Singer Justin Timberlake is being sued by Cirque du Soleil for copyright infringement.

Cirque claims that the Grammy-winning singer illegally used a sample of one of their original songs titled "Steel Dream," which originally appeared in Cirque's show "Quidam" and on a 1997 album of the same name.

It was reportedly used on Timberlake's track "Don't Hold the Wall."

Timberlake's co-writers were also named in the lawsuit.

Cirque is seeking $800,000 in damages.

Timerlake has not yet commented on the lawsuit.
