As we previously reported, #RussellSimmons had been going toe-to-toe with a woman named Jennifer Jarosik, who was trying to sue him for millions of dollars after accusing him of sexual assault.

Earlier this month, Russell responded to the lawsuit saying that Jarosik had sent him nudes and texts after the alleged incident. He also accused her of just trying to extort him on the wave of the #MeToo movement.

Both parties were headed to court to resolve the case, and Russell ended up scoring a victory. According to @TMZ_Tv, the case was dismissed this morning without prejudice, which means Jarosik can’t refile.

There’s no word on whether or not there was a settlement involved.
