Glee's Mark Salling Settles Sexual Battery Lawsuit With Former Girlfriend, Ordered to Pay $2.7 Million

E! News confirms that Glee star Mark Salling has settled his lawsuit with former girlfriend Roxanne Gorzela after he was accused of sexual battery in January 2013. The 32-year-old star was ordered by a judge to pay $2.7 million to Gorzela, per the terms of the settlement. Gorzela accused Salling of sexual battery and assault in her 2013 complaint, in which she claimed the actor, in March 2011, had unprotected sexual contact with her despite her demands that he wear a condom. She also stated that she became "overwhelmed with anxiety" in the days following the encounter, worrying that she may have contracted a sexually transmitted disease, at which point she confronted Salling at his home, claiming that he grabbed and pushed her, causing her to hit her head.
