Justin Bieber Gets Entangled in Royalties Battle

Vance Tate and Thomas Oliveria, who represent Justin's 'One Less Lonely Girl' songwriters Sean Hamilton and Hyuk Shin, sued their clients, claming they have yet to receive their cut.

Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber has found himself at the center of a royalties battle over his hit song "One Less Lonely Girl". Artist managers Vance Tate and Thomas Oliveria, who represent the track's songwriters Sean Hamilton and Hyuk Shin, have taken legal action against their clients and executives at EMI Music Publishing and the LA Reid Music Publishing Company.

In the court papers, filed last week and ends on March 25, the managers claim they have yet to receive their cut of the publishing profits, 10 per cent of Hamilton and Shin's share of the track, which they estimate to be worth $200,000. The songwriting duo, working under the moniker A-Rex, created the tune in 2008 and it was eventually picked up by Bieber's team. The final version is credited to Hamilton, Shin, the teen's mentor Usher and two other songwriters.

Tate and Oliveria are suing for breach of contract, fraud, conversion and copyright infringement, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
