Court records show the case was closed Friday after the Grammy Award-winning singer and Gate Five LLC agreed to drop it.

A lawyer for Gate Five says the terms are confidential. A lawyer for Beyonce hasn't returned a call seeking comment.

Beyoncé's lawyers had said she was within her rights to get out of the deal because Gate Five didn't have needed financing.
