Co-executive producer of Femme Fatale, Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald is counter-suing The Bellamy Brothers after they publicly said “Hold It Against Me” is a rip-off of their 1979 hit “If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me?”, according to

Dr. Luke also says the Bellamy Brothers’ ridicule was “a publicity stunt aimed to increase their record sales … and to combat their dwindling relevance.”


Not only does Luke want damages for defamation, he wants a court order stating once and for all Britney’s song has nothing to do with The Bellamy Brothers’ version. An apology!

The Bellamy Bros. rep didn’t comment.

Good for Dr. Luke for standing up for himself. The songs sounds nothing alike. I say good on Luke for suing them. Would you hold it against him?
