Brody Jenner is not only retracting his allegation that Joe Francis beat up Jayde Nicole (Brody's then-girlfriend), he's apologizing to his former enemy.
He's obligated to, of course, as part of the settlement to their legal war over an incident that took place between the three of them in August 2009.
Jayde Nicole said Francis pulled her hair and punched her in the face in a wild nightclub melee that ended with a chivalrous Jenner getting tasered.
Bromance means being able to own up to it when you're wrong.
Their stories varied, but Joe was too close to his ex (and Jayde's BFF) Abbey Wilson for the couple's liking. Jayde sued the Girls Gone Wild founder.
That's all water under the bridge now. Brody and Jayde split last December, and after settling with Francis, he writes as part of this public apology:
"I would like to acknowledge for the record that media reports that you beat up Jayde Nicole that night ... were completely inaccurate."Now with Avril Lavigne, Brody adds: "I have always known you to be a gentleman and I'm very sorry that you were wrongly accused that night."
And the always-polite Brody Jenner even ends by writing, "Please accept my congratulations and best wishes on your recent marriage."
Joe married Christina McLarty last month. We're guessing Brody wasn't invited to the wedding, but at least they've buried the hatchet.
