This isn't the first time the pop superstar is being accused of taking someone else's musical work and making it her own.

This isn't the first time the pop superstar is being accused of taking someone else's musical work and making it her own.

“I believe my copyrighted musical work has been infringed upon,” a 27-year-old artist named Javon contends in a new, handwritten,  federal lawsuit.

“I am seeking the earnings she has made from the copied record,” he writes in the legal papers. “Also live performances, etc. I would like money compensation of $3 million, or whichever is greater,” he states.

Javon alleges the tune  of Bey's first single off her 2013 album “copies my song and artwork. I have worked with [Beyonce's] background singer Crissy Collins as a background singer for another artist. I sent her the material I wrote after releasing it," he writes.

He also claims producer and singer, The Dream, sings the same melody he sings in his song “XOXO.” The Dream  is listed as a co-writer and co-producer of Knowles’ “XO.”

We wonder where this case will end up.
