Prior to ‘Dancing with the Stars’, William Levy had a pending lawsuit that was filed in July 2011, in which he was sued for sexual battery of an underage girl. It is now reported that the lawsuit has been dismissed.
Last year, Levy split from his actress wife Elizabeth Gutierrez, the mother of his two kids, Christopher, 5, and Kailey, 2. The exes met in 2003 on the set of Protagonistas de Novela 2 and broke up last year. There were rumors of infidelity and particularly a nasty story that Levy allegedly assaulted a minor, Karla Alvarez, during a July 2010 encounter at a Glendale, California, hotel room.
The actor denied any wrongdoing, saying the girl, 17 at that time, told him she was of age, and responded with a counter-suit for defamation and extortion, claiming that the girl in question offered to not pursue the issue in return for $950,000.
Levy stated that legal authorities “conducted a complete and thorough investigation of the allegations and concluded that there was no probable cause sufficient to proceed in a criminal action against Levy.”
The case was voluntarily dismissed by Alvarez, with the plaintiff’s attorney declaring, “The parties have resolved their claims in the above captioned case….plaintiff K.A. requests that the Court dismiss this action with prejudice.”
