LOS ANGELES-Miley Cyrus is reportedly being sued for $300 million over her chart topping hit "We Can't Stop". Which is admittedly very similar to a line Cyrus sings in We Can't Stop, which reads "We run things, things don't run we".More news: US House Republicans Say Probe Found No Collusion Between Russia, Trump
The latest reports come after the dancehall artist, who is said to have filed the complaints Tuesday, accused Cyrus and her hit song of unlawfully taking from his "unique and creative lyrical phraseology in order to establish an overarching and pervasive theme... in the realm of self-discovery and self-governing".
The former "Voice" judge's track was a massive success upon its release in 2013, and charted in more than a dozen countries, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. Cyrus probably has it lying around on a night stand next to her collection of Hannah Montana DVDs, right?More news: Warren: 'I'm not running for president'
The pop starlet has faced accusations in the past of appropriating black culture, especially when she twerked her behind against singer Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2013.
The suit does not specify how much cash May is seeking from Cyrus, 25, but a statement from his lawyers to the News claims he wants $300 million, as well as a trial by jury and for the singer to quit profiting from "We Can't Stop".More news: Man United vs Sevilla: how and where to watch
"We Can't Stop" coincidentally only reached number two on the USA singles chart because it was held back by Thicke's "Blurred Lines", which was targeted in a landmark lawsuit.
