Chris Rock has reached a confidential settlement to end a lawsuit that involves a Hungarian model, paternity, Anthony Pellicano and a Kleenex tissue kept in a freezer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the legal claim was filed by Monika Zsibrita in Los Angeles Superior Court.

She brought a paternity action against Rock more than a decade ago, but DNA tests showed that he was not the father of her daughter. Nevertheless, according to a later lawsuit that was first filed as Jane Doe v. John Doe to keep secrets, Rock and Zsibrita executed a confidentiality agreement to cover up what allegedly happened in 1998 in a Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills.

According to Zsibrita, Rock attacked her and attempted to force her to perform oral sex on him. A week later, the two went out on another date, and there allegedly was forced intercourse. In the pleadings, Rock denied all allegations of rape and other wrongdoing.

Zsibrita became pregnant and believed the child to be Rock’s, but the paternity test said it wasn’t. During the paternity proceeding, Rock hired Pellicano, and Zsibrita reported that her house was broken into and pictures of her daughter were taken.

The two sides agreed to confidentiality, but that started to unravel when Rock appeared on the Howard Stern radio show, saying that he was scammed, that he was approached by a woman saying she was a big fan, that he forgot to wear a condom, that a Nigerian got her pregnant and that it was all a setup.

Also, during the Pellicano wiretapping trial, Rock took the stand and reportedly admitted hiring Pellicano to investigate Zsibrita.

These disclosures allegedly violated the confidentiality agreement between Rock and Zsibrita. So she sued him (as well as Pellicano, Pacific Bell Telephone Co. and police officials), originally for breach of written contract, intrusion, invasion of privacy, wiretapping, trespass and more.

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.”

    Women are cheating all over the place, nowadays! (Leann Rimes, Coco/IceT, Kristen Stewart, Suzy Favor Hamilton the Olympian & Vegas call girl, Rita Ora/Kardashian, Petraeus women).

    My latest book, “I Steal Wives: A serial adulterer reveals the REAL reasons more and more ‘happily married’ women are cheating” is a powerful look at this EXPLOSIVE topic of female infidelity. And the REAL reasons aren’t the typical blather you hear on talk-TV or read in the SECOND-HAND information of some psychologist’s self-help book. It’s now trending in the top 1% of books selling on Amazon!

    This is not a ‘nice’ book in any way, whatsoever. It is HIGHLY CONTROVERSIAL: you’ll either love it or HATE it! It will bring up stuff you don’t want to think about or look at! It will offend you.

    The book is the FIRST BOOK EVER WRITTEN on female infidelity from the FIRST-HAND, insider experience of a serial adulterer, who cheated with the wives/girlfriends of over 25 married men (and a few women), and who also happens to be a therapist (never cheated with clients)! “I Steal Wives” is a salacious, self-deprecating, at times funny, and powerfully insightful look into what is now the very cutting-edge of relationships.

    It’s the relationship version of “How to Secure Your House, as told by a professional burglar!” This is no joke, though it’s written in guy language and guy stories, the raw truths of “I Steal Wives” will forever change how you do relationships and understand women, especially if you are one!

    Check it out now at Amazon!

    Here is my take. First. Rock is not a shining example of what a true american black man should be like. I am tired of these men who have no morals sleeping around with women that they are not married to. Second, this woman needs to be in jail. She falsley accused rock of rape. She needs to spend just as much time in jail that they would have given Rock if found guilty. Sorry folks but if you accuse a man of tryin to forcibly sexually assualt you then you go out again with him a second time then you have no right to claim rape. Even if the rape did happen. This woman was after money and it is criminal. I just feel bad for the baby she had just to try to prove her case. Tissue in the freezer. Please. We need judges with common sense.
