Justin Timberlake is in hot water with Cirque du Soleil.

Mr. SexyBack himself is being sued by the group for allegedly sampling part of their song “Steel Dream” on his 20/20 Experience track “Don’t Hold the Wall.” Timberlake’s co-writers Timbaland, J-Roc, and James Fauntleroy are all named as defendants, alongside Sony Entertainment, Universal Music, and WB Music Corp.

Cirque du Soleil is seeking $800,000 in damages. No word from Justin’s camp on the matter.

Speaking of Justin, the singer is set to appear on an upcoming episode of Pharrell‘s Beats 1 Show along with Tyler, the Creator and Neptunes’ Chad Hugo.

Snow White’s sister may be coming around to steal the spotlight.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney is planning a live action film about Snow White’s sister, Rose Red. Justin Merz’s Red was initially written as a stand-alone feature, but then Evan Daugherty came up with a new take that made the story closer to the animated classic, giving Rose a “companion piece” feel.

In Red, when Snow White takes a bite from the iconic poison apple and falls into her Sleeping Death, her estranged sister, Rose Red, must undertake a dangerous quest with Grumpy and the other dwarves to find a way to break the curse and bring Snow White back to life.

Justin Merz and Adam Rodin are co-producing the project.
