A Los Angeles judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by Shakira's ex-boyfriend seeking a portion of the singer's profits.

Los Angeles superior court judge Abraham Khan issued his ruling on Thursday. Lawyers for the pop star argued that the case should be filed in her native Colombia or the Bahamas, where she currently claims residency.

Shakira's ex-boyfriend, Antonio de la Rua, sued her in April in Los Angeles stating he was instrumental in her transformation into a global star. His lawsuit claimed that Shakira has not paid him pursuant to their business contracts since 2010. The pair broke up in 2011.

Shakira's attorneys sought the dismissal of the lawsuit in California because one of the pair's disputed agreements is governed by Colombian law.
