Justin Bieber’s long list of legal issues just got shorter. has exclusively learned that his team settled a $100,000 lawsuit with a clothing manufacturer and the case has been dismissed.

Bieber’s merchandising team, “Bravado International Group Merchandising Services, Inc.,” sued Gianni Giannulli of Wall Celebrity LLC in January 2014 for $100,000 after he allegedly refused to sell Bieber goods – and then called the pop star an “idiot” online.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, “In October 2012 Bravado agreed to license Giannulli the right to sell certain Merchandise and Giannulli agreed to pay in advance against royalties to Bravado of no less than $200,000,” but he only paid about half that.

Worse, the documents claim, Giannulli was “impairing and negatively affecting the Property and Bravado’s rights in the property and reputation of Justin Beiber by making negative statements on the Internet about Beiber including calling him an ‘Idiot’.”

Giannulli allegedly wrote online that he had not paid Bravado company the $100,000 he owed them because “retailers no longer want to carry Justin’s merchandise because he’s an idiot.”

Apparently that’s all water under the bridge now because both sides reached a settlement on April 14.

The case is dismissed without prejudice with the right to reopen if Giannulli fails to consummate the settlement within 30 days.
