Beyonce is in trouble this week after the slain Youtube sensation, Messy Mya’s estate has sued the megastar for using the deceased personality’s video sample in the beginning and in the middle of her song, “Formation”.
Messy Mya, legal name Anthony Barre, was gunned down in New Orleans in 2010 but his Youtube videos still remain popular to this day. His estate says they didn’t even receive so much as a tag from Beyonce’s camp after lifting his audio and sampling it in the first single from her wildly popular, “Lemonade” album. They are seeking $20 Million in the lawsuit.
