Swizz Beatz & Timbaland Resolve Dispute with Triller Over Verzuz Acquisition Payments

Swizz Beatz and Timbaland have settled their lawsuit with Triller concerning payments related to the acquisition of Verzuz by the social media platform.

The lawsuit was initiated by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland in August, following the sale of Verzuz to Triller a year and a half earlier. As part of the acquisition agreement, Triller was supposed to pay $18 million by March 2022 and an additional $1 million per month for 10 months. However, the duo claimed in their lawsuit that they did not receive the full payment, only receiving a few late payments. This discrepancy led them to take legal action to secure the funds owed from the acquisition.
