Miley Cyrus Sued For Allegedly Stealing "We Can't Stop" From Reggae Song


The song at the heart of the lawsuit is called We Run Things, according to TMZ.

Miley Cyrus was sued for $300 million by a Jamaican reggae artist who says she stole his song.

According to legal documents obtained by ABC News, Caribbean songwriter Michael May, who performs under the name Flourgon, has sued the singer in NY federal court.

The suit claims the Jamaica-based songwriter, along with artist Michael May, wrote a song titled "We Run Things" back in 1988.

Singer Miley Cyrus performs during the 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year show honoring Fleetwood Mac at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan, New York, U.S., January 26, 2018.

On the track about exploring sexual and other personal freedom, Cyrus sings, "And we can't stop / We run things, things don't run we / Don't take nothing from nobody".

Flourgon's song in question has the lyrics "We run things / Things no run we" and Miley croons "We run things / Things don't run we" in her tune. The publication summed up the lawsuit by saying "Mr. Flourgon seems to thinks Miley's declaration of not stopping is the same thing as him saying he 'runs things'".

We Can't Stop, from Cyrus' album Bangerz, peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2013, with the single Wrecking Ball a major smash too.

The suit does not specify how much cash May is seeking from Cyrus, 25, but a statement from his lawyers to the News claims he wants $300 million, as well as a trial by jury and for the singer to quit profiting from "We Can't Stop".
