Ronda Rousey settles defamation lawsuit with ex-manager
Ronda Rousey has settled her defamation lawsuit with her ex-manager, Darin Harvey of Fight Tribe MMA, and will make changes her to autobiography in order to avoid further action.
Harvey issued a press release stating that Rousey agreed to make changes to her book, “My Fight/Your Fight,” which was published last year. According to Harvey, the publisher “agreed to make material changes to portions of the paperback, ebook and audio book editions and all future printings of the book.”
Harvey had felt that little credit was given to him for the assist he provided to her career and that he was in ways defamed by the book.
Harvey also settled a legal matter with Rousey earlier this year where he was paid an undisclosed amount for his services to Rousey. He had argued that he had a contract to represent Rousey in fighting, acting, modeling and more. Rousey’s legal team tried to say that agreement was invalid.
Rousey’s book is being developed into a movie. You can order the book here.
