Tulisa ‘Wins Legal Battle Against Will.i.am over Britney Track’

Pop star Tulisa will receive 10% of all royalties from the Britney Spears and will.i.am track Scream And Shout after she won a legal battle against him, according to her publicist.

The song topped the UK singles chart in 2012 but it was claimed the British singer had co-written the track before The Black Eyed Peas rapper personally became involved and released it for himself and Britney.

 Tulisa said she collaborated on an original version with will.i.am’s producers Jean Baptiste and Jef Martens – reportedly as a demo – and had planned for it to be included in her album The Female Boss.

It is believed Tulisa became annoyed when the song was taken from her and given to Britney, especially as she had co-written it, and a long legal battle began.

 

Tulisa’s representatives argued the former N-Dubz star and X Factor judge should be included in the song’s credits and also receive royalties.

Her publicist has been quoted as saying a musicologist report found Tulisa’s vocals were mixed into will.i.am and Britney’s track.

It is reported that all the money made from the track was frozen in 2012 when she launched her lawsuit.

Following her reported victory, all the money can be released and Tulisa will get 10% of everything the track has made in its lifetime.

And the singer will also be named as a songwriter on the hit song.

Sky News has connected Tulisa’s representatives for comment.
