You/Huisgenoot/Drum editor Esmaré Weideman and singer Steve Hofmeyr have announced the end of their long-running legal battles.

According to a Beeld report, Hofmeyr threw a cup of cold tea on Weideman during a function at Sun City and she sued him. Hofmeyr then instituted a counter-claim for damages, alleging the magazines infringed on his privacy leading to the breakdown of his marriage. Both parties have withdrawn their claims.
