Ocean launched his suit against Keith in February 2018 after Keith was reportedly seeking songwriting credits on songs Ocean claimed he was not involved in. Keith filed his own lawsuit in May. On Friday, both parties reportedly reached a “negotiated settlement" according to documents viewed by Pitchfork, with each person paying their own legal fees.
