Ikumi Yoshimatsu, who in 2012 became the first Japanese beauty queen to win the Miss International contest, has reached a settlement with a major talent agency executive she had sued for harassment and stalking.
The executive had meanwhile filed a countersuit against Yoshimatsu, 28, for defamation.
In a recent blog post, Yoshimatsu thanked the people who supported her in her legal battle. She wrote that she had reached a settlement but did not go into specifics.
According to media reports, the settlement reached early this month is centered on Yoshimatsu’s retraction of all the accusations against the executive — that he inflicted physical violence on her, obstructed her career and blackmailed her family members.
According to a separate source, the talent agency executive meanwhile promised not to contact Yoshimatsu, her family or her talent agency without due reason.
