The Norwegian-born star, also known as Frida, filed a suit against the executives of the Yantorp Qigong resort, a facility that specializes in Chinese medicine and meditation. In the lawsuit, Reuss stated she had loaned $6.9 million to executives in order to fund the construction of a Buddhist temple on Yantorp's property.
Owners of the health resort are refuting the ABBA singer's claims and are firm in their statement that her "loan" was actually a hefty donation.
Reuss' legal team asked for the Yantorp Qigong resort to be pushed into bankruptcy to recoup the sum, but a judge at Malmo District Court in Malmo, Sweden ruled against her. The judge also ordered Reuss and her partner Henry Smith to pay $22,500 in legal costs.
Reuss' lawyers plan to continue fighting the case.
