Destiny's Child Accused of Song Theft-Again
Proving one of my older theories, that having a hit song is like putting a bull's eye on your back that says "sue me," it seems that the bulls-eye on R&B group Destiny's Child, is quickly becoming one that is in need of reupholstering.
Producer T-Rob of Miami (real name Terrence Robinson) has filed a $200 million lawsuit against the group's singer, Beyonce Knowles, and fellow group members alleging they stole his music for the hit song ``Survivor.'' This suit is only one of several that the superstar group has had to sustain regarding song-theft and defamation, and the third suit related specifically to authorship of "Survivor."

Representing Robinson is Peter J. Clarke who claims his client--who was essentially an un-known--heard stolen pieces of his material used in a commercial and felt dissed. ``I know right now I would be one of the biggest, most sought-after producers,'' said Robinson, alleging what would have happened if he received credit.
Knowles' father and manager righteously insisted, "Somebody has got to be lying.'' He said the group wrote the lyrics and let State of Mind Muzic producer, Anthony Dent do the rest.
"Survivor," was a No. 2 hit and earned the group a Grammy in 2002 for best R&B performance.
