When it was first announced that One Direction were being sued for mysterious reasons in Ireland, our imaginations went into overdrive. Was Niall taking the rest of the band to court over his lacklustre birthday cakes? Was Harry looking for a jolly to Ireland? Was a fan suing the band for raising her expectations in men?
We were intrigued.
Well, it's now been revealed that the band - including Zayn, how retro, are actually being sued for a quite serious reason as a singer/songwriter is claiming that the band plagiarised 'Story Of My Life' from one of his own tracks.
If you've been in the fandom long enough, you'll know that the boys have been accused of this kind of thing before. But, this time Harry, Niall, Louis, Liam, Zayn AND their writing team Jamie Scott, John Ryan and Julian Bunetta are all involved.
The man in question is called Dave Lewis, and the track he reckons 1D ripped off is titled 'Swimming Pool.' There's still not much information to go on here, but you can take a listen of the track below and let us know if you hear any similarities.
Hmm. We're not seeing it to be honest. But you do you, Dave Lewis. You do you.
