Singer Lana Dey Rey has confirmed that Radiohead is suing her for copyright infringement.
The 32-year-old tweeted to her followers that the British rock band has filed a lawsuit claiming her song Get Free on her was inspired by the groups' 1992 hit Creep.
"It's true about the lawsuit," the singer tweeted. "Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing."
"I offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100," she continued. "Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court."

The song is the last track on Del Rey's new album Lust For Life, which was released last year, and went to number one in the charts both the United Kingdom and the United States.
A source has told News.com, “Both teams are trying to thrash it out behind the scenes to prevent it from going to court."
"It's understood that Radiohead's team are hoping for the band to either receive compensation or be credited on the list of songwriters to receive royalties," they continued.
Youtube's comment section on Lana's song was full of comments about the comparison's between the artists song.
"I am a big Radiohead fan and you can all clearly tell the chord progression is the same," One user said. "But I don't think it was right for them to sue her for copyright."
"This is a blatant ripoff of Creep," another wrote. "Anybody saying otherwise doesn't know anything about music. "
