A Ukrainian singer is calling Carly Rae Jepsen a thief.

According to TMZ.com , the singer, known as Aza , is claiming in a new lawsuit that her song, “Hunky Santa,” was the inspiration for Carly’s mega-hit “Call Me Maybe.” She seeks unspecified damages in the suit, which also names Carly and Justin Bieber ’s manager, Scooter Braun .

Aza tells TMZ, "I'm shocked and surprised that these people wanted to sample my lyrics on their song. They didn't ask me for permission, they just took it.”

Carly’s rep denies the allegation to TMZ, saying, "This is completely false and [Carly's] lawyers will deal with this. Everyone knows [Carly] is a songwriter. She is not spending a lot of time listening to Ukrainian radio."
