NEW YORK — One of fashion’s most heated legal feuds has ended in a truce.
Tory Burch and her ex-husband Chris Burch settled their contentious lawsuit over the sale of his stake in Tory Burch LLC with the addition of two new minority investors.
Although the terms of deal are confidential, investment firms BDT Capital Partners LLC and General Atlantic LLC made minority investments in the brand. Both Burches owned a 28.3 percent stake in the company, which the duo created in 2003.
Chris Burch retains a stake in Tory Burch, although a spokesman for the entrepreneur declined to reveal how much he still owns.
“They are completely aligned with our long-term approach to building our brand and share our vision for growth globally,” chief executive officer Tory Burch said of the new minority investors.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
