With her recent misfortunes continuing to pile up, Christina Aguilera has been named in a newly filed federal lawsuit submitted by TufAmerica.
According to TMZ, the “Burlesque” beauty and co-defendant Sony Music are accused of paying the wrong distributor for rights to sample the 1968 tune “Hippy Skippy Moon Strut” in her Grammy-winning song “Ain’t No Other Man”.
TufAmerica is hoping to nullify other publishers’ claims to the rights while also demanding punitive damages after Sony arranged to sample the song via deals with Condigo Mysic and the Clyde Otis Music Group.The lawsuit comes just after Aguilera and boyfriend Matthew Rutler were arrested for alcohol related charges – though Christina will not be prosecuted for her misdemeanor offense.
Of the incident, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department spokesperson Steve Whitmore told, “She was not capable of taking care of herself. … She was incapacitated, not belligerent, but just intoxicated.”
