Eighties pop star-turned-American Idol judge Paula Abdul has settled a case brought against her by a Hollywood wardrobe stylist.

STANLEY HODGKINS claimed Abdul owed him $5,000 (GBP2,630) for work he carried out for her.

The stylist confirms Abdul has now paid him the $5,000 dollars. He insists he can't talk about the case because of a confidentiality agreement.
