LOS ANGELES (KNX) — The woman who sued former Los Angeles Rams linebacker Von Miller alleging he sent explicit photos of her to others, has dropped her lawsuit less than a month after filing.

The woman, known only as Jane Doe in the April 2020 complaint, accused the All-Pro linebacker of sending a nude picture of her to two other unknown celebrities "in a fit of jealousy, anger, and rage."

"This the b*** you want? You can have her dawg," the lawsuit claims Miller, then a member of the Denver Broncos, said in a May 2020 text message, attaching explicit photos of the plaintiff. The suit intended to recoup damages and bar Miller from sharing it again.

Doe alleged she consented to taking the images during sex and that both sides agreed not to share them.

Attorneys for the woman asked a judge to dismiss the case "with prejudice" last week but did not indicate if the parties had settled.

Miller, who recently signed a six-year deal with the Bills worth $120 million in free agency after winning a Super Bowl with the Rams, has not commented on the outcome.

"This case is a cautionary tale for young woman that date professional athletes like Miller that think laws do not apply because of fame, money, and power," Doe's attorneys said in April.
