The complaint was incredibly salacious. For instance, after Rock allegedly raped her, Zsibrita said that she kept a Kleenex tissue of his sperm. The lawsuit also raised doubts about some of the tests. A blood test of both Rock and Zsibrita was said to have been performed “under peculiar circumstances” and that an attorney “prematurely jumped out of [a] car to deliver the blood samples to the lab, thus destroying the chain of control and authenticity so that Plaintiff’s attorney could ensure there was no tampering of the samples.”
The complaint also included discussions between Pellicano and Rock in which the comedian allegedly admitted that he used a condom with her and that it could have contained his DNA. Pellicano also allegedly told Rock what Zsibrita had discussed with the police, including that she had kept the Kleenex in a freezer.
After the lawsuit was filed, Rock argued that it should be dismissed because, among other things, it was filed too late to be within the statute of limitations. A judge threw out 12 of the 13 claims on summary judgment but allowed the breach of contract action to survive.
Rock never has been charged with a crime and has denied that a rape ever occurred.
A notice of settlement was filed this week in court. Terms aren’t known. Brian Wolf at Lavely & Singer, who represented Rock, tells The Hollywood Reporter that the dispute has been “resolved amicably.”
