Justin Bieber and Usher are being sued over allegedly stealing the songSomebody to Love from fellow musician De Rico.
De Rico and his music partner Mareio Overton, say that the two singers were granted the copyright to the song for De Rico’s 2008 album My Story II.
It’s not looking good for Bieber and Usher as the lawsuit has stated that they took the song around major labels and artists, like Usher.
This is what reports have said:
“Without any authority or consent. [Manager Jonetta Patton] and Usher conspired with songwriters and producers…to directly copy Plaintiffs’ song Somebody to Love, intending to appropriate Plaintiffs’ intellectual property as their own.”
The story has said that Usher recorded the song as a demo for his Raymond v. Raymond album before teen singer Justin got his little hands on it what then ended up as a remix of the song in 2010.
De Rico and Mareio are now wanting $10 million dollars in damages for alleged copyright infringement so it look’s like the singers will soon have to pay out a lot of money.
