Cirque Du Soleil Is Suing Justin Timberlake For Ripping Off Their Music — Yes, MUSIC!

Fun Fact: Apparently Cirque du Soleil makes music.

Did anyone know Cirque du Soleil even made music?! Well, Justin Timberlake sure does!

On Thursday, the popular circus sued the soulful singer for copyright infringement, claiming a track off the artist's 20/20 album sampled one of their songs without permission!

We're a little confused as to why this complaint is just getting filed now, since that album dropped back in 2013, but we digress.

The Canadian company took their grievance to New York federal court, saying in the legal papers that JT's number Don't Hold the Wall sampled their tune Steel Dream, from their 1997 album QUIDAM.

Yes, album! Cirque du Soleil's actually released a BUNCH of records over the years, believe it or not!

But anyway, the entertainment corporation is suing the famous father, his producer Timbaland, and Sony Music Entertainment for $800,000 worth in damages!

Ch-ch-check out the two songs (below) and let us know in the comments if U think the circus is just trying to make a quick buck, or if this is a classic case of copyright!

Back in 2014, the brunette beauty claimed she had been raped and sexually assaulted by the actor in 1982.

After the comedian's team slammed the celeb's story, claiming she made up the whole thing, the model decided to take legal action and sue for defamation.

On Tuesday, Judge Debre Katz Weintraub ruled in Los Angeles Superior Court that a trial by jury should be able to decided whether or not the former America's Next Top Model judge is telling the truth.

After the ruling, Janice's lawyer, Lisa Bloom, says this win is a big one — because Bill's team has been working very hard to keep his other cases from going to trial.

Outside the courthouse, the famous female couldn't contain her excitement, yelling:

Gawker Founder Nick Denton Has NO REGRETS About Posting Hulk Hogan's Sex Tape! Watch His Unapologetic GMA Interview!

no title

No one works in the media to make friends!

Earlier this week, Hulk Hogan was awarded $115 million in his trial against Gawker Media, who the WWE star sued for posting a sex tape of him and his former best friend's wife.

In addition to Hogan (born Terry Bollea)'s compensatory damages, the Florida jury added $25.1 million in punitive damages as they believed that the controversial site broke the law.

The jurors had strong words for the site's founder Nick Denton, who they believed never showed any signs of remorse during the trial — and according to Denton, the jury was absolutely right!

Gawker Founder Nick Denton Writes A Lengthy Rebuttal To Hulk Hogan's $140 Million Victory: 'We Will Be Vindicated'

Filed under: Legal MattersHulk Hogan

no title

Nick Denton is NOT backing down!

As we reported on Monday, Hulk Hogan was awarded $140 million against Gawker Media for posting his sex tape with his former best friend's wife.

On Tuesday, the blog's founder wrote a lengthy post on his website where he plans to fight the verdict.

He said:

"Emotion was permitted to trump the law, and key evidence and witnesses were kept from the jury. We have had our day in trial court, and we lost. We will have our day back in appeals court, and we will be vindicated."

The 49-year-old journalist believes the case wasn't so much about the wrestler's sex life; it was about the racial slurs Hogan said in the footage.

"Hogan filed the claim because he was terrified that one of the other tapes, which memorialized his rant about his daughter dating "fucking n***ers," might emerge. As I have come to learn, Hogan himself put it in a text message to his best friend… days after we published our story: ‘We know there's more than one tape out there and a one that has several racist slurs were told. I have a [pay-per-view special] and I am not waiting for anymore surprises….' I had suspicions, but it is now clear that Hogan's lawsuit was a calculated attempt to prevent Gawker, or anyone else who might obtain evidence of his racism, from publishing a truth more interesting and more damaging than a revelation about his sex life."'

The British writer believes the trial was one-sided from the start.

"The plaintiff's lawyers, with the occasional assist from our witnesses, successfully painted Gawker as representative of an untrammeled internet that good and decent people should find frightening and distasteful."
