TMZ reports that the woman has voluntarily decided to withdraw her lawsuit filed against Diplo. In a statement released via her attorney Joe Ortuno, she said:

In light of the evidence and after consultation with my attorneys, I have decided to withdraw my lawsuit. No payment was offered or requested. I regret filing the lawsuit.

According to court documents filed in Clark County, Nevada, on July 8, 2021, the woman claimed that Diplo coerced her into performing oral sex and filming it against her will. She alleged that the incident took place at an after party following one of the DJ’s Las Vegas shows in 2019.

Following the withdrawal of the lawsuit filed against Diplo, the producer’s attorney Bryan Freedman said:

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 recognised that they needed to withdraw their suit immediately.
