The NFL has reached a settlement in its lawsuit against singer M.I.A., the performer's lawyer told ESPN.com.

The league filed suit with the American Arbitration Association against M.I.A. for $1.5 million in March 2012, a month after she flipped off cameras while performing at the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show. In March of this year, the NFL filed for an additional $15.1 million in damages.

Neither the league nor M.I.A.'s lawyer said how much the settlement was worth nor gave any further details.

The incident with M.I.A. followed the infamous Janet Jackson "wardrobe malfunction" at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004 when the singer exposed her breast during the halftime show.

This week, Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was fined $12,000 for flipping off the Washington Redskins bench during the teams' preseason game on Monday.
