London: Christina Aguilera has been involved in a lawsuit over allegations bosses at her record label sampled a 1968 song in her track ‘Ain`t No Other Man’ without paying the rightful owner.

TMZ said that the singer’s hit single uses a beat from Dave Cortez and the Moon People’s soul song ‘Hippy Skippy Moon Strut’, reports a daily.

According to legal papers, filed in New York, TufAmerica bought the exclusive rights to the original song in 2004, but Aguilera’s label bosses at Sony made a deal with Codigo Music and the Clyde Otis Music Group to use the record.

Heads at TufAmerica are now asking a court to declare them the rightful owner of the song and are seeking damages.
