Radar previously reported that Grimmie, 22, was gunned down during a concert meet-and-greet over the summer. James Loibl, 27, shot The Voice singer twice during his brutal attack.

Adam Levine, her mentor, offered to pay for the entire funeral shortly after the news broke.

Six months later, her dad Albert filed a lawsuit against the event organizer, AEG, and the owner of the Plaza Live Theater (where she was shot), claiming that they could have prevented Christina's death through better security.

The companies fired back that his claims were false, and that they are not at fault.

He pursued the wrongful death and negligence lawsuit regardless — and is still seeking financial compensation from the companies for what he called their “cost-cutting” security.
