Actor-turned-singer Kevin Costner has dropped a multi-million dollar lawsuit against a music promoter he accused of reneging on a deal to book shows for his band. The "Bodyguard" star fronts the Kevin Costner Band in between making movies and signed an agreement with bosses at Mahee Worldwide Ventures Inc. to secure five concerts a year for the group and keep their website updated.

But the deal turned sour and Costner sued the company in a Los Angeles court in 2007, alleging the promoters failed to honor the contract to support his music career. However, the $8.5 million (5.7 million pound sterling) case has now been dismissed, according to court filings lodged last week. No further details were given in the legal documents.

The lawsuit had been delayed for years after Mahee's bosses filed for bankruptcy. Costner now jams with rock band Modern West.
