Beyonce Knowles is being sued over her single XO by her background singer Ahmad Javon Lane.

Lane has filed a lawsuit against the singer, claiming that the hit is a rip-off of his song called XOXO, reported TMZ.

In his suit, Lane says he wrote the song XOXO and shared it with another singer who provided background vocals for Beyonce.

The 33-year-old diva learned of the song and then stole it for her 2013 self-titled album Beyonce.

Lane is now seeking at least USD 3 million in damages.

This is not Beyonce's first time to have faced trouble over XO. In late December, former NASA astronauts and their family slammed the former Destiny's Child member for using audio from the space shuttle Challenger explosion at the beginning of the track.
