Becky G Drops $105 Million Legal Battle Over Business Deal
Singer Becky G has dismissed her massive lawsuit against her former business partner.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Becky G (real name: Rebecca Marie Gomez) has informed the court she is dropping all claims against CORE Nutrition.
Back in November, 21-year-old Becky G sued the bottled water company named Core Nutrition and trashed music producer Dr. Luke in the complaint, but did not name him as a defendant.
Core Nutrition was in the process of being bought for $525-million-dollars by the company that owns Dr. Pepper. Luke has an ownership in Core and worked with Becky on her music career.
In the suit, Becky G explained for years she promoted Core on social media and in her music videos since the beginning of her career. However, she claimed to only have gone along with it out of fear Luke would ruin her career if she refused, who was also her former label boss.
The singer claimed she eventually learned she was being used as a ,“walking, talking, and singing billboard to turn its irrelevant water brand into a hip and culturally relevant water company.”
All the while, Dr. Luke made it clear both directly and implicitly that Ms. Gomez's ability to have a music career would be tied to her continuing involvement in promoting Core."
Becky G claimed she was promised 50,000 shares of the company which based on the possible evaluation of the sale in process could equal at least $105 million for the singer. She claimed Core was trying to screw her over before the sale closes.
CORE Nutrition denied all allegations of wrongdoing and demanded the suit be tossed.
