Jay-Z Private Plane Suit Grounded Permanently

When it comes to dealing with pesky lawsuits, Jay-Z's legal blueprint might very well be to settle.

At least that's the thinking after a private jet company dropped a lawsuit it brought against Jigga in June 2010 for failing to pay a hefty $137,485 bill for multiple flights around the world.

Air Platinum Club sued Jay-Z in the Court of Miami claiming he racked up an estimated 55 hours of first-class service on one of its private jets but only forked over cash for 37 hours' worth in addition to owing dough for catering, a trip to the U.K., and taxes and fees.

But according to court docs obtained by E! News, the luxury travel firm's complaint was dismissed, though it's unknown whether the two sides reached a confidential settlement.

Attorneys for Jay-Z could not be reached for comment.

But it's good news for the rapper, who these days is putting his money where his heart is.

Jay-Z is set to become the first solo hip-hop artist to ever headline New York City's legendary Carnegie Hall; his concerts scheduled for tonight and tomorrow will benefit the United Way and his own Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.
