90’s Star Cece Peniston the Latest to Accuse Lizzo of Stealing: ‘At Least Give Proper Credit!’

Published: Saturday 19th Oct 2019 by Rashad

Is ‘Truth Hurts’ star Lizzo learning that very lesson thanks to a number of accusers coming forward to claim elements of the song were swiped from their respective work with no permission?

On Tuesday (October 15), producer Justin Raisen (best known for his work with Charli XCX, Yves Tumor, Sky Ferreira, Kim Gordon, and more) took to assert he deserved at least partial credit for the song’s famous lyric, “I just took a DNA test turns I’m 100% that b*tch.”  Even going on to offer video proof that Lizzo (born Melissa Jefferson) was not the originator of the line, Jefferson later clapped back via her rep/attorney, Cynthia S. Arato, who stated:

“They [Raisen and his brother] did not collaborate with Lizzo or anyone else to create this song, and they did not help write any of the material that they now seek profit from, which is why they expressly renounced any claim to the work, in writing, months ago.”

The Raisen allegation was the second, but certainly not the last, time the burgeoning diva was slammed with accusations of copyright infringement.  More inside:

After singer Minalioness uploaded this to prove she was the originator of the line…

Lizzo hit back with:



While Lizzo is battling those accusers for ‘Truth Hurts,’ 90’s singing sensation Cece Peniston is wielding a few accusations of her own for the 31-year-old’s hit single, ‘Juice.’  Claiming the song has striking similarities to her own 1991 top 5 hit, ‘Finally,’ Peniston took to Instagram earlier this week to say:


A day later she doubled down with “proof” courtesy of a mashup of the two songs.  Listen below and see if you think Cece has a case:

    Lizzo is a ? her music is not the tea and the true queen Iggy Azalea reigns supreme

    • You tried October 19, 2019

      IGGY is what? Please stop

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 20, 2019

      I here it. You have to turn the volume up on CeCe’s singing because her voice is a lower rage. The notes are and counts are identical. Lizzo sings it the exact same way CeCe does but she is louder.

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 20, 2019

        Range not rage

  2. Jay Northernstar October 19, 2019

    I don’t see it

  3. lucy fur October 19, 2019

    i don’t like lizzo or her music but this is out of control. everyone is so money hungry

    • Juju October 20, 2019

      Same! It’s funny I mainly see this coming from American music. If you listen to music from other countries they have MUCH MORE similarities than these and they do not battle as these dollar meals do. Sometimes I personally do not get it… they have to register the song and copyright it and it’s all for nothing since these people come forward claims it was all them.

  4. King z October 19, 2019

    I hate that people do this

    Nobody alleges copyright infringement until a song is a mega hit. On its way to the top nobody said anything except the minalioness girl

    • FAF October 19, 2019

      because monetarily it makes no sense to litigate over a song noone has heard

      So if they’re going to court it’s usually for a song that’s been successful worldwide

  5. Only Facts October 19, 2019

    What a mess. I believe the two brothers that came out with a video on insta. But why did none of these people come out two years ago when the song was originally released? Why wait until the song hits #1?

    • Clarkson October 20, 2019

      U are not intelligent for asking that question.

      • Oh plz October 20, 2019

        A dumb ass who consistently confuses “quite” and “quiet” shouldn’t speak on intelligence. GTFO

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 20, 2019

      You assume they knew about the song before it was a hit. Even if they knew it is better to do it the Ronald Isley way like when he sued Michael Bolton. Let these MFs get a hit and release their album then sue and get you a large settlement check or take it to court if the artist dont want to settle or mediate with you!

  6. Pu$$yPopstress October 19, 2019

    How has Cece managed to look 40 for the last 40 years?

  7. Haut Sawse October 19, 2019

    Sorry CeCe but that is a complete reach!!!

  8. romy October 20, 2019

    You have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem.
    I have been working with this for a month and have made over $2,000 already. let me know if you need more help.

    Lizzo is the new Beyonce. Leave her alone!

  11. Jasmine The Real Princess October 20, 2019

    I took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% cleptoyonce

  12. Steve October 20, 2019

    It’s what success smells like.

  13. Lanafan1 October 20, 2019

    This is a reach!

  14. Mr RCW October 20, 2019

    Seems like Cee May be owed a check ?

  15. Shayla Queen October 20, 2019

    Her music is wack af anyway. I don’t get the hype.

  16. beyhivesunlimited October 20, 2019

    Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj are still the Queen and Empress of Rap/Pop

  17. eric October 20, 2019

    I had just assumed that it was a remake or tribute when I first heard it. It’s a shame to learn that she and her producers were trying to pass it off as an original song. Her explanation is not even the least bit credible. Show Cece her due respect.

  18. Clhos711 October 22, 2019

    Umm no their totally different to me. Pleas cece
