/ Shakira Wins: Ex-Boyfriend's Lawsuit Dismissed, Singer "Could Not Be Happier Now

Case closed. E! News has learned that a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has dismissed the lawsuit filed against Shakira by her former boyfriend, Antonio de la Rua. The California lawsuit was one of three suits that de la Rua filed against the Colombian crossover star, seeking to claim a "partnership" interest in Shakira's income, and all three were shut down by the court. "I am very grateful that the courts are not allowing these groundless lawsuits to proceed," the new mom said in a statement. "I have moved on in my life and could not be happier now. I hope this harassment will now come to an end." A Swiss judge, ruling in the case that de la Rua filed in Geneva, held that the 2006 agreement "decisively" compelled the conclusion that Shakira and her ex were never legal partners. "In a fifteen page well-reasoned opinion the Swiss court dismissed all of Mr. de la RĂșa's claims that he was entitled to any participation in Shakira's past, current or future business, brand or assets, including future income," the singer's attorney, Ezequiel Camerini, said in a statement to E! News.
