Kanye West continues to remain in headlines today, following news of a $1 million forged signature scam. According to TMZ, West is now being sued for using a little girl's prayer in his The Life of Pablo track, "Ultralight Beam."

Kanye reportedly asked for permission to apply the prayer to his song, but unfortunately, he spoke with the wrong person. TMZ notes that 'Ye and his camp approached the child's biological mother, Alice Johnson, for permission to use her daughter's voice. The only problem is that the girl's legal guardians are Andrew and Shirley Green, and they insist Alice Johnson obtains no legal right to give such permission.

The Greens also say that Kanye never sent a written agreement or payment for the sample. Now, they are suing for profits and damages.

Representatives for Kanye West have yet to speak on the matter at this time, but for more on the story, visit TMZ.
