It's inevitable when things are going so right for an artist, some unknown has to step in and throw a wrench in the works.

False sex tape claims, baby-daddy claims and the like shave all wormed their way into the lives of A-list stars and unfortunately for Sam Smith, Disclosure and AlunaGeorge, their number is up and all are getting sued for allegedly stealing lyrics from unknown East London songwriter, Katie Farrah Sopher.

According to Sopher, a notebook filled with lyrics, inspired by an abusive relationship, was stolen ex-boyfriend (and said abuser), Sean Sawyers, who sold lyrics to his industry contacts.

The suit claims lyrics in Latch (featuring Sam Smith), You and Me (featuring Eliza Doolittle), the AlunaGeorge/Disclosure collaboration White Noise, and AlunaGeorges own Attracting Flies. are hers and is demanding a sum of 200,000 pounds in damages.

No word from the artist's camps, but for his part Sawyers tells Daily Mail, "I am denying all the allegations. There is zero truth to the claims made against me. I never saw the book the claimant mentions."
