Timbaland and Swizz Beatz have settled their lawsuit with Triller over their Verzuz battle show.

Alexa, play Rihanna’s “B---h Better Have My Money"! It appears that a check may have been cleared in regards to Timbaland and Swiss Beatz's lawsuit against Triller. According to the New York Post, the pair has settled the lawsuit with triller in regards to unpaid funds in regards to the sale of Verzuz.

Keep in mind, the terms of the settlement have not been disclosed at this time.

For folks that have been MIA, let's take a trip down memory lane to put this all into perspective. In August 2022, TMZ reported that Timbaland and Swizz Beatz were determined to collect what’s owed to them from Triller.

The outlet shared that the two producers decided to take Triller to court for non-payment in relation to the popular battle show. In a controversial move, the pair sold Verzuz to Triller in January 2021 and are now claiming that the company didn't pony up the funds.

Per documents obtained by TMZ at the time, Triller allegedly only made two payments of the agreed $28 million. Interestingly, the producers claimed that a settlement was reached after the first default, but Triller allegedly continued with the same song and dance.

As a result, Timbaland and Swizz wanted Triller to run them their money with interest expeditiously. However, a representative for Triller told the outlet at the time that it was all a simple “misunderstanding.”

"This is truly unfortunate and we hope it is nothing more than a misunderstanding driven by lawyers,” Triller’s PR rep told TMZ. “We do not wish to air our dirty laundry in the press, but we have paid Swizz and Tim millions in cash and in stock."

In fact, the rep shared that “no one has benefitted as much from Triller to date” and that they have “truth and facts on their side should they have to defend themselves.”

“Triller has helped fuel Verzuz to new heights — making it the global cultural phenomenon it is today,” the PR rep added. “We hope to resolve this amicably and quickly, and truly hope it's just a misunderstanding."

And now, it appears that all parties are satisfied. Good work fellas!
