US artist Will Loomis reckons Jessie stole his melody and now he wants $150,000 in damages...

Jessie J
Brit-singer and The Voice UK judge Jessie J is facing a serious copyright lawsuit after American artist Will Loomis claims Domino is too similar to his track Bright Red Chords.

Will Loomis' people claim that Domino contains "substantially similar compositional elements" to his song, which was released by his band Loomis & the Lust in 2009.

His lawyers claim that Jessie and her co-writers "wilfully infringed" on copyrighted material and sold "millions of copies of their derivative work". Uh oh!

Jessie and her team haven't released an official statement yet, but we can't imagine they're very happy right now!

Loomis is now seeking $150,000 in damages.

He said on Facebook: "When I wrote this melody in my garage I never imagined it would be sung for the King and Queen of England and I especially never imagined it would be sung by Jessie J."

We've posted the two videos below so you can check out the 'similarities' for yourself!
