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.

Kyle dodged a bullet on that one and got paid too. I would not doubt that Mom Sarah had something to do with cutting out the Black brothers. Poor Bristol has no talent or personality.

Great story. Im glad Kyle and his brother were able to get some type of restitution. Their are so many other people of all races but especially Blacks who have had their ideas and inventions stolen while thieves profit from it and the courts sit by and do nothing.

That's whacked when you can steal someones art and sell it, and all you have to do is pay a bit to the artist when you get caught. How about putting this guy in jail for theft. One set of rules for the rich, another set of rules for the poor.
