Sean Kingston Rape Lawsuit: Settled Out of Court

by at .

Sean Kingston has settled with a 22-year-old girl who accused the singer and his former bodyguard of gang rape back in 2010, sources have confirmed.

The musician settled not because he's admitting guilt, but so he doesn't have to deal with a court battle on his upcoming tour or during his album release.

Basically, the girl who accused Sean Kingston of rape was paid a fraction of the $5 million she asked for in order to make the suit go away ASAP.

The exact amount paid to Carissa Capeloto has not been established.

Sources close to Kingston say he thinks he would have won the case outright if it went to trial, the same way he avoided criminal charges three years ago.

As one source told TMZ, "Her story wasn't consistent."

"She told various stories throughout interviews with police. Her friend's story wasn't consistent with hers. The medical report had no indications of force."

Kingston acknowledged having sex with the girl, who was 19 at the time, after a concert he did with Justin Bieber, but said the sex was consensual.

She claims she went to his room for a meet-and-greet and then was physically placed on top of a nude Kingston, then raped by Sean and two others.

The lawsuit is expected to be dismissed shortly.
