Martina Navratilove and her former partner, Toni Layton, have reportedly settled out of court in their long-running divorce battle.

According to the website Daily News & Analysis, the tennis legend and Layton had had “an unofficial wedding ceremony” some years back during which they agreed to share all the assets they obtained during their relationship. Layton was named grantor and trustee of Navratilova’s estate back in 2002. But Martina had her removed from the position in 2008, accusing her of “abusing her power for improper purposes.”

Martina battling breast cancer

Lesbian tennis legend Martina Navratilova has announced publicly that she is battling breast cancer. She made the announcement this morning on Good Morning America.

She told USA Today, “The bad news is it’s cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread.”

Navratilova said the cancer was detected during a mammogram in January. She said she was diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ, the most common kind of non-invasive breast cancer. Although DCIS is rarely life-threatening itself, it can carry an increased risk of invasive breast cancer later on, USA Today reported.

Navratilova, 53, said she blames herself for not catching the cancer sooner because she went four years between mammograms. She underwent lumpectomy surgery to remove the cancerous tissue on March 15 and will undergo four to six weeks of radiation therapy beginning in May. She said the radiation treatments will lower the risk of the cancer reccuring.

Navratilova will participate in a live chat Thursday at noon, CST, at aarp.org. Go here to get information and to sign up to participate in the chat.
