The musician "has never had any sexual encounter" with the woman and the allegations were "simply meritless," said the spokesperson for Snoop Dogg.  

"They appear to be part of a self-enrichment shakedown scheme to extort Snoop Dogg right before he performs during this Sunday's Super Bowl halftime show," the spokesperson added.  

"What is clear is that this shakedown scheme is disgraceful. This attempt to use the courts to advance this scheme is shameful too, and does a disservice to real victims who deserve to be believed," the spokesperson further said.
