WWE Executive Chairman Vince McMahon has actually settled a suit from previous referee Rita Chatterton over claims of sexual attack and rape.
In 1992, Chatterton, WWE’s very first female referee, declared that McMahon had actually raped her in the back of a limo in 1986, and declares she was fired quickly after.
Last November, lawyers for McMahon got a letter from Chatterton’s agents, requiring $11.75 million in payment for the supposed attack.
The Wall Street Journal reports that McMahon has actually consented to a multi-million dollar settlement with Chatterton, which is an amount lower than her preliminary need.
The specific quantity the 2 sides accepted is not public understanding at this time.
In a declaration to the WSJ, McMahon’s lawyer Jerry McDevitt repeated the billionaire’s previous rejection of the rape claims.
McDevitt declares that this settlement was made to prevent the expense of lawsuits.
John Clune, lawyer for Chatterton, did not make a talk about the matter.
Vince McMahon went back to WWE previously this month after retiring in July 2022 over NDAs being paid in relation to allegations of misbehavior with female personnel.
