A sexual assault lawsuit against Diplo has been dropped.

“In light of the evidence and after consultation with my attorneys, I have decided to withdraw my lawsuit,” the plaintiff said in a statement to the outlet. “No payment was offered or requested. I regret filing the lawsuit.”

The woman alleged in the filing that at an afterparty, Diplo had offered the plaintiff alcohol and marijuana, which she accepted, and then stopped her from leaving his hotel room until she performed oral sex on him. She also alleged that he may have filmed the incident without her consent.

Diplo‘s attorney Bryan Freedman said in a statement, “As we said when we first learned of this lawsuit, there was absolutely irrefutable evidence that proved that the allegations it contained were false. As soon as we shared that plethora of evidence with the plaintiff’s lawyers, they recognized that they needed to withdraw their suit immediately.”

“This demonstrably false claim… has caused great harm. While that damage can never fully be undone, we are glad to see this lawsuit be dismissed with prejudice,” he continued.

In November 2020, Diplo was accused of distributing revenge porn. See his response here.
