Tom Glennan was forced to cancel his debut single live after a lyric dispute arose.
The 27-year-old singer is being sued by an unnamed individual who claims the Lionheart hitmaker plagiarized lyrics from his 2016 track “Something in the Water,” and he believes the controversy is “really It’s hard.”
A source told The Sun’s Bizarre column:
“This is his first track and it means a lot to Tom, so it really hurts him when someone says that.
“He can no longer play the song live and is trying to fight it off.”
Tom recently expressed on his “Phone In” podcast that he was desperate to find video footage of him performing the song as a student at St. I hinted that I did. There is no physical evidence that he wrote “Something In The Water” himself.
“But there was no evidence that I wrote the song.
“I showed this song to someone before I signed the contract and when it came out he said he wrote the song.
“There’s a point where I don’t have access to anything in that song. It’s also one of my biggest songs.
“I can’t say what song it is, but it’s a work in progress.
“There’s a video of me doing it in college, but now everyone’s getting new phones and everyone’s throwing their phones away, so there’s no proof.
“I’m still waiting for someone to say ‘Oh, I found it!’ But unfortunately no one has.
