(CBS/AP) Sean "Diddy" Combs has settled a lawsuit brought by a man who claims the rapper-entertainment mogul punched him after a post-Oscar party outside a Hollywood hotel.

Terms of the deal weren't disclosed in court papersposted Monday on the celebrity Web site

The lawsuit by Gerard Rechnitzer claimed that Combs punched him, pushed his girlfriend and spat on another woman on Feb. 25, 2007, outside Teddy's Nightclub at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Rechnitzer sought unspecified damages.

In a court declaration, Combs, 38, said Rechnitzer lunged toward him and that "any contact ... was caused by his forward motion against my open hand."
