Former Mexican pop superstar Gloria Trevi has been cleared of sex abuse charges after a court ruled there was not enough evidence against her.
Trevi was known as the Mexican Madonna
The verdict comes nearly five years after her arrest on charges of rape, kidnapping and corruption of minors.
Prosecutors had accused Ms Trevi and her manager, Sergio Andrade, of using the star's rebellious image to attract teenage girls, who were then abused.
Ms Trevi, known as the Mexican Madonna, was once one of Mexico's biggest stars.
During the 1990s, she sold more than five million records before her career was engulfed by scandal.
Cheers in courtroom
At Tuesday's hearing, a judge in the northern city of Chihuahua decided there was insufficient evidence against the 36-year-old singer and two members of her backing group, who were also absolved of the same charges.
Cheers erupted in the courtroom as he ordered their immediate release. Prosecutors now have five days to appeal against the ruling.
Separate legal proceedings against Mr Andrade will continue.
Ms Trevi fled Mexico in 1998, sparking a police search across Latin America.
She was eventually arrested in Brazil in January 2000 and extradited back to Mexico.
Ms Trevi said she was not bitter about her time in prison and wanted to dedicate herself to her son by Mr Andrade.
