One week after a woman who had accused him of rape admitted that she'd made the whole thing up, singer-songwriter Conor Oberst has now dropped the federal libel lawsuit he filed against the woman in February.
Oberst had filed the lawsuit against Joanie Faircloth in February after she wrote a comment on an xoJane article accusing Oberst of raping her years earlier. Last week, Oberst's publicist released a statement from Faircloth in which she said that none of what she had claimed was true. She also apologized to Oberst.
Oberst filed the libel suit in February. He issued a statement last week saying he accepted the apology and that he looks forward "to happier times as we all move forward with our lives."
