Ed Sheeran has been hit with a plagiarism lawsuit by two Australian songwriters.
The superstar singer doesn't just write his own songs, he also co-writes a number of song for other top-selling artists.
The 26-year-old is listed as a co-writer for the song The Rest Of Our Life by A-list country couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
However, the Hollywood Reporter reports the Aussie songwriters who filed the lawsuit, Sean Carey and Beau Golden, claim the track is "almost a note-for-note copy" of their song When I Found You, sung by Jasmine Rae, which was released in 2014.

"The copying is, in many instances, verbatim, not-for-note copying of important and original elements of the song, and is obvious to the ordinary observer," the complaint states.
The Australian pair are reportedly seeking $6.3 million ($5 million USD) in damages and also want the Tim McGraw and Faith Hill version to be permanently blocked.
Attorney Richard Busch is representing the Aussie songwriters.
In 2016, Busch was involved in the $25 million ($20 million) lawsuit against Sheeran for his song Photograph.
Two songwriters claimed Sheeran's song was a rip of a single released by former UK X Factor star Matt Cardle.
The case was eventually settled with the songwriters both being credited to the track.
