Newport, California - A legal spat between the lead singer of Loomis and the Lust and UK songbird Jessie-J says her latest single Domino is a direct rip-off from a track in his 2008 smash hit music video Bright Red Chords.
It sees musician Will Loomis filing a compensation lawsuit demanding a jury trial 'and at least $150,000'.
Tonight some very ruffled Britsh feathers are flying around furiously as Jessie-J denied any knowledge of the copyright scam.
"Will Loomis must be hallucinating," Jessie-J fanclub cheerleader Lamorna Angostura-Bitters tweeted from her mobile in the middle of the M25 as news of the lawsuit broke.
"Yeah, some jealous old hasbeen, thinks she's stolen his mojo; gotta be a never-wozzer the poor deluded guy!"
Meanwhile at her online fanzine thousands of messages of support are maintaining that Domino was written by Jessie-J in tandem with Lukasz Gottwald ('Dr Luke'), Kelly Claude, Martin Sandberg and Henry Walter.
Its US release saw it climb to the Number Six spot in nation's Top 100 following a December 2011 UK debut twhen it went straight to Number 1.
It can also be downloaded from the Queen's own Diamond Jubilee website where 24 year-old Jessie's Buckingham Palace convert performance is available online.
Meanwhile in Newport, California, a spokesperson for Loomis And The Lust declined to respond in kind to what has been described as 'horrid' British tweets.
"Our client will not lower himself to that level of badinage," a legal source chuckled.
"Still, pretty funny that reference to hallucination! ould add another fifty grand to the damages bill."
