Avril Lavigne has dropped her breach-of-contract lawsuit against two live concert streaming companies, in which the singer alleged she was owed $375,000 in connection with a concert she gave in New York City in 2013.
Attorney Michael Grahn, on behalf of Lavigne, filed papers Sept. 26 in Los Angeles Superior Court asking that the lawsuit be dismissed. But the documents did not state whether a settlement was reached or if the 33-year-old “Complicated” singer was not pursuing the case for other reasons, and Grahn could not be immediately reached for comment.
In June, he filed court documents seeking a default judgment against 2VLive Group Ltd. and JH2 Group Inc.
Filed in July 2014, the suit alleged the companies were co-owners of each other and that they agreed to pay Lavigne $500,000 for the concert.
The Canadian-born entertainer received $125,000, but not the remainder, according to the complaint, which also alleged Lavigne was to receive 15 percent from a deal with a 2VLive affiliate which produces video greeting cards.
