According to legal documents seen by The Daily Mail, Disclosure, Sam Smith, AlunaGeorge, and Eliza Doolittle are being sued over song lyrics.
The lawsuit was filed by a songwriter named Katie Farrah Sopher. She claims that her abusive ex-boyfriend, Sean Sawyers, stole her notebook of song lyrics. Sopher says that Sawyers sold her lyrics to contacts in the music industry. She also claims that the songs are about the abuse she endured during their relationship.
Sopher claims that she wrote Disclosure and Sam Smith’s “Latch”, Disclosure and Eliza Doolittle’s “You and Me”, Disclosure and AlunaGeorge’s “White Noise”, and “AlunaGeorge’s “Attracting Flies”. “White Noise” and “Latch” reached #2 and #11 on the U.K. charts.
Sopher is claiming £200,000 ($302,710) in damages.
Sean Sawyers denies the allegations, saying he never even saw her notebook with song lyrics.
