Legal counsel for both Adam Lambert and Colwel Platinum Entertainment are still very much engaged in negotiations to settle a November lawsuit, despite early reports from celebrity gossip sites.

The lawsuit, filed by the company headed up by Lambert’s pre-Idol producer Malcolm Welsford, was initially to be answered by Jan. 3, 2012. Lambert’s legal representation negotiated a delay to push the response off to Jan. 17. When the date passed, lalate.com reported that the deal fell through and the case would go to jury trial.

Not so, clarifies a source close to the case. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the source had this to say:

“The lalate.com article seems to have jumped the gun on Colwel v. Lambert, probably watching the court docket for any tidbit on celebrity cases. A settlement agreement is still actively being ironed out by both parties, and news will definitely be released when it is finalized.”
