Team Britney Sues Bellamy Brothers, Alleges "Hold It Against Me" Smear Campaign

by at . Comments

Backed by a whole team of attorneys and ready to strike back early and often, Britney Spears is not high on the list of celebrities you should slander.

Just some free advice there. Perhaps the Bellamy Brothers should have heeded this before claiming she ripped off "Hold It Against Me" from them.

Britney's songwriter Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald just filed a federal lawsuit accusing the Bellamy Brothers of a "smear campaign" against Spears.

The group says Brit's hit, written by Dr. Luke, is a knockoff of their 1979 song,"If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me?"

Gottwald says the Brothers' attack was "a publicity stunt aimed to increase their record sales ... and to combat their dwindling relevance." Burn.

In addition to damages for defamation, Dr. Luke wants a court order stating once and for all Britney's song has nothing to do with the BB's song. 

Seems to THG that Britney has just as much right to use a lame pickup line in her song lyrics as they do. Jerks. Here's the song in question:
