Ed Sheeran is not receiving any royalties for his hit song ‘Shape Of You, after being accused of “appropriating” another musician’s work.

The 28-year-old has been hit with new allegations which accuse him of being “consciously or subconsciously in the habit of appropriating the compositional skill and labour of other songwriters”.

Sheeran has denied the allegations.

Documents lodged at the High Court reference claims from Sam Chokri (Sami Switch), who is fighting Sheeran in court over allegations that the songwriter copied the chorus for Shape Of You from Chokri’s 2015 song Oh Why.

Chokri alleges that he sent the track to Sheeran’s “circle” in an attempt to work with the megastar, but claims he later heard it on Shape Of You.

The latest court case alleged Sheeran has stolen from other artists including girlband TLC, Jamaican reggae artist Shaggy and American country singer Jasmine Rae.

Chokri claims that Sheeran was forced to include Shaggy in the writing credits of Liam Payne’s song Strip That Down, which he co-wrote, for using part of the melody from the reggae star’s It Wasn’t Me.
