Spears's new single debuted at the top of the US charts recently
Pop star Britney Spears and a photographer who claimed she ran over his foot in her car have settled a lawsuit, court records show.
Ricardo Mendoza sued the singer in May, accusing her of assault, battery and negligently driving her car in Beverly Hills in 2007.
Details of their settlement have not been disclosed.
At the time of the incident, Mr Mendoza was working for Hollywood-based showbiz website TMZ.
The site auctioned his tyre-stained sock off to the singer's fans and donated the proceeds to charity.
The incident happened on the day that Spears lost custody of her two sons.
Last week, the singer went straight to the top of the US charts with latest single 3.
It was the first single to debut at the top of the Hot 100 chart in more than three years, according to Billboard magazine.
The track is the only new song included on a greatest hits CD due for release next month.
