Cheryl Cole's 'Fight For This Love" In Legal Battle
The writers of the hit tune have been accused of ripping of another track...
Cheryl Cole is reportedly in the middle of a legal battle over her chart-topping smash hit, Girls Aloud beauty's first solo single, penned by Wayne Wilkins, Stephen Kipner and Andre Merritt in 2008 - copies a previously unreleased track entitled I Want You Back.
Seven music companies have allegedly joined forces to issue of a High Court order, denying that Cheryl's song breached copyright rules, with Merritt and Kipner claiming that they never heard I Want You Back when writing for Cole.
The writ states that Wilkins created the backing music, while Kipner and Merritt concentrated on the melody and lyrics.
However, Wilkins did work on I Want You Back seven years before he started creating Fight For This Love, but he "can't remember" the input he had on the track.
A High Court judge will now decide whether Cheryl's first solo No.1 did copy the other song or not.
