Christina Aguilera - Christina Aguilera Sued For Using Dave Cortez Sample

Christina Aguilera has hit the headlines once again after a federal lawsuit filed in New York alleges that she sampled Dave Cortez without paying for the privilege.
Christina Aguilera's record company Sony Music are being sued because they did not pay for a sample used in the 30-year-old's hit song 'Ain't No Other Man', reports Tmz.com.Aguilera's 2006 song was produced by the hip-hop guru Dj Premier and reached No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100. It sampled the 1968 track 'Hippy Skippy Moon Strut' by the American pop and R&B organist Cortez. The musician's publishing company TurfAmerica claim that they purchased the exclusive rights to the song in 2004 but Sony Music made a deal with two other companies, 'Codigo Music' and 'The Clyde Otis Music Group'. In the lawsuit, TurfAmerica is reportedly asking for Sony to void the other deals whilst also seeking punitive damages.
Although Christina Aguilera is unlikely to become involved in the lawsuit, it adds to the recent negative press that the singer has been receiving. After her slip-up at the 'Super Bowl' last month, the 30-year-old was arrested on 1st March 2011 for public intoxication.
