Singer Beyonce Knowles received universal acclaim for her new album Lemonade, but now, she is being accused of stealing choreography on her Formation World Tour.
According to professional dancer and personal trainer named Marlyn Ortiz, the Run the World singer, who kicked off the tour in Miami, Florida on Wednesday, stole the routines from shows like De La Guarda and El Descueve, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Ortiz took to Instagram to share a clip of the alleged part which was stolen by Beyonce.

But Beyonce, you have the nerve to steal exact concepts and choreography from other real creative geniuses”.
“...It’s ok to be inspired but at least make the effort to make it your own,” she added.
While Ortiz mentioned that Knowles stole the moves on Partition music video from Crazy Horse Paris, one commenter defended Beyonce, saying that Crazy Horse and other shows were credited in the singer’s tour book.
