Recently embattled EDM group Krewella, now comprised of just Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf, have finally settled their lawsuit with former member Rain Man. Once one of electronic music’s brightest up and coming acts, Krewella shot to super stardom in the blink of an eye before their epic dissolution last year, when Kris Trindl (Rain Man) filed a lawsuit against the sisters. In his suit Trindl alleged that the Yousafs kicked him out of the group in part due to his path to alcoholism recovery, and it wasn’t long before the internet hate started flowing, almost unilaterally scolding Jahan and Yasmine. Now, almost a year later, Forbes
reports that Krewella have settled their $5 million suit with Trindl. Jahan Yousaf didn’t delve into the details of the settlement, but spoke out regarding sexism in music, as she is known to do.
“There was a lot of backlash. People went immediately into believing everything that they read… People wanted to immediately jump to these conclusions that ‘Of course they’re women, they use their sex to sell the group. They manipulate men in the industry. They can’t be trusted.’ And those were the constant themes that we kept seeing.”
In addition, Yasmine shared her thoughts about the lack of women on festival lineups: “We need to change the dialogue to make it OK for women to try the same exact things that men are,” said Yasmine, 23. “I think in time you’ll see an equal amount of women on these lineups.”
