According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Phillippe has informed the court of the settlement with his ex-girlfriend, Elsie Hewitt. The deal comes days before the trial was set to start on October 15.
The settlement will bring an end to the case without a trial. Phillippe was fighting hard to block his ex-wife, Reese Witherspoon, from testifying. Hewitt had pushed hard and was expected to grill the actress in court.
