Chris Brown sued for taking fan’s hat

DALLAS, TX — Chris Brown is being sued for $2,750 over an unreturned hat, reports TMZ.

The hat being belonged to Marq Stevenson, who claims he gave it to somebody in Brown’s entourage to get it signed by the ‘Loyal’ singer at a 2015 concert in Dallas, Texas, last year but that it was never returned.

But, instead of getting the hat back with a freshly inked signature, he claims he never saw the hat again. Instead of the hat, Marq says that he was bullied by some people from Chris’ posse, says TMZ.

Stevenson now apparently wants $25 for the hat, $225 for his concert ticket and $2,500 for the bullying.

Brown played in Dallas at least twice last year, on February 6 with his Between The Sheets Tour, and again on September 10 for his One Hell Of A Nite Tour.

Chris is currently in court for a lot of different things. His California neighbors are looking to file a suit against the singer after he was illegally driving around the suburban area on an ATV.

And to make matters worse, he’s reportedly being dragged back to court by his daughter’s mother, Nia Guzman. Nia is demanding $15,000 a month instead of the $2,500 she already gets.

US judge dismisses Taylor Swift ‘Shake It Off’ copyright lawsuit

LOS ANGELES — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing singer Taylor Swift of stealing lyrics for her song ‘Shake It Off’ on Tuesday ruling the phrases in question were not sufficiently original to merit copyright protection.

Songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler brought the suit last fall, arguing that the chorus of the song borrowed from their 2001 composition, ‘Playas Gon’ Play’.

In his ruling, Judge Michael W Fitzgerald held that combining the phrases, ‘Playas gonna play’ and ‘haters gonna hate,’ does not entail sufficient originality to warrant copyright protection, Variety reported.

Swift’s 2014 song reached No 1 on the pop charts and marked her evolution from country to pop music.

Swift’s lyrics from the chorus of ‘Shake It Off’ are, ‘the players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.’

Attorneys for Swift asked US District Judge Michael Fitzgerald in January to dismiss the case.

“In order for such short phrases to be protected under the Copyright Act, they must be more creative than the lyrics at issue here,” Fitzgerald ruled, according to court papers.

The songwriters who sued Swift did not allege Swift’s song stole musical elements, the judge said, and phrases about players and haters existed in pop culture before 2001.
