Everyone wants Taylor Swift's money. No, really. The singer is getting sued by a R&B artist for some serious bucks. The kicker? This isn't the only lawsuit she's dealing with these days!

According to TMZ, Tay Tay is being sued by a man who claims she jacked his "haters gonna hate" line for her hit song "Shake It Off." Jessie Braham says Taylor's signature hit borrows heavily from a song he wrote in 2013 called "Haters Gone Hate."

His song lyrics are, "Haters gone hate, playas gone play. Watch out for them fakers, they'll fake you everyday." He points out that his song phrase is used more than 70 times in Taylor's 2014 song. He's basically saying ... her entire chorus is a ripoff of his song.

Jessie, who also goes by Jessie Graham on his track, wants $42 million from Taylor, and wants his name added to any new prints of "Shake It Off." Ugh.

He's not the only person taking Taylor to court, either. A radio DJ is suing her after she allegedly got him fired from his job after complaining that he grabbed her butt backstage at a concert meet and greet.

Compare Jessie and Taylor's tunes below. Whose side are you on?
