Beyonce claps back at $20 million “Formation” sampling lawsuit


Beyonce may have sampled the voice of late New Orleans digital personality, Anthony Barre a.k.a Messy Mia, to further enhance smash jammy jam, “Formation,” but barely enough to warrant any Mrs. Carter checks being made out to his estate, according to the Lemonade singing stunner’s legal team…

While Yonce serves as the fairer half of music’s first billion-dollar couple, accomplishing the feat alongside Hip-Hop slaying hubby Jay-Z, the 36-year-old is evidently NOT here for loosening her grip on their plentiful coins as lawyers for the songstress recently filed a response to Anthony’s $20 million lawsuit stating Baddie Bey’s use of ol’ boy’s voice is “reasonable and justified.”

While the deceased online figure’s estate claims they never gave Bey permission to sample Anthony, who was fatally shot in 2010, saying “I like that,” on her chart-topping, albeit controversial track, her attorneys, per court paperwork obtained by TMZ, maintain the complainants have no case because the use of homie’s voice— which was featured on the song for approximately 6 seconds—is so minimal that it doesn’t require compensation.

The severely snatched mother of three’s team has also reportedly invoked the First Amendment as justification for using Anthony’s words; however, that approach may not hold up well in court.
