The video surfaced after Ledger's death last January.

"Entertainment Tonight" had plans to air part of the footage and showed a teaser, but backed off after receiving pressure from stars and publicists. On it, Ledger is heard talking about his wife and daughter and prior drug use.

A freelance reported who appears on the tape sued to have the tape destroyed. She claimed the agency provided the drugs to Ledger, the agency denied the allegations.

Terms of the settlement were not made public.
