A week before Beyoncé rocked the world with Lemonade, she posted a trailer for the visual album on YouTube.

But according to a new lawsuit filed by an independent filmmaker, the high profile trailer totally ripped off his 2014 short film!

Matthew Fulks, who describes himself as both an indie filmmaker and creative director at Louisville based news station WDRB, claims Sony Music, Columbia Records, and even Bey's Parkwood Entertainment were aware of his short film Palinoia before filming Lemonade.

In the complaint, Fulks claims after being contacted about the opportunity to direct a video for the Columbia-signed group MS MR, links to Palinoia were sent to Columbia Record's Bryan Younce — who has been credited on Bey's self-titled 2013 album.

The lawsuit alleges that in July 2015, Younce sent Fulks an email with an invitation to submit a treatment for consideration by Columbia.

Five months later, filming began for Lemonade. Hmmm…

Fulks believes several elements of the Lemonade trailer were jacked from Palinoia – including

Ben Folds Opens Up About Kesha's Dr. Luke Drama & Says Their Performance At The Billboard Music Awards Was Her 'Declaration Of Independence!'

See what Ben has to say about the Dr. Luke drama!

Kesha really is taking her life back.

On Sunday, the pop princess earned a standing ovation after slaying a powerful performance of Bob Dylan's It Ain't Me Babe alongside Ben Folds and violinist Rob Moose.

Everyone was eagerly awaiting the 29-year-old's time on the T-Mobile Arena stage, considering Dr. Luke had almost banned her from singing during the show.

On Monday, the former Ben Folds Five frontman opened up to Billboard about their emotional collaboration, explaining that the Sony producer screwed up their original plan by pulling the plug:

"We were slated to do it for weeks, and [last week] she was heading over to my house and we were getting ready to practice and I got the word that it was in fact canceled. Rob Moose [of yMusic], who played violin [at the BBMAs], and I had arranged it for a small chamber ensemble. And [during the Orpheum performance last week], it went over really well. But then we got the call: 'Actually, you're on [for the BBMAs], bring the ensemble.' 'Oh, we can't because they're all on airplanes now,' so Rob and I just pared it down."

But the 49-year-old admitted that the TiK ToK artist didn't have any intention of calling out her alleged abuser at the ceremony.

He explained why the singer kept her promise to leave the Kemosabe Records label head out of her TV time, saying:

Kesha's Mom GOES OFF On NY Judge Who Denied Her Daughter's Injunction After Dr. Luke Cancels The Singer's Billboard Music Awards Performance!

See what she has to say!

Kesha has already reacted to her cancelled Billboard Music Awards performance, but now it's her mom's turn to sound off on the controversial call.

And to say she's not happy is a HUGE understatement.

On Wednesday, Pebe Sebert took to Twitter to call out the people responsible for pulling the plug on her daughter's upcoming performance. And believe it or not, she's not taking aim at Dr. Luke — well, not directly.

The 60-year-old went on social media to completely slam the American legal system, firing shots at the New York judge who denied the pop star her injunction bid to get out of a contract with her alleged abuser.

And while the Kemosabe label head was the one who decided to yank Kesha from the show, the momma-of-three decided to place blame on the woman who allowed the Sony producer to continue controlling her daughter's career, writing:

After the Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig reboot dropped its first trailer, there was backlash from fans over everything from racial stereotypes to "ruining" the original.

It was even reported that the trailer was the MOST UNLIKED trailer in the history of YouTube. Ouch!

Dr. Luke Won't Let Kesha Perform At The Billboard Music Awards After All!

no title

Well it was nice while it lasted…

Kesha and Dr. Luke have been wrapped up in the biggest legal battle of the year for what seems like an eternity, but we were pleasantly surprised when we heard that she was making new music again.

However, it seems as though K was a little too quick to voice her interest in publicly shaming the record exec with a "statement performance" at this year's Billboard Music Awards, because he pretty much just blocked her from showing up. AGAIN!!!

Apparently, the Kemosabe boss originally agreed to let Kesha perform some of her songs LIVE at this Sunday's awards show, but changed his mind last minute when he heard that she was planning on directly referencing their sexual assault case during the act.

While the pop star could still take the stage to perform songs that aren't her own… we're not sure that ABC would want to risk upsetting Sony without the guaranteed ratings.

Still, we're also hearing Kesha will be in attendance in Las Vegas regardless, so at least she's not backing down!

You'll just have to catch The Billboard Music Awards hosted by Ciara and Ludacris this Sunday at 8 p.m. EST on ABC to see if Kesha makes good on her promise!

California Judge Keeps Kesha's Sexual Assault Case Against Dr. Luke On Hold! Find Out Why!

Filed under: Legal MattersKeshaSex

Get the details on the decision!

Kesha may be taking her life back right now, but she still needs to wait to take on Dr. Luke in California court!

On Monday, Los Angeles Country Superior Judge Barbara Scheper decided to keep the pop star's sexual abuse case against the Sony producer on hold, at least for now.

The blonde's lawsuit had already been on hold because her alleged abuser's breach of contract countersuit in New York hasn't yet been resolved.

Luke's attorney Christine Lepara told Buzzfeed that she and her team want the LA judge to drop the case entirely, since the 29-year-old already had the chance to make her argument in The Empire State.

But instead of dismissing the songstress' suit, Barbara decided to keep it alive — or at least, in limbo — pending the results of the NY counterclaims.

This decision will be revisited on July 15, when the next status hearing is scheduled.
