Kanye West and the Italian photographer who filed a lawsuit last year accusing Kim Kardashian‘s baby daddy of using his photo titled “Lolli-Pop” as cover art on a mixtape featured on the rapper’s website, has been ordered into settlement talks, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Fabio Massimo Gammacurta sued West on April 9, 2013 for more than $150,000.

The original complaint states that Ibn Jasper copied Gammacurta’s “Lolli-Pop” work and placed it on “West’s blog and other websites for download as the cover art for his mixed tape ‘F.M. Phenomenal Ziptape Vol. 1: It’s Gucci Time.’”

According to court documents obtained by Radar, settlement talks were ordered by United States Vernon S. Broderick on March 12 to West and Gammacurta.

Furthermore, if a settlement is unable to be reached, depositions are scheduled to be completed by July 10, with a trial scheduled to begin on Oct. 29, expected to last two to three days.

Yeezus recently debuted his A.P.C. x Kanye collection last month, several online commenters noted it had a striking similarity to designs by Rick Owens for DRKSHDW — which West himself has frequently worn.

And a jacket with a fur collar from West’s collection was nearly identical to an Ermanno Scervino coat that both he and his pal Scott Disick  had been photographed in as well.
