Krewella has reportedly settled with ex-bandmate Kris “Rain Man” Trindl following his $5 million lawsuit for allegedly being unfairly removed from the group.
In an interview published on Sunday, Forbes reports that sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf received the paperwork to settle the lawsuit in mid-July. Krewella’s representatives declined a request for comment.
While the Yousafs did not go into detail on the lawsuit settlement, they did discuss the backlash that prompted Jahan to pen a Billboard guest op-ed addressing sexism and internet bullying last December.
“People went immediately into believing everything that they read…” said Jahan. “People wanted to immediately jump to these conclusions that ‘Of course they’re women, they use their sex to sell the group. They manipulate men in the industry. They can’t be trusted.’ And those were the constant themes that we kept seeing.”
Krewella — who Forbes estimates to have raked in $8 million over the past year — have released singles “Say Goodbye” and “Somewhere to Run” since the split. Trindl has remained busy as well, releasing first single “Visionary” on Buygore in March.
