Justin Bieber has reached a settlement deal with a man who accused him of assault in Cleveland, Ohio in 2016. Tobias Cannon filed suit against JB last year, claiming Bieber attacked him after an NBA Finals game in the city and hurled racial slurs at him during the incident.

The pop superstar denied any wrongdoing and claimed he acted in self-defence, and the case was due to go to trial next month. However, court papers obtained by The Blast reveal the two parties have since agreed to put an end to the legal dispute, signing off on a private settlement on Thursday.

As part of the deal, Cannon, who alleged he had suffered mental and emotional injuries as a result of the brawl, will file documents within 45 days to have the suit dismissed.
