Two women who filed a lawsuit against rapper Snoop Dogg after their breast-flashing pictures were used on a cover of the GIRLS GONE WILD video series have settled out of court.

Terms of the settlement, which was approved on 12 July (04), were not revealed in the court record. The suit also named JOSEPH R FRANCIS, the owner of MANTRA FILMS INC, which has produced the series of raunchy mail-order videos.

JAIME CAPDEBOSCQ, who was 17 at the time the pictures were taken, and WHITNI CANDIOTTO, who was 18, claim that Francis broke a promise that the picture would not be used in connection with the video.

When the tape - known as GIRLS GONE WILD DOGGY STYLE and hosted by Snoop Dogg - came out, the women found their pictures on the cover.

Francis and Snoop Dogg, real name CALVIN BROADUS, claim the pictures were taken with voluntary consent. They also said a sign was posted in the video shooting area that said, "By entering, you consent to the use of such film and your image in a commercial film product."

The pictures were reportedly taken during a party for Snoop Dog at a New Orleans, Louisiana, hotel in 2002.
