Haters gonna hate! Oh, sorry. Is that too soon, Jesse Braham?
Last month, the artist sued Taylor Swift for supposedly ripping off his 2013 song Haters Gone Hate! But PerezHilton.com can exclusively reveal that the lawsuit was officially thrown out of court on Tuesday!
The singer had claimed that "92% of the lyrics" of the pop princess' feel-good anthem Shake It Off had actually come from his own creation.

The performer wanted $42 million in damages, because he had alleged that the 25-year-old "would not have written Shake It Off had he not written Haters Gone Hate."
We find that hard to believe, considering the court documents reveal that "haters gonna hate" and "players gonna play" showed up on Google Trends YEARS before his track was even released.
And let's be real. If ANYONE introduced those phrases to the music world, it was the lovely ladies of 3LW.
So, it didn't seem like Jesse's argument really had much support to it, and it looks like the judge agreed! In fact, Judge Gail Standish HIGHlariously referenced Taylor's lyrics in the case's conclusion, writing:
