The plaintiff of a lawsuit filed against Diplo alleging sexual misconduct has voluntarily filed to dismiss the suit.
“In light of the evidence and after consultation with my attorneys, I have decided to withdraw my lawsuit,” the plaintiff told Billboard in a July 15 statement. “No payment was offered or requested. I regret filing the lawsuit.”
In legal documents obtained and first reported by TMZ on July 7, the woman, who filed under the initials “E.K.,” claimed that Diplo intimidated her into performing oral sex on him and recorded the encounter without her consent. The new allegations led The Baltimore Orioles to cancel Diplo’s July 24 postgame performance at Camden Yards, refunding those who purchased tickets to the show.
Diplo’s attorney, Bryan Freedman, told TMZ that Diplo “will not be pursuing charges of malicious prosecution against them at this time.” Freeman continued, “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.”
