That didn’t take long.
The Glenn Beck-run media outlet The Blaze was “pleased” to announced that it has “concluded” its relationship with Tomi Lahren with the settlement of the lawsuit the controversial TV personality filed three weeks ago.
The settlement will preclude Beck from testifying in the case, which he was expected to do Thursday, The Dallas Morning News reported.
The mud was already flying hot and heavy in the case, with sources saying Lahren had worn out her welcome at Blaze TV long before she went on ABC’s “The View” to say she was pro-choice, which signaled the beginning of the end of her relationship with the conservative news outlet.
More from the Dallas Morning News on the details of the settlement:
The deal allows the 24-year-old pundit to be freed from her employment contract — which was to expire in September — and pursue new work that competes with The Blaze. She also gets to keep the Facebook page that The Blaze created for her, and on which she has amassed 4.3 million followers.
Lahren will “promptly” return The Blaze’s “intellectual property” that was posted to the Facebook page, said her lawyer, Brian Lauten. In court hearings, Lauten had offered to delete all of the videos produced by The Blaze off the Facebook page, which would include some of Lahren’s most popular posts. Some had been watched more than 67 million times.
In a statement to the media, The Blaze confirmed that Lahren is free to continue her social media presence.
“TheBlaze is pleased to announce that the relationship with Tomi Lahren has concluded. Ms. Lahren will continue to have access to her social media accounts as has always been the case,” the statement said.
And that’s just what she intends to do, according to Lahren’s attorney.
“Ms. Lahren is relieved to have this litigation behind her,” attorney Brian Lauten said in a statement. “She looks forward to connecting with her audience and fan base on the pressing political issues facing our country in the days to come.”
Now back to battling the left.
