Paulina Rubio Settles Breach of Contract Lawsuit

Paulina Rubio reached a “friendly agreement” of a lawsuit for breach of contract over a missed concert in Colombia, the Mexican pop star’s lawyer told Efe Monday.

Attorney Rey Dorta declined to reveal the terms of the agreement because they are “confidential.”

The accord between the two parties was reached and presented before Miami-Dade County Judge Abby Cynamon following a court case that went on for more than three years with several postponements.

At a brief hearing that Rubio did not attend, the attorneys for the plaintiffs and for the defense of the “Boys Will Be Boys” vocalist told the judge that they had come to an agreement.

The next step, Dorta said, consists of “filling out the official documents and filing them with the court, with the inclusion of a statement signed by the two parties that the case is closed and the lawsuit withdrawn.”

Miami-based CMG Entertainment, the Joint Cultural Fund of the Government of Boyaca, Colombia, and the Viva la Musica Cultural Corporation sued Rubio in November 2010 for roughly $1 million (729,852 euros) for breach of contract in not showing up for a concert in the Colombian city of Tunja.

The “Golden Girl” had always said in her defense that she was unable to appear at the concert because flights to Tunja were impeded by bad weather conditions.
