Justin Bieber and Skrillex may be 'Sorry' after musician sues them for sampling

Justin Bieber and producer Skrillex have been sued over their 2015 hit 'Sorry'.

Musician Casey Dienel, who uses the stage name White Hinterland, said they used a sample from her 2014 track 'Ring The Bell' without permission.

The piece of music is eight seconds long and is regularly used in Bieber's 'Sorry'.

Dienel said in legal action that the "unique characteristics of the female vocal riff" in her song had been unlawfully borrowed.

TMZ add that Bieber and his management were told not to use the sample.

The track features on the Canadian's hit 2015 album 'Purpose'.
