R&B Diva Patti LaBelle has agreed to pay $100,000 (£63,000) to a woman after a row over parenting.
LaBelle was accused of hurling abuse at a woman in Manhattan, throwing water at her and her 18-month-old daughter in an apartment lobby.
Roseanna Monk and her husband Kevin filed a lawsuit against LaBelle last year.
The couple live in a Manhattan building where the singer stayed whilst appearing in the Broadway musical "Fela!".
The couple's lawyer, Sam Davis, told the New York Post that LaBelle settled the case before even being deposed.
The Monks say they will donate the money to a children's cancer charity.
The lawsuit states that LaBelle chastised Roseanna Monk, threw a bottle of water and launched into an obscenity-filled tirade during the argument.
LaBelle, christened Patricia Louise Holte-Edwards, is a Grammy Award winning American singer, author and actress who has spent over 50 years in the music industry.
LaBelle spent 16 years as lead singer of Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles, who released the iconic disco song Lady Marmalade.
Her musical career has resulted in inductions into the Grammy Hall of Fame, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Apollo Hall of Fame as well as the World Music Awards presenting her with the prestigious Legend Award.
LaBelle’s publicist declined to comment on the argument which took place in November, 2010.
