SOOOO.. Our girl Beyonce is being sued for $20 Million!
Beyonce ALLEGEDLY stole a famous (I say famous loosely) recorded line from a dead New Orleans rapper and then sampled it in her song, "Formation," without permission.
The estate of Anthony Barré -- aka Messy Mya -- just filed suit against Beyonce for allegedly using a small, but memorable, piece from his 2010 video "A 27 Piece Huh?" and sampling it in "Formation!"
They're claiming that Messy Mya's line "I like that" was stolen from the video to help better depict the New Orleans feel.
Barré, a YouTube star, was shot and killed in 2010.
HERE COMES THE SHADE!! The estate also claims they tried talking to Beyonce about the sample ... but says she blew them off.
Now, the estate is asking for more than $20,000,000 in back royalties and other damages for using some of his final recorded words.
Listen to BOTH examples here and tell me what you think!
