The songwriting credits for Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ have been amended to include three additional writers, the trio behind TLC’s 1999 hit ‘No Scrubs’.

Kandi Burruss, Tameka ‘Tiny’ Cottle and Kevin Briggs have all been credited as co-writers on the song’s listing on US copyright website ASCAP, after fans pointed out the similarities between the two tracks.

On Instagram, Tuesday, Burruss, who now appears on Bravo reality show ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’, shared a screencap of a story about the amended writing credits, tagging Cottle and including a dollar face emoji.

The song topped the Billboard charts for seven weeks in the US and stayed at number one in the UK singles chart for ten weeks, following its release in January.

Originally only Sheeran, Steve Mac and Snow Patrol guitarist Johnny McDaid were listed as the song's writers, but many commentators had pointed out the similarities between it and the TLC classic.

Currently Sheeran is embroiled in two different lawsuits over similarities between one of his tracks and that of another artist.

The family of Ed Townsend, who wrote Marvin Gaye’s ‘Let's Get It On’, have accused Sheeran of ripping off the song for ‘Thinking Out Loud’.

Last June songwriters Martin Harrington and Thomas Leonard also sued Sheeran claiming his song ‘Photographs’ had a similar structure to their song, ‘Amazing’, released by Matt Cardle in 2012. Both cases are still pending.
