Beyoncé, Jay Z and Timbaland vs. Mitsou

Beyoncé, Jay Z and Timbaland have been hit with a lawsuit claiming that their 2013 platinum-selling hit “Drunk in Love” was lifted from Mitsou's (a.k.a. Monika Miczura) 1995, Hungarian folk song “Bajba, Bajba Pelem.” Miczura said she never approved of the sample, according to TMZ, and that the Carters butchered her song about hopelessness and turned it into a track “to evoke foreign eroticism.”

She’s suing for unspecified damages. As Bey, Jay and Timbo's legal teams gear up for a battle, check out other music stars who've been hit with lawsuits. Read on.
