Ty Dolla $ign and YG settle with soccer star over club beating

Rappers Ty Dolla $Ign and Yg have reportedly paid more than $100,000 to settle a lawsuit with Australian soccer star Nelly Yoa.

Yoa accused the rappers of punching and kicking him in the head at Eve Nightclub in Melbourne in 2015 when he reportedly refused to leave the VIP area. He claimed he suffered physical and mental injuries and lost out on a chance to make a "substantial income" under a prospective soccer deal with the Melbourne City Football Club. However, the British athlete was previously the victim of a machete attack in 2010, injuring his arm, that also stalled his career.

Now, Yoa has reportedly told TMZ.com that he has settled with the Paranoid rapper and YG for a "low six-figure amount" as the musicians fought to keep the matter out of court.

The settlement came after Yoa issued two letters to Ty and YG as a formality to an impending lawsuit.
