    Case dismissed! A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed against Shakira by her former boyfriend, Antonio de la Rua.

    The California lawsuit was one of three that de la Rua has filed against Shakira seeking to claim a "partnership" interest in Shakira's income, and all three have failed. Shakira, a new mom, commented, "I am very grateful that the courts are not allowing these groundless lawsuits to proceed. I have moved on in my life and could not be happier now. I hope this harassment will now come to an end."

    In the Los Angeles action, Shakira moved to dismiss the case on the ground that California was an improper forum to hear a dispute between Colombian and Argentine citizens, particularly in light of a prenuptial agreement the two signed in 2006, at a Colombian consulate, by which they agreed that de la Rua would have no claim to Shakira's future income as an entertainer. A Swiss judge, ruling in a case de la Rua filed in Geneva, recently held that the 2006 agreement "decisively" compelled the conclusion that Shakira and de la Rua were never legal partners.

    End. Of. Story.
