UPDATE! A legal source tells us: "Mr. Braham, who is representing himself, cannot claim copyright protection for the phrases "haters gone hater" and "playas gone play" because the Copyright Act does not protect short phrases and these phrases are not original to him. In addition, and most damning to Mr. Braham's claim, the two songs have absolutely nothing in common."

NOW we got Bad Blood!

According to a recent lawsuit, Taylor Swift's hit song Shake It Off completely rips off ANOTHER song called Haters Gone Hate by Jesse Braham!

In Braham's 2013 song, he sings :

"Haters gone hater, playas gone play. Watch out for them fakers, they'll fake you everyday."

The artist — whose stage name is Jesse Graham — claims TayTay used this similar phrase more than 70 times.

He is asking for $42 million, and wants credit on any new prints of the 2014 pop hit.

Haters gone hate? They're also going to sue, sue, sue!
