Published May 27, 2016Yesterday (May 26), White Hinterland (a.k.a. Casey Dienel) brought some serious allegations against Justin Bieber, accusing him and producer Skrillex of stealing her vocals for a loop featured on their hit "Sorry." Now, however, Skrillex (a.k.a. Sonny Moore) has taken to Twitter to defend his and Bieb's work, uploading a video showing how the vocal sample in the song was made.
Skrillex simply wrote, "SORRY but we didn't steal this" and shared the clip below:
It's safe to assume that the "Julia" he is referring to in the video is undoubtedly "Sorry" co-writer Julia Michaels.
Strangely enough, however, earlier today Diplo told TMZ, "I thought they sampled it, but I thought they cleared it."
Diplo added, "I'm sure they'll work out a deal with her. They don't want to go to court with it."
As previously reported, Dienel filed a lawsuit this week alleging that Bieber and co.'s "Sorry" lifts the "unique characteristics of the female vocal riff" to White Hinterland's "Ring the Bell," which was the first single off of the artist's 2014 LP, Baby.
