TMZ reports that Sean Kingston has settled a lawsuit with a 22-year-old girl who accused the singer and his former bodyguards of gang rape in 2010.
According to sources, Kingston settled the lawsuit not because he's admitting guilt, but because his upcoming tour and new album release would prevent him from focusing his energies on a civil trial. In addition, Kingston's team reportedly paid the alleged victim only a fraction of what she asked for in order to make the lawsuit disappear as soon as possible. The amount paid was not disclosed.
Kingston is said to believe he would've won the case if it went to trial. One source said, "Her story wasn't consistent. She told various stories throughout her interviews with police. Her friend's story wasn't consistent with hers. The medical report had no indications of force."
