Time heals all wounds, at least in the case of Chrisette Michele and her fiancé Doug Ellison. The producer announced his engagement to the Grammy-winner on Instagram earlier today, unveiled the stunning ring with these sentimental posts:

Michele also posted the happy news below with this message:

The pair sued each other for millions of dollars a couple years ago. In 2007, Chrisette filed a lawsuit against her former management team Four Kings, Douglas’ production company, for embezzlement.  The case was later dropped.

One year later, Ellison filed a $20 million dollar law suit against Chrisette Michele for damaging his reputation and money lost.

Apparently, the two resolved their personal and legal issues.

Love conquers all, even court cases.
