Now here's Allyson Burnett's song, "Ah, It's a Love Song". 

Burnett claims that she suffered "emotional and psychological damage" as a result of her song allegedly being ripped off.

Jepsen's manager says his client is not one of the authors of the song and is not receiving benefits from writing the song.

He says he believes Burnett will drop the lawsuit against Jepsen.
