Snoop Ends Litigation After Woman Drops Rape Lawsuit

SNOOP DOGG has dropped a countersuit against a woman who accused him of drugging and raping her after a TV show recording - after she asked a judge to dismiss her case against the rapper.

Make-up artist KYLIE BELL filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles claiming the hip-hop star, real name CALVIN BROADUS, sexually assaulted her with members of his entourage, after drugging her cup of champagne following a January 2003 taping of US chat show JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE.

And she demanded $5 million (GBP2.8 million) for rape, sexual assault, negligence and emotional distress and $20 million (GBP11 million) in punitive damages.

But Snoop sued Bell - referring to her as JANE DOE - for extortion a month before she filed her lawsuit, claiming she had threatened to tell reporters he assaulted her in 2003.

His court papers state he "reluctantly made minor payments to Jane Doe for a limited period of time in the perhaps naive hope that she would drop" her allegations.

But last Wednesday (03AUG05) Bell and Snoop ended the litigation, without the DROP IT LIKE IT'S HOT star paying Bell anything "in the settlement," according to his publicist MEREDITH O'SULLIVAN.
