    Christina Aguilera's label is reportedly facing a lawsuit surrounding her single, "Ain't No Other Man." Ut oh. Or to quote Scooby Doo: "Rut roh." Aguilera cannot catch a break, huh? She was just arrested last week for public drunkenness.

    According to TMZ, Aguilera's song samples the 1968 song "Hippy Skippy Moon Strut," also known as "I'll Be A Lucky Man," by Dave Cortez and the Moon People. According to a federal lawsuit filed in New York, the song's exclusive rights have been owned by TufAmerica since 2004. However, Sony Music went through Codigo Music and the Clyde Otis Music Group to get clearance.

    TufAmerica's lawsuit is asking for a court to declare it the rightful owner to "Hippy Skippy Moon Strut" and put a stop to any other publisher's claims. And of course, TufAmerica is asking for damages.

    Sounds like this was a clerical mistake, maybe? The rights were not paid to the newer owners, it seems?

    Are you "over" Christina Aguilera and all of her drama?
