Mary Poppins has settled her case, but don’t expect her to be singing from the rooftops. Julie Andrews announced Thursday that she has settled her 1997 malpractice suit against doctors who she says ruined her singing career after a botched throat operation.
The details of the settlement were not released, but the “Mary Poppins” and “The Sound of Music” songbird said she was satisfied with it.
Andrews’ publicist said that the award-winning singer and actress was devastated after the operation, which left the singer with hoarseness and permanent vocal chord damage.
She has been unable to sing professionally since then.
