Jimmy Iovine Accuser Drops S*xual Ab*se Lawsuit

Lyndon Abioye |

The woman who filed a sexual abuse lawsuit against record executive Jimmy Iovine last year has dropped the case against him.

Her attorney Doug Wigdor filed a notice of discontinuance with prejudice on Feb. 15, permanently dropping the suit, telling Rolling Stone that “the matter was resolved to the satisfaction of the parties.”

Iovine was sued in November for assault, battery and violations of the state’s gender-motivated violence and human rights laws. The Jane Doe says she was “sexually abused, forcibly touched, and subjected to sexual harassment and retaliation” by Iovine in August 2007 while she was in a contract with Interscope.

Jimmy Iovine joined Interscope Records with Ted Field in 1990 and served as chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M. He launched stars like No Doubt, 2Pac, Eminem, Beck and Lady Gaga. He went on to create Beats Musi before it was acquired by Apple in 2014 for a combined $3 billion.

Iovine is a close friend of rap producer, Dr. Dre.
