Miley Cyrus Settles Lawsuit Which Claimed She Stole 'We Can't Stop'

Miley Cyrus has settled a lawsuit on the grounds that she stole her 2013 hit song “We Can’t Stop”.

Michael May, who performs as Flourgon, brought the suit to Miley last year, which claimed that she had stolen certain lyrics from his own song, “We Run Things”, which was a big hit in the 1980s.

One particular phrase that was very similar was “We run things. Things no run we,” which she sang as “We run things. Things don’t run we” in “We Can’t Stop”.

In new documents, all parties have agreed that “this action shall be discontinued with prejudice…with each party to bear its or his own costs and attorneys’ fees”, Reuters reports.

“With prejudice” means that bars the plaintiff from bringing an action on the same claim.

Miley‘s “We Can’t Stop,” from her’ album Bangerz, hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 2013.
