No news on whether the potential lawsuit will be settled or proceed.

Ironically, Rivera was recently recognized for her "altruist efforts against domestic violence" by Los Angeles non-profit organization Amanecer Community Services, according to

In an interview with a Los Angeles radio station on June 8, the day after the incident, Rivera said, "The only thing I can say is that I'm not very happy about it, but I do take responsibility for what I've done."

Paz later insisted he never threw the beer can, but simply raised his hand hoping to meet the singer.
