Seems like these days singer/songwriter Chris Brown can’t catch a break! Recently in the news it was reported that he allegedly tried to cover up an attack made by his dog on his housekeeper.
According to TMZ, the housekeeper is suing Chris Brown with claims he is responsible for her injuries that happened at his residence back in December.
If that wasn’t enough, Brown has now been hit with another lawsuit! This time for copyright infringement for his song “Privacy” which sampled song “Tight Up Skirt” by artist Red Rat, allegedly.
According to reports over at Music Business Worldwide, a music publishing company based in the UK named “Greensleeves Publishing LTD” has sued Chris Brown alongside “Sony Music Entertainment” filed on July 2 claiming that Chris Brown’s team “took the core musical feature” of Red Rats’ track and used it without permission.
The company is suing Brown for damages in the amount of $1.5 million, to be determined at trial plus interest.
According to Music Business Worldwide, “Chris Brown “took the core musical feature” of the track and “used it prominently” in Privacy “without permission”.”
