Jeremy Clarkson settles Lawsuit


Ex-Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson is never one to back down or create constroversy. Last year Clarkson struck Oisin Tymons, BBC producer, while he was shouting at Tymons at a hotel in North Yorkshire. Since the incident, Clarkson has apologized to Tymons stating “I would like to say sorry, once again, to Oisin Tymon for the incident and its regrettable aftermath.”

Since the aftermath of the incident, Clarkson has been fired from the Top Gear franchise and has agreed to settle with the produce to the tune of $140,000. Clarkson’s co-host, James May and Richard Hammond both refused to continue the show without Clarkson. Since their departures, Top Gear has been on a hunt to find replacement hosts which was officially announced earlier this month.

The rebooted TV series will air again in May.
