Kyle Massey

Settles Beef Over

Kyle Massey has laid down his sword in his legal war over a Bristol Palin reality show -- after reaching a financial settlement with the producer who allegedly stole the idea from him.

We broke the story ... Kyle and his brother Chris had filed a lawsuit, claiming they came up with the idea to produce a reality show focusing on Bristol raising her son in L.A. ... only to have a TV producer highjack the idea, sell it to Lifetime, and cut them out of the project.

The Masseys had demanded more than $500k in damages.

But now, a rep for the bros tells TMZ the battle is officially over ... after both sides reached a financial settlement.  The details of the deal are unclear -- though we're told the Masseys are satisfied.

What a Tripp.

Settlement means they stole the idea. See, not everyone who sues is a crank, mercenary, or leach.

I just love the way your site (and most), come up with the perfect picture for a story. Kyle with that smug look on his face, and Bristol with that "humph" look on hers. I'm imagining your staff filing different celeb pics under various titles like Happy, Sad, Mad, Shocked...etc." Too funny!! Having said that, I'm sure he's a happy camper right now.

Sarah DEMANDED Kyle be cut out of the picture when she got wind that her daughter might be moving into/sharing a house with him in LA for the show.

HER daughter, shaking up with a *GASP* BLACK MAN!? Sarah put the kibosh on that in seconds. She's SO racist.

Thank God that show got cancelled. That show gave the word boring a new definition. BrisDULL has no talent and no personality. She is no star. And doesn't seem too loyal to her friends since she particpated in a show that stealed the Massey Bros. idea. The Palins will do anything for a buck.

Kyle is proud of HIS idea? Not very creative. Matter of fact, the reality show was a big flop. A-hole. I watched a part of one episode - boring.

Glad the Massey Brothers won. Palins have attorneys on speed dial--they would just file the Massey's comments under unethical complaints and think that because they were filed there (by the Palins) that means that the Palins were in the right. Now everyone can see why Gino and Levi decided to walk away from this family of grifters.
