(Newser) – Brooke Shields has settled with the National Enquirer after two tabloid journalists reportedly signed her mother out of her New Jersey nursing home last month, reports People. The tabloid has agreed not to publish the story, will publicly apologize, and will donate money to research on dementia, a condition from which Teri Shields suffers. "The idea that the National Enquirer took advantage of her state is reprehensible and disgusting," said Brooke.
