Singer-songwriter Jessie Braham is suing the pop star claiming that her song is a rip-off of his 2013 single called “Haters gone hate”.

In a lawsuit he’s filed, Braham says that he’s the first one who came up with the lyrics Swift used on her “1989” lead cut. On his own song, he sings lines like “Haters gone hater, players gone play/ Watch out for them fakers, they’ll fake you everyday, reports tmz.com.

He points out that similar phrase is repeated more than 70 times on the 25-year-old’s track. He’s asking for $42 million from her and wants his name added to any new prints of “Shake it off”.

This isn’t the first legal issue Swift has to deal with in the past few days. Earlier this week, she counter-sued a former radio DJ named David Mueller who allegedly groped her during a meet-and-greet.
