David Carradine

Wife Settles Lawsuit

Over Actor's Auto-Erotic Death

8/17/2011 10:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-david-carradine-EX
David Carradine's wife has just settled her case against the production company of the movie David was shooting when he died of auto-erotic asphyxiation ... TMZ has learned.

Anne Carradine had sued MK2 Productions, claiming they had a duty to supervise David while he was on the shoot for the movie, "Stretch."  Anne claims the night David died in his Thailand hotel room, the production staff had gone to dinner and told David he would have to make his own arrangements for the evening.

Sources tell us that MK2 paid Anne money to settle.  And, we're told the other defendants -- including the hotel and insurance company have settled as well.

In all, sources say Anne will get around $400,000 from the defendants.

It's a case of a woman scorned - pure and simple. She was jealous of the rope he used to get himself off. Sounds like he preferred it over her.

This is disgusting. That pervert needed a babysitter, mind you. His estate should be paying the people who found him. This is shameful. He will always be remembered for being a pig.

It does sound strange this payout. My question is: what was his estate worth? 400k sounds like a small amount to worry about, Carradine was worth millions.

I'm with everyone else....she sues the production company for her husband's death when it was at his own doing? REALLY??? AND she actually got money for it? WTF?? This is what is wrong with our society today (money hungry) thinking we can just go around and sue everyone for everything...even though it's our own fault. RIDICULOUS!!!
