LOS ANGELES -- Wise-cracking comedian Roseanne Barr and her ex- husband William Pentland have reached an amicable settlement to a multimillion-dollar divorce dispute.
Details of the settlement were not disclosed in a brief announcement Tuesday through their attorneys.
'The settlement was reached through friendly negotiations and was fair to both parties,' said the statement released by Barr's attorney, Arlene Coleman-Schwimmer, and Pentland's lawyer, Marvin Mitchelson.
Pentland last year file suit against Barr, seeking half of undertermined assets the couple accumulated during their 15-year marriage, $15 million in damages and another $3 million from her current husband, Tom Arnold, claiming that his actions led to Barr ending her business and personal relationship with Pentland in 1989.
Pentland claimed he had sacrificed his own career to manage Barr's, acted as a homemaker for her and helped develop and write her comedy material, including the top-rated 'Roseanne' television series.
Both Barr and Pentland, calling the settlement a 'private, personal and confidential matter,' declined through their attorneys to comment further about it.
