Post Malone is reportedly dismissing a deposition for a $350K court case involving his split from ex-girlfriend Ashlen Diaz. Both individuals face a lawsuit from Martorell Law, who Diaz hired to arrange palimony from Post (support for non-married split couples) after their 2018 breakup. Moreover, Martorell accused both of reaching a private agreement and cutting the firm from previously promised settlement percentages. Now, the law firm alleged that Malone did not respond to the deposition served in his home of Utah.
According to a Radar Online report on Friday (March 3), Martorell filed a motion for a default judgement against Post of $787,027.60 for failing to answer the court order. Also, they claim that his legal team “refused to accommodate the request and instead threatened to bring malicious prosecution charges … six times despite Martorell noting repeatedly that he heard the threat and respectfully requesting he not repeat it.” Then, his lawyers addressed the situation by maintaining that he did not receive the notice upon delivery and only recently became aware of it.
Post Malone Reportedly Dismisses Deposition
“Because of the nature of my work as a touring musician, I spend most of my time on the road traveling for work or performing on tour,” Post stated in his team’s filing. “Indeed, in 2022, I only spent an estimated combined total of 2 months in the State of Utah. I had no idea I had been sued, and I had no idea I was a party to this action. I did not learn about the existence of this lawsuit until on or around December 19, 2022, upon which my attorneys were swiftly notified.”
Meanwhile, this adds to the “rockstar” singer’s legal problems, such as a suit involving Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs. Among several other famous codefendants, he faced accusations of misleading promotion and dishonestly valuing digital products. Moreover, the suit is specifically against Yuga Labs Inc., the company behind the virtual pieces. Regardless of his legal woes, stay tuned to HNHH for the latest on Post Malone.
