Her lawyer, William Briggs, would not provide details on the settlement reached Wednesday, except to say that the 47-year-old actress is pleased with the settlement. The case was scheduled to go to trial next week.

Her former boyfriend, real estate executive Philip Cyburt, denied any wrongdoing.

Kitaen accused Cyburt of taking money from her brokerage account, writing checks in her name and selling real estate that she owned.

The actress was featured in several 1980s heavy metal music videos, starred with Tom Hanks in the 1984 comedy "Bachelor Party," and recently appeared in VH1's "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew."
