The members of singing trio Destiny's Child are embroiled in a bitter battle with a man who claims he wrote their hit song Survivor.

Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams have filed a $5 million (GBP3.1 million) lawsuit against TERRENCE ROBINSON and others. Robinson says he wasn't paid for his contribution to the 2001 hit.

The fight stems from when the songwriter and his legal team sent out a press release to local media saying they were ready to file a copyright infringement lawsuit against the band.

The BOOTYLICIOUS beauties have branded his actions extortion and slander.
