Conor Oberst no longer suing the woman who accused him of rape

Conor Oberst has dropped his libel lawsuit against Joanie Faircloth, the woman who accused Oberst of rape before later retracting the charge. Last week, Faircloth issued a statement recanting her accusation in an XO Jane comment thread, saying everything she had said was “100% false” and made up “to get attention.” Oberst also issued a statement last week, saying that he accepted her apology but also that the scrutiny had been “extremely difficult and stressful for me personally and for those I love.”

Oberst had been seeking $1.2 million from Faircloth and had said he would donate any money he received to charities that benefit female victims of domestic violence.
