Well, Jessie J, you know you’ve really arrived once you’re accused of copyright infringement through the American courts.

A Californian singer called Will Loomis says that Ms J’s hit ‘Domino’ is very similar to his 2008 song ‘Bright Red Chords’.

Loomis’s legal rep Chris Arledge told reporters: “Mr Loomis never consented to the use of his song and we look forward to obtaining an appropriate remedy from the court for this clear infringement”.

A plethora of people are listed as songwriters on ‘Domino’, including J herself, real name Jessica Cornish. The lawsuit names the singer and various subsidiaries of her label Universal Music as defendants.
