Selena Gomez Sued For $1 Million
Looks like Miss Selena Gomez’s name has been added into a $1 million lawsuit claiming one of her hit songs is the work of pure plagiarism.
The 19-year-old singer’s is being sued for speculation that her song's chorus in "A Year Without Rain” is an exact copy of the band Luce’s 2005 track, “Buy A Dog.”
The band members and plaintiffs include Tom Luce, Brian Kroll, Matt Blackett, and Lawrence Riggs and are also suing the Disney star’s co-writers Lindy Robbins and Toby Gad.
Courthouse News Service reports that, "the melodies in the chorus of both songs are virtually identical," and that the tune "was a No. 1 record on several radio stations around the United States, including WRLT in Nashville and KFOG in San Francisco, at both of which it was among the 10 most played records for the entire year of 2005".
Selena’s reps have yet to comment on the lawsuit.
