NFL Star -- Six-Figure Settlement with Babyface's Ex

3/31/2011 8:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Indianapolis Colts superstar Dwight Freeney just reached a SIX-FIGURE settlement with his landlord -- who also happens to be the ex-wife of legendary music producer Babyface.

It all started back in December, when Freeney's landlord Tracey Edmonds -- who also dated Eddie Murphy -- filed a $400,000 lawsuit against him, claiming Freeney bilked her out of 11 months rent ... on two floors in her famous Edmonds Tower building in Hollywood.

According to the lawsuit, Freeney agreed to pay $37,500 per month for the space -- which he used for his recording studio -- but failed to pay more than one installment.

Now, it's all water under the bridge -- Tracey's lawyer Trent Copeland negotiated a comfortable six-figure settlement ... and that's that.

Copeland tells TMZ, "A six-figure settlement has resolved the dispute. Tracy feels completely vindicated. Money has been paid."

@5 therock...nothing extremist feminist about this. Where the **** did you get that from. Dude didn't pay his rent, landlord happens to be a woman. I'm sure you'd be pissed too if someone didn't pay their rent to you.

Btw, don't get your vasectomy reversed (not that it would matter because I doubt any girl would sleep with you)...but scared of the thought of you being a dad to a girl or worse, having a mini you.

The truth lies more with the landlord who lusts over publicity along with the ambulance chasing attorney.

ANYONE that knows this lady (she would eat her own children) knows that there is no way in Hollywood she would let someone get 11 months behind on their rent. Better believe this is a publicity stunt ON HER PART.

Anything to get their names in the media.

If you bothered to read the article carefully you'd see that he paid only the first months rent ( "one installment" ( not the best writing skills here TMZ ) ) and owes for 11 months .,.,meaning shes suing him for the 11 months owed on a one year lease , it doesnt say how long she waited before suing but if he signed a 1 year lease hes responsible for the year unless she rents it out before the years lease is up , then she can't double collect .

learn to read carefully before you blab that she waited 11 months then decided to sue .,.,.,.

First off this dumb stank hoe named Tracey Edmonds is a total swindler and a racist, I have a friend that worked for her and heard conversations between her and her mother, brother and employees putting black people down like they aint black...lol..what a loser she and her family is!!!
Not only that but her and her ex Babyface stink so bad in person...Gurl use deodorant and cooch wash PLEASE!
She rapes every budget she touches too thats why The Edmonds Entertainment name in hollywood is a red flag and everyone knows that who is anyone in Hollywood!

Can we say "Black List"...no pun intended!
