Lane has filed a lawsuit against the singer claiming that the hit is a rip-off of his song called 'XOXO', reports a website.
In his suit, Lane says he wrote the song 'XOXO' and shared it with another singer who provided background vocals for Beyonce.
The 33-year-old diva learned of the song and then stole it for her 2013 self-titled album 'Beyonce'.
This is not Beyonce's first time to have faced trouble over 'XO'. In late December, former NASA astronauts and their family slammed the former 'Destiny's Child' member for using audio from the space shuttle 'Challenger' explosion at the beginning of the track.
