A Los Angeles superior Court judge has dismissed the lawsuit against Shakira by her former boyfriend Antonio de la Rua, according to E! News.
The California lawsuit was one of three suits that where filed against the singer, claiming ‘partnership’ interests in Shakira’s income. All three cases were suit down by the court.
Shakira said in a statement, “I am very grateful that the courts are not allowing these groundless lawsuits to proceed.’ Adding,’ I have moved on in my life and could not be happier now. I hope this harassment will now come to an end.”
Her ex filed the suit on April 12th, after filing a $250 million lawsuit against the star in New York, last November.
In the California lawsuit, Shakira’s representatives filed a motion to dismiss on March 28th, claiming that the court didn’t have jurisdiction because Shakira and Antonio are Colombian and Argentine citizens, respectively. The court also noted that the couple had signed a “prenuptial-type agreement applicable to unmarried couples” in 2006, which they “expressly manifested their wish to conserve, each separately, of totality of their past, current and future assets.”
In the case that de la Rua filed in Geneva, a Swiss judge held that the 2006 agreement ‘decisively’ compelled the conclusion that Shakira and her ex were never legal partners.
In a statement to E! News, Shakira’s attorney, Ezequiel Camerini said, “In a fifteen page well-reasoned opinion the Swiss court dismissed all of Mr. de la Rua’s claims that he was entitled to any participation in Shakira’s past, current or future business, brand or assets, including future income.”
