Martina Navratilova has managed to do some damage control. The tennis legend has settled out of court with her ex-lover Toni Layton for an estimated $3 million. They were involved in a massive legal battle where Layton threatened to reveal Navratilova’s secrets. That’s a lot of money… we’re guessing the secrets were of the juicy kind!
Layton left her husband Jeffrey Lambert, for Navratilova. The reason why she sued, was because she claimed that Navratilova had abruptly dumped her after eight years together. And to add insult to injury, she also changed the locks of their Florida home. They’ve been involved in a legal battle for two years now over assets including money, four homes, several cars, a boat, jewelry, a Florida animal sanctuary, art, pets and even a set of guns.
It’s not been the best time for 9-time Wimbledon champ. She was also diagnosed with breast cancer, which she announced two months ago.
