Brooke Shields Scores Settlement

6/7/2009 2:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brooke ShieldsBrooke Shields has settled her beef with The National Enquirer.

A few weeks back, a freelance reporter working for the tabloid checked Shields' mother out of her nursing home. According to Shields, her mother, who suffers from dementia, was driven around in an attempt to find a "story." It was disgusting then, and it still seems disgusting now.

The mag responded to these allegations of gross abuse by claiming the reporter had been a friend of Shields' mother for ten years and was merely helping her run some errands. Interesting ....

In the end, the Enquirer has agreed to apologize for the actions of its reporter and make a sizable donation to further research on dementia, reports People Magazine.

Wow. Alot of different opinions. I am old enouh to remember when "TERI" (Brooke's Mom) would call mags like the Enquirer to get a story about her daughter out, (she managed Brooke for 2 decades). It is quite possible that this freelance reporter WAS a friend. What the story did expose is that BROOKE'S Mom is in another state, while Brooke is still living in L.A.......Very interesting that "this" is how we found out avout her Mommy dearest. Were it my Mom, I would have her close by me so I could see over her. What do you think??? hmmmmmmm!

Would this not be considered KIDNAPPING? Why can't they prosecute this person for intentionally taking this woman without her guardian (Brooke) being notified? That is KIDNAPPING!

If somoene were to take my mother who is ill , from a hospital bed and kidnapp her...Umm they would have two broken legs and a bat to the head. They should be arrested for kidnapping and elder abuse.
