Tulisa to sue Will.i.am over royalties of Britney Spears' hit 'Scream and Shout'

London, Feb. 12 (ANI): Tulisa Contostavlos, who is claiming that she wrote some of the lyrics of the smash hit by will.i.am and Britney Spears' 'Scream and Shout' is planning to file a lawsuit against the Black Eyed Peas member over song royalties.

The song, which topped charts in most of Europe, is now worth a lot in royalties and the 24-year-old singer wants a share of the profits, the Daily Mail reported.

Tulisa is now said to be suing the US recording artist even though the track is credited as being written by Jef Martens, Will, and Jean Baptiste.

According to The Sun newspaper, the N-Dubz has started legal proceedings and feels that she is entitled to a slice of the estimated two million single sales.

One of the lyrics that she allegedly wrote was, "When you hear this in the club, you'd better turn this s**t up."

Will.i.am already confessed last year when releasing the track in November, that Tulisa had recorded a version of the song adding that the two brothers from Belgium called Lazy Jay, who made the track didn't like her version and so asked Will to record on it instead. (ANI)
