The partner of the late Gerry Ryan has settled a High Court case aimed at stopping her memoir 'When we Dance' from going on sale.

A friend of the 2fm DJ who was one of the last people to see him alive claimed he was defamed in the book.

The court heard in a statement that Melanie Verwoerd says she never intended to suggest and does not sugest now that David Kavanagh behaved in any way inappopriately on the day before Gerry Ryan's death.

Afterwards, Kavanagh said: “I am very pleased that my strong friendship with Gerry Ryan was acknowledged in court today by Melanie Verwoerd. Gerry was a good friend for more than 30 years and I never neglected that friendship. I miss him greatly.”
