The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday that Blake's lawyers and lawyers representing the estate of Bonnie Lee Bakley have agreed to work with a mediator in an effort to settle the case. The estate sued three years ago, a year after Bakley was gunned down outside a restaurant in Studio City.
Blake claims he has almost no money after spending $10 million to defend himself on the murder charge. He says he owes $1.5 million in taxes.
The suit is scheduled to go to trial in July. Any damages would go to Bakley's children, including Rosie, 4, her daughter with Blake.
