British pop star Jessie J is a "Domino" thief ... so says the singer of a California band ... who claims Jessie's smash hit is simply a ripoff of one of his songs.

Jessie is being sued by Will Loomis from the band "Loomis & The Lust" ... whose music has been featured on MTV's Iggy and the Spike TV show "Blue Mountain State."



In the docs, Loomis claims Jessie's 2011 hit "Domino" incorporates huge chunks of his 2008 song "Bright Red Chords."

Loomis claims he never gave Jessie permission to jack his song ... and is now suing for damages. So far, no comment from Jessie J's camp. 

Fun Fact: Jessie J has sold more than 11 million singles and 2.5 million albums to date ... Loomis & The Lust have a very nice Myspace page.

Those two songs do not sound alike, the words aren't the same.

completely baseless. Yes there is a resemblance.. just another no name band trying to make themselves famous.. Also if TMZ did actual fact checking, Jessie J is listed as a CO WRITER of the song.. which is code for she MAYBE wrote three words.. So if they have a problem it is with her label, not her.. and that would be a **** show, watching a no named band trying to go up against a powerhouse record label. Not fair but true.

The structure at the beginning is similar but the notes and lyrics are completely different, he hasn't got a leg to stand on. It's like saying that all rap songs have ripped someone else off cos they all have rapping in them. Baseless.

This is actually prob the dumbest thing on the bands part. One to immediately assume she ripped you off is funny in itself when this melody has been around for years and sooo many songs you can find with that same verse melody..Its not new at all. If anyone should be suing it should be katy perry for this song is basically a katy perry b-side track..However i love it!

Majestik, Who is stupider? The writers of this company, or the person who came here looking for noble prize winning authorship? They were being funny about it, maybe you should get off your "intelligence horse" and look around.

Um, no they don't have a case. Next!
All this time I thought JJ was singing Katy Perry's song at the Jubilee. Boy am I late! You think Katy Perry is going to sue her for impersonating her?

Loomis and the Lust must be deaf and perhaps just want to cash in on someone elses talent, the song is not remotely similar .

I once looked up into the sky and thought of a song. Does that mean the sky will sue me? Ok, one, no one would be that stupid anymore to rip off something when this can happen. 2, why did they wait so long? 3. GET OVER YOURSELF, BAND.

Im no Jessie J fan but if you listen to the live version of this at the BBC lounge on youtube you will be floored at the natural talent this woman has. She clearly needs no help from anyone. Baseless claim

Oh so there is a slight resemblance in few spots. If they sue for this, all bands could sue someone. Music is music. and there are going to be songs that sound similar ... thats how music goes. HUGE publicity stunt!
