Woman withdraws lawsuit accusing Snoop Dogg of sexual assault

A woman is withdrawing a complaint accusing rapper Snoop Dogg and another man of sexually assaulting her following a concert nearly nine years ago.

His attorney, Matt Finkelberg, filed a notice of withdrawal of suit without prejudice Wednesday with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, court records show. The record does not specify why the lawsuit was dropped.

Finkelberg did not immediately respond to a request for comment from NBC News on Thursday.

“It is not surprising that the plaintiff dismissed her complaint against the defendants,” a spokesperson for Snoop Dogg said Thursday. “His complaint was full of false allegations and flaws.”

The woman, Jane Doe, claimed she was assaulted by Snoop Dogg and his friend, Donald Campbell, also known as Bishop Don Magic Juan in May 2013 following a concert.

His lawsuit was filed in December through the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, but had passed the statute of limitations for the administrative proceeding.

According to the initial complaint filing, the woman attempted to resolve the issue in private mediation, but talks were “unsuccessful”.

The lawsuit made headlines in February as it was filed just days before Snoop Dogg was scheduled to host the Super Bowl halftime show and reported hours before a press conference.

Representatives for Snoop Dogg have denied that the rapper had “any sexual relationship whatsoever” with the woman, according to a February statement.

Snoop Dogg, real name Calvin Broadus, and Campbell separately filed a motion to dismiss last month. Their lawyers called the allegations false and lacking in legal basis, urging the court to dismiss the lawsuit in its motion.

The motions noted that Jane Doe had not provided proof that she had ever been employed by Snoop Dogg or that she had received a “quid pro quo” for the alleged sex acts.
