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.
Rihanna really want to help clear Chris Borwn‘s name in court!
As you all know he’s in trouble for their “domestic dispute” that happend in 2009 and now the rapper has tested positive for weed after doing a drugs test. He’s been doing community service in his home state of Virginia but now he could be facing charges too.
Sources have said:
“Rihanna has spoken to Chris since his progress reporting hearing on Monday afternoon and offered her continued support. Rihanna told Chris she would go to court on November 1 for his court appearance and tell Judge Patricia Schnegg that she shouldn’t set a hearing to decide if he violated terms of his probation because he has accepted responsibility for his actions and has apologized to RiRi on multiple occasions.”
She also wants the judge for forget about his fling with Mary Jane:
“Rihanna would also tell the judge that Chris isn’t the same person now, as he was on that fateful night when he assaulted her. Rihanna doesn’t care if she is criticized for standing by Chris, she genuinely loves him.”
Rihanna is mad at the end of the day how could you forgive him for doing that to her.
On Chris Brown‘s probation hearing Monday in Los Angeles, the Judge Patricia Schnegg said that Chris failed the drugs test that they did on him during his probation that he was doing inVirginia.

“You are not an average person sitting in a living room. You are not only in the public eye, but you are on probation.”
When they tested Chris again he was positive for marijuana, but Chris does have a medical marijuana card in California meaning he can only smoke Marijuana in 49 states.
Chris was told he needs to attend a hearing on November 1st to look at his behavior.
