Mark Salling’s former girlfriend Roxanne Gorzela has claimed against his estate for the $2.7 million (£1.9 million) settlement he owed her from 2011.
Roxanne accused Salling of forcing her to have unprotected sex, and in 2011 they came to an agreement that Salling had to pay her $2.7 million.
However, she claims she is still owed the settlement after seven years and has now filed a law suit against his estate for the money.
Salling died from suicide by hanging aged 35 earlier this year, after having pleading guilty to possession of child pornography.
It is unknown as to whether or not Roxanne will receive her settlement, as prior to his passing, Salling also agreed to pay $50,000 (£36,195) to each victim who submitted a formal restitution request in his child pornography case.
However, this agreement was scraped by the judge after his death.
Court documents stated: ‘For good cause show, it is hereby ordered that:
‘The government’s motion to dismiss the indictment pursuant to Rule 48 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure is granted. The indictment in the above referenced case is dismissed without prejudice. (sic)’
Federal prosecutors have previously asked to have the case dismissed, which would void any other agreements.
Former prosecutor Mann Medrano said at the time: ‘If that person dies accidentally or by suicide, the government can no longer proceed. Essentially, no defendant, no criminal prosecution.’
Salling was due to be sentenced for four to seven years for his crimes.
