Beyoncé and Jay Z have been sued by a Hungarian folk singer who claims the 33-year-old superstar recorded her vocals in 1995 and then used the stolen material in her hit song, ”Drunk in Love.”
In a civil suit filed by Monika Miczura Juhasz — known as Mitsou — the singer claims Bey recorded her in 1995 while she was singing a traditional Roma folk song she learned from her grandmother. The suit says, “Mitsou’s voice was sampled and digitally manipulated without her permission.”

Jay, Beyoncé and producer Timbaland were all named as defendants.
All together, Mitsou alleges her voice can be heard for more than a minute-and-a-half of the five-and-a-half-minute-long song. As the suit explains, “Mitsou has never signed any documents that would permit anyone to use her voice for advertising or trade purposes.”

She’s seeking unspecified damages and is trying to prevent anyone from playing the song as long as it features her voice.
The song — which has garnered more than 237 million views on YouTube — helped Beyoncé nab two of her five nominations for the 2015 Grammy Awards.
