Linda Evangelista 'pleased' to settle $50M CoolSculpting case after fat-freezing trauma

Linda Evangelista has finally settled the $50 million CoolSculpting case she filed years

after she claimed the non-invasive, fat-freezing cosmetic procedure left her "permanently disfigured" with "bulges and protrusions.

The 57-year-old supermodel alleged that she was "brutally disfigured" and had been

unable to work following the rounds of "nightmare" procedures which began in August 2015 through February 2016.

It's unclear what Evangelista received in the settlement, or the terms negotiated between either party.

"I'm pleased to have settled the CoolSculpting case," she shared with her one million Instagram fans on Tuesday.

I look forward to the next chapter of my life with friends and family, and am happy to put this matter behind me.

I am truly grateful for the support I have received from those who have reached out."

In September of last year, Evangelista filed a lawsuit against CoolSculpting’s parent company, Zeltiq Aesthetics Inc.
