beyonce knowles1R ‘n’ B singer Beyonce Knowles is reportedly set to testify in court in connection with a copyright dispute, after a man alleged that Destiny’s Child claimed his song as their own.

Singer/songwriter Rickey Allen had filed a lawsuit against the girl group in 2006, claiming their 2004 track Cater 2 U was inspired by a song he composed with the same title, which he first copyrighted in the mid-1990s.

Allen’s song is about “relieving the stress of a significant other” and he insists even the lyrics in Destiny’s Child’s song are suspiciously similar to his.

He claimed he handed over a version of his song to producer Maurice Joshua, who is said to have later worked with the Bootylicious hitmakers in the studio. Joshua maintains he never held a copy of the song.

Lawyers for the trio, which disbanded in 2005, asked to throw out the case but U.S. District Judge James Holderman has now given the go-ahead for the copyright case to hit a Chicago, Illinois courtroom on December 10.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper, Beyonce is expected to take the stand, because her legal team claims she came up with the idea for the track.

“She is perhaps the most important witness for the defendants,” Contactmusic quoted a statement in their legal filing as stating.

“Do we say (Beyonce’s) responsible for copying? Yes. But there’s no such thing as innocent copying, even if it’s unintentional. The jury will decide the notion that these are simple coincidences,” Allen’s lawyer Matt Wildermuth added.

The trial was previously delayed due to Knowles’ busy schedule.

The actress had previously stripped off for a kinky lap dance in the movie ‘The Hills Run Red’.

But even with her sexy routine, the film still went straight-to-DVD.

“Tom Cruise – let me see – one of the hardest working people I’ve ever seen and, like, a total gentleman and *******. What a jerk!” he sarcastically stated.

And when Handler asked him about actor Brad Pitt, Carrey chose to talk about Jolie, 34, instead.

“Well you really can’t say anything about Brad Pitt. Angelina Jolie? Oh yeah, so she’s the problem for sure, we’re ok with him, seriously, because he can do no wrong,” he joked.

The kids will remain on tour with Spears until her Circus tour wraps on November 29, reports the Daily Telegraph.

shah rukh khanMalacca government is planning to rope in Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan to perform at a concert organised to mark UN World Assembly of Youths 60th anniversary celebrations.

Shah Rukh was conferred a ‘Datukship’ title by Malacca Governor Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob last December for indirectly promoting the state to the world through six movies.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said that the event will be held at Stadium Hang Jebat in Krubong to enable as many fans as possible to catch their Bollywood idol in action.

“We are trying to get a private company or maybe several more to sponsor the event,” The Star Online quoted the Rustam as saying.

“It will be worth their while as they can get international publicity if Shah Rukh Khan endorses their products,” he added.

He said state representatives had recently met the star in India to discuss how to promote and develop the local film industry.

However, Shah Rukh said he was not keen on setting up a studio there due to time constraints, but he said he would be glad to assist the state as an adviser.

“I”ve been very honest with him from the get-go,” Us magazine quoted her as saying.

She added: “I think women are beautiful. I”ve had a lot of fun with women, and I”m not ashamed of it.

“The problem is that I also love a well-endowed man. But just because I enjoy women doesn’t mean I”m allowed to have affairs in my relationship.”

Cheryl ColeSinger Cheryl Cole will team up with Snow Patrol to help raise funds for a children’s charity.

The Girls Aloud star will perform the band’s hit ‘Set the Fire to the Third Bar’ for a special Children in Need charity gig.

“People have raised an eyebrow now and again when we”ve mentioned we”re doing it with Cheryl Cole but I think it”s going to be a really interesting experience,” the Mirror quoted frontman Gary Lightbody as saying.

“She said ”What song do you want to do?” and we said that, and she went away and listened to it. I think she”d only heard a couple of our singles.

“She got back straight away and said ”yeah, I”m up for it.” Hats off to her,” he added.
