Beyonce sued for USD 7 million

Pop sensation Beyonce is being sued by a backing singer for USD 7 million after it was claimed the star had plagiarised her music to write her hit song “XO”.


The 33-year-old star and her company Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records have been taken to court over her hit “XO” after Ahmad Lane filed a federal lawsuit claiming she had stolen the music for the track, reported Radar online.

Ahmad alleged that Beyonce’s current backing singer Chrissy Collins gave her a copy of his song “XOXO” after he passed on the track to her when the pair were working together for another artist.

The “Crazy In Love” hitmaker also stated that Ahmad hasn’t filed a “copyright registration” for his track and asked for the USD 7 million payment to be dropped.
