Britney Spears has reached a settlement on a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by her former bodyguard Fernando Flores, according to reports.

TMZ says that the 'Femme Fatale' singer went before a private mediator to settle the case and that an agreement has now been reached. However, the terms of the settlement are unknown, and it has not been revealed if Spears was required to give Flores any financial compensation.

Flores first made his allegations in September 2010, when he filed papers at the Los Angeles Superior Court claiming that Spears had made unwanted sexual advances towards him and had also exposed herself naked towards him.

The bodyguard, who worked for Spears from February – July 2010, also alleged that the singer had had sex in front of him. However, Spears' legal team have always maintained that the accusations are untrue, while her ex-husband Kevin Federline also previously described them as "baseless".

In December last year, it was reported that Spears was being sued by her former security team Advanced Security Concepts Corporation, who alleged that failed to pay them an outstanding fee of $141,625 (£91,294).

She released her last studio album, 'Femme Fatale', in March last year. Last November, she claimed that the success of performers such as Jessie J and Adele inspired her to be a better performer.
