May also claimed that the songstress stole his "unique and creative lyrical phraseology in order to establish an overarching and pervasive theme.in the realm of self-discovery and self-governing". Furthermore, the Jamaican artist reportedly won "formal copyright protection" for all musical arrangements in "We Run Things" back in November.
Representatives for Cyrus, 25, did not immediately respond to requests for comment via Facebook and Twitter.
