"She is trying to negotiate/plead with him to stop suing (X) company for writing a scandalous newspaper headline about him." - It is better to use "is trying" because you are referring to a continuous action. - "negotiate" is OK if she is offering him something in exchange but "plead" would be better if she is just trying to change his mind. - something is "scandalous", someone is "involved in a scandal"; so I changed the grammar to refer to the headline being "scandalous".
