rock of Love: Charm School’, where contestants competed to date rock singer Bret Michaels after getting lessons on etiquette and manners from Osbourne.
Megan Hauserman, a former Playboy Playmate, sued Osbourne for battery, negligence and infliction of emotional distress after a December 2008 taping of the show where Osbourne allegedly lost her temper after Hauserman insulted her husband Ozzy Osbourne.
The two parties reached an agreement just before opening arguments Monday (Feb, 14), though attorneys for both sides refused to disclose the amount of the settlement.
According to a source at the time the altercation began after, “Megan reckoned Sharon was sniping at her so she made a comment back saying Sharon was only famous for managing a rock star who isn’t famous anymore – then it all kicked off.”
Hauserman was eliminated after episode 4 of the competition-based reality series.
