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 <g data-gr-id="12">were</g> working together for another artist. However, the Grammy Award-winner has vehemently denied the claims in court documents. “The two works at issue are entirely different songs that share no lyrical or musical similarity, other than perhaps the letters X and O,” the response read.
