Justin Bieber is gonna have to do a lot more than say he's sorry to get out of this one!
The superstar is being sued by an indie pop singer who claims Bieberoni ripped her vocal loop for his smash hit Sorry!
According to TMZ, Casey Dienel – who goes by the stage name White Hinterland — claims the "unique characteristics of the female vocal riff" off her 2014 single Ring The Bell are identical to Sorry.
Though JB only uses eight seconds of the riff in the song, Dienel says he repeats it six times over the track — and also points out that both songs feature keyboard synthesizers, synth bass, drums, and percussion.

Noting that her single was a hit in itself garnering over 800k online streams, Dienel alleges that she already told Biebs to stop using the sample last December — but he ignored her!
Now, not only is she coming after the Purpose hitmaker, but named Skrillex (who produced the hit) and the songwriters as defendants!
Yikes! This could get ugly.
Take a listen to both songs (below) to hear the very recognizable riff!
