By tysheeks


The estate of the late youtuber Anthony Barre formally known as ‘Messy Mya’ has filed a law suit against Beyonce for using a clip from one of his youtube clips in her ‘Formation’ video.

The sample comes from a video that dates back to 2010.

Via TMZ:

Barré’s estate claims Beyonce straight-up ripped the deceased artist’s “I like that” phrase without permission … and then went on to make millions off the track. Barré, a YouTube star, was shot and killed in 2010. 

The estate goes on to claim they tried talking to Beyonce about the sample … but says she blew them off.

Now, the estate is asking for more than $20,000,000 in back royalties and other damages for using some of his final recorded words.
