Jim Belushi and Julie Newmar end years-long neighborhood feud
UPI News Service, 02/03/2006
Feuding Brentwood, Calif., neighbors Jim Belushi and Julie Newmar announced the end of the mutual animosity and $4 million lawsuit Friday.
"Belushi and Newmar have amicably resolved their dispute and regret any harm they may have caused to the other," a statement from publicist Rogers & Cowan said Friday. "They look forward to a peaceful and neighborly relationship."
Belushi "has agreed to settle" his 2004 lawsuit accusing Newmar of engaging in a "malicious and premeditated campaign to prevent and destroy (his) quiet peace," E! Online reported.
Further evidence of an end to the years-long feud between Belushi, 51, and Newmar, 72, was the announcement that TV's Catwoman is guest-starring on Belushi's ABC sitcom "According to Jim."
In the Feb. 21 episode called "The Grumpy Guy," Newmar plays a children's author who models a grumpy old man after Belushi's character, E! said.
