Woody Allen’s bank manager is waking up a happy man.
As woody Allen has accepted a cool $5 million dollars settlement from American Apparel for using his image without his permission. The court case was due to start today but did Woody just cave against the clothing giant?… Who knows.

In his defence Woody said he hoped the outcome “would discourage American Apparel or anyone else from ever trying such a thing again.”

American Apparel president Dov Charney told reporters it wasn’t his decision to settle. The company’s insurance company “controlled the defense” in the case.

Apparel asked for a bunch of statements all relating to Woody Allen and his life, from bank statements to marriage certs etc.

Why? To prove his image was worth fuck all
