Ariana Grande Hit with Plagiarism Suit by Canadian Songwriter

Yet another pop sensation has been slapped with a lawsuit. 

This time, Ariana Grande is under fire for her 2015 chart-topping track "One Last Time," which songwriter and resident Canadian Alex Greggs claims was embodied after the Skye Stevens' 2012 single he wrote titled "Takes All Night."

In documents obtained by E! News, Greggs alleges that "One Last Time" and "Takes All Night" bear similarities "so striking that it is highly likely the works were not created independently of one another," noting the chorus and lyrics of Grande's version as a primary catalyst for the legal action. 

According to legal docs, Greggs says Grande and producer David Guetta stole the music and lyrics of his song's chorus.

He is demanding royalties from Grande's track.

Greggs is a former band member of Love Inc and has written for or with acts such as 'N Sync, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, M.I.A., Michael Jackson, and Ricky Martin.
