The woman, who filed the lawsuit prior to Snoop's Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show performance, reportedly asks the judge to dismiss the case 'without prejudice.'

AceShowbiz - Snoop Dogg can now breathe a little easier. It was unveiled that a woman who recently accused the "Young, Wild & Free" hitmaker of sexual assault decided to drop her lawsuit.

In a motion filed in Los Angeles court on Wednesday, April 6, lawyers for Jane Doe asked the judge to dismiss the case "in its entirety." However, the request was "without prejudice," meaning she could refile the case later.

It remains unclear why the woman made the decision, but the news arrived more than a month after Snoop's legal team asked the court to dismiss the case. In the paperwork obtained by Radar, the emcee's lawyers said that the lawsuit filed by the woman was legally flawed in a variety of ways, including that it was filed years too late. They also stressed that "her gambit will not succeed."

"Plaintiff's complaint, launched just days before defendant's Super Bowl Halftime performance, was a thinly veiled attempt to extort Defendant for money to stop Plaintiff from continuing to assert her false claims publicly," Jennifer L. Keller of the law firm Keller/Anderle LLP wrote. "But the fatal deficiencies in her complaint ensure her gambit will not succeed."

Snoop's attorneys also vehemently denied shocking accusations. "Nothing remotely resembling plaintiff's story about defendant Calvin Broadus ever happened," the lawyers penned, using the rapper's legal name. "He vehemently denies ever engaging in any sex act with plaintiff or assaulting or battering her."

In the legal docs, Jane Doe claimed the alleged incident took place back in 2013 after she watched Snoop's performance in Anaheim, California. The "Straight Outta Compton" actor himself has fired back at the allegations by writing on Instagram, "Gold digger season is here." He continued, "Be careful Nefews keep ya guards up. And Keep ya circle small," adding a lawyer, bag of money and a police officer emoji.

Then in a statement to the press, Snoop's team said that the allegations "are simply meritless." The team further claimed, "They appear to be part of a self-enrichment shakedown scheme... to extort Snoop Dogg right before he performs during this Sunday's Super Bowl halftime show."
