"I wasn't sure if I was going to lose or not," she said as she walked out of the courtroom. She was surrounded by reporters, photographers, and more than 40 high school students who chanted her name.

Brophy's lawsuit was filed a year after the rapper's 2016 mixtape was released. He referred to himself as a "family man with minor children."
