Singer Tulisa claims she co-wrote lyrics for “Scream & Shout” and is suing Will.I.Am for compensation now that it’s a world-wide hit, reports The Sun.
Tulisa planned on releasing the single, which was originally titled “I Dont Give A ****,” after working on it with Will’s right-hand man Jean Baptiste, but will took it and recorded the smash with Britney instead.
“Tulisa is still fuming with Will for taking the song off her,” says a source. “The fact the song blew up only makes it worse. She’s well within her right to claim some of the publishing money. If she proves the words are hers, she could get a huge pay-out.”
She claims she wrote “When you hear this in the club, you gonna turn this **** up.”
The total amount will depend on what percentage of the song she wrote. IF she wins, she’ll also be listed as one of the song’s writers.
Snooze ya lose, sista!
