The Trump Organization and celebrity chef José Andrés have settled a nearly two-year-old lawsuit over Andrés' decision to back out of plans to open a restaurant in the Trump International Hotel, reports The Washington Post.

The drama: Andrés, a Spanish immigrant, pulled out of his lease in 2015 citing Trump's controversial rhetoric toward Mexican immigrants during the campaign. Trump sued him for $10 million.

The company, run by Trump's sons Donald Jr. and Eric, issued a joint statement with Andrés' firm, ThinkFoodGroup, Friday morning, but didn't reveal the details of the settlement. Donald Jr. called the deal a "win-win" for both parties, and stated that the company was glad to "put this matter behind us and move forward as friends."
