The woman's attorney filed a request Aug. 3 to dismiss the suit with prejudice, meaning it cannot be refiled. No criminal charges were ever brought.
Snoop Dogg's attorney also asked that a suit he filed against the accuser be dismissed, said the rapper's publicist. Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, paid "absolutely no money in the settlement," according to his spokesperson.
The woman issued a statement saying, "The matter has been resolved amicably, and the lawsuits have been dismissed."
The woman applied Snoop Dogg's makeup before four shows, according to her lawsuit. She said she was drugged with spiked champagne after his final appearance.
Snoop Dogg's lawsuit alleged that the woman had been trying to extort $5 million in exchange for keeping silent. He sought punitive damages and to bar her from future threats.
