Hollywood star Justin Timberlake is the latest singer to run into legal trouble over alleged copyright infringement.

Theatrical company Cirque du Soleil has sued the Grammy-winning singer, accusing him of sampling part of one of the performance company’s original songs in his track Don’t Hold the Wall, a cut from his 2013 album The 20/20 Experience, without permission.

The lawsuit claims that Timberlake borrowed from Steel Dream, a song that originally appeared in Quidam, Cirque’s ninth stage production, and later on a 1997 album of the same name.

The suit, filed Thursday in a New York federal court, is seeking $800,000 in copyright infringement damages.

Timbaland, J-Roc and James Fauntleroy, Don’t Hold the Wall’s co-writers, along with Sony Entertainment, Universal Music and WB Music Corp. were also named as defendants in Cirque’s suit.

No stranger to copyright infringement-related accusations, Timberlake was sued by the 1970s rhythm and blues band Sly, Slick and Wicked earlier this year over his song Suit & Tie, claiming that it borrowed elements from their song Sho’ Nuff.
