Selena Gomez and her band, The Scene, might be in court very soon.
The pop singing sensation and her band have been named in a $1 million lawsuit, entertainment site GossipCop.com is reporting.
The suit alleges that SelGo’s 2010 hit “A Year Without Rain,” which she also recorded in Spanish, was ripped off from a 2005 tune called "Buy a Dog," by a band called Luce.
The songwriters—Tom Luce, Brian Kroll, Matt Blackett and Lawrence Riggs— say Gomez and The Scene used part of their song for the chorus of “A Year Without Rain.”
GossipCop.com quotes Luce stating that “the melodies in the chorus of both songs are virtually identical,” and that back in 2005 “Buy a Dog” received tons of airplay on Sirius/XM radio and other stations.
Luce claims that what Gomez, The Scene and the writers of “A Year Without Rain” have done amounts to an infringement of copyright.
SelGo and The Scene also made headline this week after performing their new single “Hit the Lights” on Dancing With the Stars.
With her long straight hair draping down her shoulders, Gomez donned a sparkly black and bronze tutu-style dress.
As Gomez sashayed from side to side while performing on stage, several dancers appeared in an upbeat routine in sync with SelGo’s lyrics.
The music group Train also took the stage, singing their hit “Drive By.” But it was famous percussionist Sheila E. who got everyone on their feet, shaking what their momma gave them.
Looking sexy in a tight bright pink ensemble, Sheila E. came on stage pounding a Conga drum and transformed the stage into a Brazilian-like carnival.
