Superstar singer, Justin Timberlake, has been caught in the web of discord with the Canadian theatrical performance company, Cirque du Soleil.
On Thursday, Timberlake was sued for claims that his hit song “Don’t Hold the Wall” copied part of one of Cirque du Soleil’s original compositions without permission.
The lawsuit filed in federal court in New York claimed Timberlake borrowed from the song “Steel Dream,” which was originally on Cirque du Soleil’s 1997 album, “QUIDAM.”
Timberlake’s song appeared on his 2013 double album “20/20,” which has sold more than two million copies.
The suit seeks a minimum of $800,000 in damages for copyright infringement.
In addition to Timberlake, the lawsuit also named among the defendants the producer Timbaland – real name Timothy Mosley – who helped write the song, and Sony Music Entertainment, which released the album.
