Drake scored a legal victory after a $100,000 lawsuit against him over his 2018 tour was dismissed.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Sila Sveta, a design company, has voluntarily dismissed all claims against Drake and his company. They informed the court they are dropping the suit and closing the case.

Back in February, stage design company Sila Sveta sued Drake over an alleged $108,000 invoice. The designer claimed he was hired by the rapper to create a 3D stage for Drake’s 2018 “Aubrey & The Three Amigos” tour.

The design company said they went above and beyond to create the perfect stage for Drake. They worked hard to bring the exact visual elements for the stage (via large screens) to play behind Drake while he performed.

The company said they went to work on the project and created "a unique visual experience and to elevate design standards across the industry." But, they said at one point in the process, "they delayed the dates of the tour (requiring Sila Sveta staff to work of additional days)" and second, "radically changed the configuration, size, and shape of the screens on which the video content was to be played four times.

Silva Sveta said they had submitted an invoice in the amount of $108,000 but Drake’s team refused to pay.

Sila Sveta's website described the design, "The stage was located in the center of the arena and its surface was completely covered with a LED screen mounted on the floor and on its sides, which created a 3D surface to reproduce 3D illusions. The show also utilized drones, a flying Ferrari, dancers, pyrotechnics, and a light show. Inspired by the layout of a basketball court."

Prior to the dismissal, Drake filed documents saying he had paid the company in full and was considering counter-suing them for breach of contract.
