Tory Lanez Samples George Michael Without Permission

Last year pop star Madonna called out Tory Lanez for sampling her smash hit single 'Into the Groove' without permission [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Tory is in trouble to sampling George Michael...

The Estate of George Michael issued a statement to Variety that reads,
'It was brought to our attention that the song Enchanted Waterfall by the artist Tory Lanez incorporated an unauthorised sample of "Careless Whisper" written by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley.
'Requested permission for this use had been declined in June 2021 so we took immediate action on behalf of the writers, in collaboration with our publishers Warner Chappell Music, to prevent further exploitation as we will not tolerate any unauthorised use of any songs within the catalogues of George Michael and/or Andrew Ridgeley.'

I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight
Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down.

He's desperate for a hit song. With all his legal troubles he needs money. Lawyer's cost big coins. Didn't he just get evicted?
He has the nappies beard.
