TMZ Sports reported on Wednesday night that Jameis Winston has settled his civil suit with Erica Kinsman, the woman who accused him of rape.

Information on the details of the settlement remain unknown. Kinsman has already won $950,000 in a suit she filed separately against Florida State University.

According to TMZ Sports, “…Erica Kinsman sued the Buccaneers QB in April 2015 for sexual battery, assault and false imprisonment even though he was never criminally charged.”

The incident became even more controversial, when reports surfaced suggesting that the Tallahassee Police Department and Florida State had tried to hamper the investigation.

Kinsman accused Winston of rape in December of 2012. In 2013, Winston won the Heisman Trophy and led Florida State to a national championship.
