Lizzo has been very active on social media lately. She is flaunting her assets to the public every chance gets. Now she has reached a settlement over the dispute on the credits for a song of her.
Lizzo has been locked in a legal battle over the track “Truth Hurts” since 2019. She was accused of lifting the ‘melody, lyrics and chords’ from a demo titled Healthy. She allegedly copied one of its most famous lines, “I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that b****.”
The singer denied the allegations and sued brothers Justin and Jeremiah Raisen and Justin ‘Yves’ Rothman over their claims. On Friday, attorneys for both sides stated the parties had reached a settlement and asked for ‘dismissal of the entire action without prejudice.’
A federal judge has moved to make the dismissal, reported Rolling Stone. No details of the agreement have been made public. Each side will be required to pay their own legal fees subsequently.
District Judge Dolly M. Gee previously agreed with Lizzo’s claim of making a false accusation. She also said that the songwriters themselves had claimed Healthy was recorded as a ‘standalone’ song. It was not supposed to be a demo for Truth Hurts.
Now that Lizzo is free from the lawsuit, she can focus more freely on her future projects. A new track with Lil Nas X has been teased by the “Old Town Road” singer. Lizzo and her representatives have spoken on the matter yet as of now.
