"Sharon pulled out of participating in the music video the day of the shoot after months of conversations, in-person meetings with myself and the director, two dance rehearsals and even had her own ideas that she shared with myself and my team for the collaborative on the video," Chanel explained, per the Rolling Stone.
The rapper, who said the song and its accompanying video were an "homage'' to the actress, continued: "To be frank, the entire production team and myself were surprised when she walked off. Nonetheless, the shoot proceeded."
The lawsuit was settled "to the mutual satisfaction of the parties," per a filing by Chanel's attorney.
